The 2017 Dodge Viper has now been put onto the endangered species list as no more orders are being taken for the vehicle. This is due to the car maker assessing how many vehicles are actually available for the final production year of the vehicle.
The head of Fiat Chrysler in North America said that the company no longer has plans to produce the Dodge Viper and so the 2017 model is the last one. He said that that this is farewell to the Viper and they had orders for it going into next year.
Many of the orders are for the same dealership in North Carolina. They revealed recently that they had made an order for 135 vehicles. The cars were ordered over the past couple of months and they now have five people selling the Dodge Viper.
They have special editions which they created with the One-of-One customize programs and these include 6 Black Stripe, 14 A/E Solid and 18 ACR Solid.
The Dodge Vipers that are on the website of Gerry Wood Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram website come with a retail price tag of $97,000 for the Viper SRT and go up to around $159,000 for the Black Stripe.
The website said that they had 99% of the last production models of the 2017 Dodge Viper, however it was found that this wasn’t true and they had to remove that statement.
So at the moment the ordering for the 2017 Dodge Viper is closed. Orders for the top of the line ACR closed on 27 September and all models closed on 7 October. It should open up again in the weeks to come but the timing is something that has yet to be determined.
The sales of the Dodge Viper from September 2015 to last month came to around 670 vehicles in the US, with sales of 447 of these taking place this year.
