Dodge Viper To Be Discontinued Due To Safety Issues?

By  | 

The Dodge Viper might not be a bestselling sports car but it is still a highly popular and powerful vehicle. Unfortunately, however, the Viper is about to get discontinued and this is apparently due to the strict automotive safety standards here in the US.

An insider from Dodge revealed that the Viper is not equipped with any side curtain airbags to prevent occupant ejection and it is not cost savvy for Dodge to simply add in the feature on the sports car.

The Viper already has a cramp, uncomfortable interior and adding the curtain side airbag might spell more torture for the driver. Besides, the Viper has never managed to return impressive sales figures and this could be the best reason for Dodge to give the car a break it deserves. Wouldn’t you agree?

Xbox 360, Playstation 3, Nintendo Wii, PC, iPhone and Android games keep Berke busy at work all day. Honestly though we’re not sure why we’re paying him as it should be the other way around.
