Why, oh, Why? First Generation Dodge Viper Pounded and Crushed

We’ve seen cars crushed because they were illegally imported to the United States. While I totally disagree with this practice, let’s just say there is some logic behind this, as some cars are deemed unsafe for U.S. consumers.

But how does one explain why a perfectly good car has to get crushed? If you love cars, and since you’re on this website that’s pretty obvious, watching the video posted below will be really painful.

It shows how a first-generation Dodge Viper is destroyed, much to the amusement of the audience. We don’t know why the Viper had to be rumbled down, but it may not be the only one to get this treatment since this is what the uploader wrote in the description: “We had to destroy this Dodge Viper. 4 more to go.”

If you know something about this or have any explanation about why this had to happen, make sure you share it with us in the commentary section.
