Dodge Sends Off Viper With Five 25th Ann Limited Editions

Aside from the Viper turning 25, this also happens to be its final year of production, making Dodge’s announcement somewhat bittersweet.

The limited-edition models come with exclusive content to commemorate the final year of production, as well as a serialized instrument panel badge that can also be customized with the client’s name.

Order books open on June 24th as Viper fans and enthusiasts with sufficient funds will be able to order their very own special snake in one of five special edition configurations.

In no particular order, we’ll start with the Viper 1:28 Edition ACR which pays tribute to the current model’s single lap record at Laguna Seca. It was set back in October 2015 by Randy Pobst, behind the wheel of a 2016 Viper ACR. In terms of looks, it features a black exterior with red ACR stripes, carbon ceramic brakes, 1:28 Edition sill decals and red ACR accent stitching inside the cabin.

Dodge will be building 28 units under this configuration for the 2017 model year.

Next up is the Viper GTS-R Commemorative Edition ACR, which pays tribute to an iconic Viper paint scheme instead of a lap record. The paint scheme in question is the same white & blue combo found on the 1998 Viper GTS-R GT2 Championship Edition. It’s made out of a Pearl White exterior with Blue Pearl GTS stripes, the same extreme aero package as 1:28 Edition, same red interior stitching and same carbon ceramic brakes, but adds the Exterior Carbon Package, unique red Stryker badge decal, USA flag B-pillar decals and GTS-R exterior sill decals. No fewer than 100 units will be built.

The Viper VoooDoo II Edition ACR (yes five ‘O’s’ in total) is modeled after the original 2010 VooDoo Edition car and comes with a predominantly black exterior, a graphite metallic ACR driver’s stripe with red tracer outline, extreme aero pack & carbon ceramic brakes, VoooDoo II exterior sill decals, silver accent stitching for the interior and custom badging. Since Dodge built 31 units of the original and properly-spelled 2010 VooDoo Viper ACR, they’ll be producing the same 31 units for 2017.

If you’ve already glanced at the images, this next special edition model is called the Viper Snakeskin Edition GTC and it’s the green non-ACR one. The color was inspired by the original 2010 Snakeskin version, while other features include the custom snakeskin patterned SRT stripe, the Advanced Aero Pack, GT black interior and serialized instrument panel badge. Only 25 units will be build for this particular configuration.

Last but not least is the Dodge Dealer Edition ACR, available exclusively through Dodge’s highest sales volume Viper dealers, Tomball Dodge of Tomball, Texas and Roanoke Dodge of Roanoke, Ill.

It’s white with a Competition Blue center stripe, Adrenaline Red driver stripe, carbon ceramic brakes, extreme aero pack, red accent stitching for the interior and a custom car cover that matches the exterior paint scheme while showcasing the customer’s name above the driver’s side door. By the way, such a custom cover is available on all five special edition models. In total, Dodge will be building 33 units of this new special edition configuration.

Dodge also announced that their exclusive Viper “1 of 1” customization program will continue for the 2017 model year – this way customers will still be able to create their unique “Snake” from the ground up.
