Pennzoil Bids Farewell To The Dodge Viper ACR In High-Speed Style

Following dwindling sales, the death of the Dodge Viper was all but inevitable. However, that doesn’t make it any less sad to see the iconic supercar disappear.

In a fitting celebration of the Viper, Pennzoil recently put together a stunning farewell clip featuring a bright yellow ACR powersliding and screaming along some of Miami’s most iconic streets.

The basic story is that the Viper in question is the last produced and was stolen from a shipping yard. The expert driver drifts it like an absolute master around the city before quietly returning it to its rightful owner. The story leaves a little to be desired but the driving and cinematography is truly mind-blowing.

A couple of months ago, Dodge announced that production of the Viper will end on August 31 and although it isn’t known how many 2017MY cars will be produced, a dealership in North Carolina ordered no less than 135 of them.

In 2015, Pennzoil released a similar clip involving the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat and at the end of the video below, hints that the next instalment will feature the new Demon.

  • Six Thousand Times

    Too bad. Dodge/Chrysler’s only (actually) good car with plenty of room for development bites the dust. Sad!

  • Denzel

    I wish the viper would have stayed but it would have either been turbo charged or dropped to a V8 which wouldn’t have been bad as long as it keeps it’s identity and keep improving its design language.
