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.

    an awesome car. nice that it went out at its peek development.

  • 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.

  • SomeRandomCommenter

    This will always be one of my favorite cars

  • Belthronding Tinuviel

    after some time, i think it ll be coming back.

  • R55

    And it will be back again like the last 2,3,4 times they cancelled production

    No Viper, potentially no 370z. Sexy sports cars are dying away!

  • sad it’s going away. Very well filmed. A lot of movies don’t do a job as good as that.
