2012 Dodge Viper to be based on Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione

Article by Christian Andrei, on September 18, 2010

A source revealed that the 2012 Dodge Viper concept looks a lot like the Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione with a Viper face. A limited-edition supercar, the Competizione had been on sale in select Maserati dealerships in North America.

What happened in 2009 was that Alfa Romeo put 84 coupes and 35 Spiders on sale in the US in seven Maserati dealerships.

However, consumers snatched up the opportunity and bought all the vehicles before they were even delivered.

The Spider version, with a $299,000 price tag, is the most expensive Alfa Romeo ever. The Viper was first launched in 1992. Production of the fourth-generation Viper ended at the Conner Avenue assembly plant in Detroit on July 1.

In introducing the 2012 Viper and the pickup truck concept, Sergio Marchionne (the CEO of Chrysler and Fiat) ended his speech to dealers with a revelation.

He said that in the more than 15 years he had served as the CEO, there were only three times that he had the opportunity to “give life to something which is so beautiful and unique, so just and equitable, that you pay a lot less attention to the numbers, to the financial reality that surrounds it.” And the 2012 Dodge Viper is one of them.
