Dodge Viper production idled again for two weeks

Article by Christian A., on July 8, 2014

It seems that the Dodge Viper is not quite the most popular sports car in the United States as Chrysler idled production once again at Corner Avenue. For those who don’t know, this comes after the production resumed on June 23rd.

According to our friends from Autoblog, the Dodge Viper production will resume on July 21st, at the earliest. The 2014 Dodge Viper a.k.a. SRT Viper starts at $102,485 excluding destination, sales tax, title and registration fees.

Each Dodge Viper is powered by an 8.4-liter all-aluminum V10 engine that delivers 640 hp and 600 lb-ft (814 Nm) of torque.

Until last week, the Viper was the most powerful model found on the Dodge lineup, but now things are changed as the 2015 Challenger powered by its all-new 6.2-liter HEMI Hellcat V8 engine was rated at an impressive 707 hp and 650 lb-ft (881 Nm) of torque.

Although we like the design of the Dodge Viper we don’t believe that the sales will improve. According to company’s 5-year business plan, the facelifted Dodge Viper will arrive in the half of 2015. Honestly, we wouldn’t be surprised if the Dodge Viper will be axed, but until now there is nothing official.
