Final current-generation Dodge Viper rolls off the assembly line

Article by Christian A., on August 26, 2010

Dodge Viper was seen to roll off the assembly line last Thursday in Detroit. The buyer of the final unit, which boasts of having custom bronzed gold paint, was made according to the preferences of D'Ann Rauh, who owns over 40 Vipers with her husband. This couple is famous for owning the biggest personal collection of Vipers in the world.

The last Viper received a custom leather interior and dark graphite, five-spoke forged aluminum wheels. Viper race tracks were also airbrushed into the custom-painted copper stripes. The Viper -- a Dodge supercar -- was launched in 1992 and was a pet-project of then Chrysler executive Bob Lutz.

For two decades, the Viper has been a favored model of both racers and car enthusiasts. This year, Dodge also ended production of several specials models such as the Voodoo and ACR-X.

To bid the Viper a fitting goodbye, over 400 Viper owners and Dodge CEO Ralph Gilles went to the Conner Avenue assembly plant, dubbed the "Snake Pit," to witness it.

There were already indications that the Viper was going to end when last year, the company entered bankruptcy and it was being sold off.

Under Fiat's ownership, the supercar restarted production this year. But according to a spokeswoman, Fiat is considering creating a new generation of Vipers.
