Dodge builds 25,000th Viper
The Viper, which is produced at the Conner Avenue Assembly Plant, has been one of Chrysler's most iconic sports cars since its launch in 1991 when the car was first produced by Chrysler as a modern take on the classic American muscle car. Over the years a number of variants have been spawned including the most recent Viper SRT-10 ACR track special.
The ultimate Viper churns out 600hp from its 8.4L engine and is capable of completing the quarter mile in 11.6 seconds and reaching a top speed of 200mph.
While 25,000 is an impressive figure for Chrysler, officials should be feeling a little worried at the moment because the Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 is likely to topple the Viper as America’s muscle car king thanks to its more powerful 620hp supercharged V8.
