Taking advantage of their 25th anniversary and subsequent discontinuance Dodge decided to do something very special with the last Vipers to ever be produced. Introducing the incredibly distinguished 2017 Viper Snakeskin Edition GTC, which is essentially a remake of the 2010 Snakeskin Viper ACR. The 2010 edition was limited to 31 units and keeping with the theme of their 25th anniversary, this 2017 model was limited to just 25 units!
Despite the aggressive exterior, upon getting inside the vehicle the driver finds all the creature comforts one expects from an elite car made in 2017. Some of the features include power adjustable pedals, 6-way adjustable seating, 12 speaker high-performance audio, air conditioning and a 8.4” touch sensitive navigation screen. Leather and alcantara accents are frequently used to give the driver a feeling of comfort. Driven for only 12 miles (19km) this car is the ultimate low-mileage example of this model and the interior shows absolutely no signs of wear.
Finished in a pristine and signatory Snakeskin Green with snakeskin pattern SRT stripe this car pays a beautiful tribute to the 2010 Snakeskin edition while pushing the brand forward with ferocity. With a loud, wild and never understated body styling the 2017 Dodge Viper defines the true American sports car. A legend among legends, and this iconic model will continue to intrigue and inspire for generations to come.
All of the wild exterior charisma is backed up in a serious way under the hood. The massive 8.4L V10 kicks out 645hp and is capable of 0-60mph in 3.3 seconds with a top speed of 206mph. In a world of PDK double clutches, flappy paddle F1 gear boxes and intelligent steering systems, the Viper gives the driver a refreshing old-school taste. All of the power and performance is fed to the rear wheels through a 6 speed manual gearbox that is as tight and responsive as anything else on the market today. With only 12 miles (19km) on the odometer the car performs as brand new and has no mechanical issues whatsoever. The Viper also meets Department of Transportation EPA regulations (OBD II).
Now that Viper has ceased production one can look back on the Snakeskin Edition GTC as a fitting send off to one of the most fearsome American cars ever built. Ending its 25 year production run with this reptilian rocket ship certainly seems to be a dynamic finish to a compelling evolution lasting two and half decades. The Viper will certainly go down in history as a Mopar flagship and this limited edition 2017 Snakeskin Edition GTC will undoubtably become a highly sought after collector car.
