FCA design chief Ralph Gilles posted photos on Instagram of the company’s last-ever Dodge Viper to roll off the production line.
The photos show two fifth-gen Vipers – a yellow ACR with black racing stripes and a car with a red exterior. The red Viper is the last-ever and will join the company’s heritage collection, while the yellow Car is headed to a customer.
Gilles also added, “It sold well over the last couple of years at a great mix of mostly ACRs in the last 15 months. It has more to do with a new ejection-mitigation regulation airbag that simply won’t fit in our package. The Gen 5 had a great five-model-year run and the Viper platform which has not changed much over the years had a great 25-year run!”
The Viper made its debut as a concept at the 1989 North American International Auto Show. The first-generation Viper hit the market in 1992 and the current fifth-generation model hit international markets in 2013.
