End Clap for the Dodge Viper

End Clap for the Dodge ViperA few days before the closing of the American production site scheduled for August 31, the last Dodge Viper is out of the assembly lines of Conner Avenue in Detroit.

The shutdown of the American muscle car production is no surprise, as it was announced by Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) last July, one year after its 25th anniversary.

Visibly moved by the end of the production of this brand’s standard bearer for 25 years, Ralph Gilles has even clarified that it is not tomorrow the day before that the Viper will disappear from the traffic. Indeed, as it is very rarely the main vehicle of its owner, the Viper accumulate little mileage and are rather well preserved. The proof is that it is not uncommon to see a Viper more than 20 years old which still looks like a new one.

The 5th generation Viper was in its fifth year and yet it had not taken a single ride. Ralph Gilles claims that the sales figures are not related to the end of the model. Rather, it would be the new airbag regulations that would have been virtually impossible to integrate into the Viper as it was. In the current state of FCA, developing a new Viper was not part of the plans.
