The snake is dead, long live the snake. Almost. Before heading off to the supercar graveyard in the sky Chrysler has confirmed a limited production run of 50 Viper SRT10 Final Editions, and we wouldn’t say no if someone offered. The first generation was produced in 1992, so it’s had a phenomenal run and is well on its way to becoming a classic supercar like the AC Cobra that inspired it.
There will be 20 Final Edition Coupes, 18 Roadsters and just 12 ACRs, each resplendent in Graphite Clear Coat with a black centre stripe that’s traced in red. Power is unchanged at 600hp.
Here’s Dodge’s press release:
Dodge Pulls Skin Off 2010 Viper SRT10 Final Edition Models
Auburn Hills, Mich., Apr 6, 2010 – To celebrate the final year of production for the current-generation Dodge Viper, Dodge is building a limited production run of just 50 2010 Viper SRT10 “Final Edition” models.
Available in Coupe, Roadster and ACR (American Club Racer) model configurations, each Final Edition Viper exterior features a Graphite Clear Coat body with a painted black center stripe traced in red. Viper Coupe and ACR Final Edition models include a black windshield surround. All Final Edition models carry unique side sill badges.
The black interior features custom red accent stitching, red painted halo surrounds on the gauge cluster and bright stainless steel screws in center stack bezel. A numbered dash plaque (1-50) is located on the shifter bezel just above the unique Viper Final Edition floor mats.
All Viper Final Edition Coupe and Roadster models will wear six-spoke wheels painted in Anthracite, while ACR models will come with five-spoke Sidewinder wheels in black.
The venerable 8.4-liter (510 cu. in.) V-10 engine remains the heart of the 2010 Dodge Viper SRT10. With 600 (450 kW) horsepower and 560 lb.-ft. (760 N¢m) of torque, benchmark performance numbers, (including 0-60 mph in less than 4 seconds, quarter-mile time in the mid 11-second range, 0-100-0 mph in 11 seconds flat and a top speed of 202 mph) continue to prove how the serious, race-inspired, street-legal two-seater performs without apology.
This build of 50 Final Edition 2010 Dodge Vipers includes all three model configurations for the first time – 20 Coupes, 18 Roadsters and 12 ACRs. In 2002, a total of 360 Viper Final Edition Coupes (326) and ACRs (34) were built with Viper Red Clear Coat exterior and white stripes.
Production of the 2010 Dodge Viper Final Edition models is scheduled to begin in early summer.
