Dodge has announced it will build just 50 “Final Edition” Vipers to celebrate the iconic super sports car during its last year in production. Of that 50, 20 will be Coupes, 18 Roadsters and just 12 wicked ACRs. Each car will feature a Graphite Clear Coat body with black center stripe outlined in red. Special six-spoke wheel will also be included, while ACR models will get five-spoke wheels. Both Coupe and ACR models will get a black windshield surround and all models will get unique badging. Inside, black leather interiors will get red stitching and red surrounds for the gauge cluster, as well as stainless steel screws in the center stack and Viper Final Edition floor mats. A numbered dash plaque will also come on every limited edition car, located on the shifter bezel.

All cars will come with Dodge’s 8.4-liter V10 engine with 600-hp and 560 ft-lbs of torque, enabling a sub- 4-second 0-60 mph time and a top seed of 202 mph.

Back in 2002, Dodge did produce a Final Edition Viper, so perhaps there’s still hope the Fiat/Chrysler alliance will result in an all-new Viper in the years to come.

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.
