Snakeskin ACR Edition: THIS Is the Final Dodge Viper Special Edition

2017 Dodge Viper Snakeskin GTC edition

If you thought the passel of special-edition Vipers announced last month as part of the Viper’s going-away party were it, the end of the road for the Viper, the snake’s swan song, guess what? They weren’t! While all 206 of those cars are sold out, Dodge is slipping one more special-edition Viper in before the sports car is officially killed, and it’s based off of the hardcore ACR model. There also is a GTC-based Snakeskin—it was among the models already sold out—and it’s pictured above.

2010 Dodge Viper Snakeskin ACR edition



The rather appropriately named Viper Snakeskin ACR edition is, mercifully, free of any actual snake skin, but it does boast “snakeskin-patterned” stripes and a “Snakeskin Green” paint color. Dodge also throws in the ACR package, the Extreme Aero package, carbon-ceramic brakes, a serialized plaque for the dashboard, and a matching green car cover. Spiritually, it channels the same vibe as the special-edition Viper of the same name sold in 2010. Perhaps in acknowledgment of the Viper’s slow sales—the nail in the model’s coffin, really—Dodge says it will build “as many as” 31 Snakeskin ACRs for 2017, and it will begin taking orders later this month.
