Dodge is laying to rest the Viper. The end will come in 2017, but it won't be going gently, five special editions are being offered.

Details of four have been released.
Based on the production-spec ACR, the 1:28 Edition is designed to celebrate the car which achieved a production lap record around Laguna Seca.

Mechanically the special edition is standard, although carbon ceramic brakes and the extreme aero package have been added. No more than 28 examples will be built.
The Viper GTS-R GT2 Championship Edition draws heavily on the 1998 GTS-R for inspiration. A pearl white paint job with blue pearl stripes complete with a red Stryker emblem on the hood marks the GTS-R GT2.
Just 100 examples will be built.
VooDoo II Edition ACR. The VooDoo II will be finished in black paint and metallic stripe, while the interior will be reworked to include silver accent stitching and a uniquely numbered instrument panel.

21 examples will be produced.
Snakeskin Edition GTC. Just 25 examples will be built.

These four cars, along with another special edition, will be produced for 2017. All are powered by the same 8.4-liter V10 as the standard cars. No pricing details have been released.

Base price for the 2016 Dodge Viper is $90,390. The ACR being what it is pushes that to $122,490.
