The 2017 dodge viper for sale again has been one of the biggest news in the automotive industry this week. The American company will restart taking orders for its high-performance model to satisfy demand from collectors.

The 2017 dodge viper for sale has been one of the most longed wish of fans and collectors. Nothing had ever replaced the viper with its iconic look and awesome performance. Even Tim Kuniskis, head of Fiat Chrysler-North America passenger-car brands has been overwhelmed by the demand and believes that if they manufactured vipers again, it will quickly sell out. Will this be the last time one can finally order a viper? Or is this the sign of a possible rebirth?

The death of the third - generation Viper had been a messy one. It was stopped after the Great Recession of 2008 and it was not until Fiat had already joined the Chrysler Group that production has been resumed. The dodge viper then beat the new C7 Corvette and other muscle cars in sales - a feat expected to be achieved by the 2017 Dodge Viper for sale today - and since then the model has enjoyed numerous versions and special editions, numerous customization options, and a considerable drop in prices to encourage sales.

The upcoming years were not that good as in 2015, the FCA Group only delivered 200 copies counting all available versions. In 2016 sales have increased to 447 units so far, but it is not enough to justify its expensive production. Since it is assembled exclusively by a small staff, a factory dedicated exclusively to this model. So the 2017 dodge viper for sale has been stopped and the death of the viper has been announced.

The last batch to leave Conner Avenue has been purchased almost entirely by a single dealer , Gerry Wood Dodge Salisbury, which aims to corner the market recent examples, which will surely attract numerous nostalgic fans and collectors, under the threat that there will be no more Viper. Luckily, it has been confirmed that the brand will accept orders again for the dodge viper.

No one knows exactly why the 2017 dodge viper for sale has been stopped. Some theories suggest that the absence of automatic transmission option was a burden too big for a model that only was marketed in North America, the fire-breathing Viper has resisted the sports car market’s shift towards dual-clutch automatic transmissions and smaller, turbocharged engines according to DigitalTrends and this cause its dismissed. While others point to the overwhelming success of the Corvette C7 since its launch in 2013 is the reason. We are just happy that fans will get the chance to order it again.

There’s no information about how many Vipers will be assembled and the price is also still unknown. However, if you want one, our advice is to get in line as soon as possible.
