Dodge Gives One Last Chance to Order a Viper

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles will reopen ordering for the last production year of the Dodge Viper. Viper ordering was closed Oct. 7 and ordering of the track beast ACR model closed September 27. Tim Kuniskis, head of Fiat Chrysler-North America passenger-car brands, said “We actually had to shut down the ordering because we outran our headlights,” he told The Detroit News this month on the sidelines of the Los Angeles Auto Show. “We didn’t know if we were going to have enough parts to build all the cars that people ordered.”

Dodge is also having a tough time fulfilling orders for the track focused ACR model. The company also has experienced a shortage of its custom-built carbon-fiber “extreme aero wings” for it’s halo car. “The demand for ACR is off the charts — way more than we ever expected,” Kuniskis said. “We are close to opening it back up now that we know how many more we can build.

Since Dodge announced they were doing away with the Viper, the sales have rocketed as most specialty vehicles on their way out tend to do. Dodge is giving you one last shot to take home one of their most famed icons, so if you are looking to get one, you better get your order in as fast as you can before you get bumped off the list.
