Gary Wood Dodge of Salisbury, North Carolina has just placed an order for 140 2017 Dodge Vipers, a figure that they say represents nearly 99% of 2017 Viper allocation.
As you probably already know, 2017 will be the final model year for the Dodge Viper. The automaker already released a series of special edition cars to send it off, which promptly sold out, but customers and dealers are free to order standard Vipers as they please.
In an emailed statement to Jalopnik, Gerry Wood Dodge said that they “just saw that the orders were not being filled and the plant is closing down, so we wanted to make sure all these cars were produced.” Oh, and despite experts’ predictions that Viper values are going sky rocket following its departure, the dealer says they aren’t going to mark up the cars beyond MSRP and aren’t cornering the market.
Gerry Wood Dodge had a little fun ordering their Vipers and created their own “special editions. They include the Viper ACR ‘Solid’, which is a run of 17 Viper ACRs each in a different solid body color and the ACR ‘Advanced Aero Solid’, a run of 14 ACRs with the Extreme Aero kit presented in different solid body colors. Another 6 ‘Black Stripe’ cars were built and include a black on gold color combo with the TA 2.0 aero kit.
Due to the unique circumstances surrounding 2017 Viper allocation, the dealer is offering buyers a 2017 Viper VIP purchase experience that includes pickup at the Charlotte Greensboro or Rowan County Airports, a free track day weekend and 10% of all OEM Viper parts. They are also offering nationwide and local delivery services.
