VLF, the boutique automaker specializing in turning production cars into more powerful, unique creations, says Dodge Viper’s end of production will not affect the production of the VLF Force 1 supercar.
Automotive News reports VLF has secured enough Dodge Viper donor cars to underpin the V10-powered supercar from VLF. Despite having distinct styling and body panels, the VLF Force 1 is a Viper down to the bones. The donor cars will continue to come from Ben Keating, who owns a Viper specialty dealership in Texas.
“We have more than enough donor cars to be able to do the VLF Force 1,” Fisker told Automotive News. “He bought them early on for this project.”
When all is said and done, VLF will have built just 50 examples of the VLF Force 1. Each comes with a $268,500 price tag.
“These are hand-built specialty cars for collectors,” Fisker added.
With 745 horsepower on tap, and the ability to reach a top speed of 218 mph, it certainly is a specialty car. And it may be one of buyers’ last shots at owning a Dodge Viper in some form. The Viper will exit production on August 31, 2017, and Fiat-Chrysler Automobiles will close its Connor Avenue assembly plant.
