It is the star of its own 90s television series, and holds the current production car lap record at the Laguna Seca Raceway with a time of 1:28.65. We are of course referring to the iconic Dodge Viper, which will not only celebrate its 25th anniversary in 2016, but also its final year of production.

To commemorate this bittersweet milestone, Dodge has released six limited-edition models that highlight several of the most iconic special edition Vipers. Each limited-edition Viper model features a serialised plate located on the dashboard, featuring not just the model’s name, but can be further customised with the customer’s name as well.

The first model is the Viper 1:28 Edition ACR, which pays tribute to the record lap set by Randy Pobst in a Dodge Viper ACR at the Laguna Seca Raceway in October 2015. The car features a black exterior with red accents, an aero package, carbon ceramic brakes, and ‘1:28 Edition’ decals. The interior follows the same red theme with contrast stitching and ‘1:28 Edition’ badging. Only 28 units of the Viper 1:28 Edition ACR will be built for the 2017 model year.

Next up, is the Viper GTS-R Commemorative Edition ACR, where only 100 units will be made. The Pearl White exterior paintjob with Blue Pearl GTS stripes is a nod to the 1998 Viper GTS-R GT2 Championship Edition. Unique details here include USA flag B-pillar decals, an exterior carbon package and ‘GTS-R’ exterior sill decals.

The next two models are modelled after their original 2010 editions. The Viper VoooDoo II Edition ACR (yes, it’s spelt that way) and Viper Snakeskin Edition GTC will see just 31 and 25 units produced, respectively.

The former sports a black exterior featuring a graphite metallic driver-side stripe with red tracer outline, VoooDoo II decals and an ACR interior with silver accent stitching. The Snakeskin Edition meanwhile, gets a green paintjob with a custom snakeskin-patterned SRT stripe. Both receive an aero package but only the VoooDoo benefits from carbon ceramic brakes.

The fifth limited-edition model is simply known as the Dodge Dealer Edition ACR, available only through Dodge’s highest sales volume Viper dealers in the United States. The model gets a Viper White exterior with Competition Blue centre stripe, Adrenaline Red driver stripe, carbon brakes, an aero package and ACR interior with red accent stitching.

Unfortunately, all the five aforementioned models are now sold out due to overwhelming interest. According to Dodge, the sales spree is led by the 1:28 Edition ACR, where all 28 units were sold out in just 40 minutes. This is followed by the VoooDoo II Edition ACRs, where 31 new owners were found within two hours.

With the encouraging demand, Dodge has introduced a sixth special edition Viper called the Snakeskin Edition ACR. The model is nearly identical to the Snakeskin Edition GTC, but sees the addition of an ACR interior and carbon ceramic brakes. As many as 31 units of the Snakeskin Edition ACR will be made, six more than the Snakeskin Edition GTC.

Throughout the years, the Viper has evolved from the generation to generation. In its first, the model packed an 8.0 litre V10 engine, which grew to an 8.3 litre unit by its second generation, and 8.4 litres by the third and final one. What are your fondest memories of the Viper?
