Video: The piece-by-piece production of the Dodge Viper ACRX
It’s kind of ironic that since a video describing the production of the Dodge Viper was released a few months before the curtain closes on Dodge’s sports car.
But that’s exactly where we stand after a video featuring behind-the-scenes footage of how a Dodge Viper ACRX is built from the ground up made its rounds on the Internet today. The video describes in detail exactly how a Viper ACRX is built; from the engines, to the panels, to the chassis, to the piecing together of the whole car. What’s interesting to note is that the plant only has about 100 people doing the manual labor on the production of the Viper, meaning that everything about the car is completely hand-crafted.
Dodge CEO and President Ralph Giles even went so far as saying that the Viper ACRX, which is a limited-run model of the Viper, has been doing some test laps at Laguna Seca and has even shattered the previous lap record by over two seconds, which, incidentally, was previously held by the Viper SRT10 ACR.
We’re pretty bummed to see the end coming near for such a remarkably popular American sports car but if nostalgia does ring blue, then we’re more than happy to watch this video of how a Viper ACRX is produced in time before production of any Viper of any kind ceases completely.
