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.

Where’s the video? Its not working anymore, now I need to browsed it in YouTube. While watching the video it reminds me on how great is this car. Well, I hope they will make a newer version for this car.

I really loved watching on how the car was built from the scratch. And yeah I think it sounds so sarcastic while they released this video before the killing of its production.

Yah know, it has been quite a while since I have heard of any fuzz from Dodge and specially the Viper brand. I kinda wonder on what ever happened to that wonderful race car.
