2010 Dodge Viper Final Edition Roadster, ACR and Coupe – Click above for high-res image gallery

The current Dodge Viper that we've all come to know and love is heading to that faraway automotive graveyard in the sky. Fret not – we have it on good authority that all supercars go to heaven. To commemorate the occasion, Chrysler has announced that it will build a limited production run of 50 Viper SRT10 Final Edition models.

Dodge will build 20 Final Edition Coupes, 18 Roadsters and just 12 ACRs, each dipped in a bath of Graphite Clear Coat with a black center stripe that's outlined in red. Coupes and ACRs will also get a black windshield surround that the Roadster does without. Capping off the exterior are anthracite six-spoke wheels for the Coupe and Roadster and black Sidewinder wheels for the ACR.

Inside, each car will get side sill badges along with red accent stitching on the black surfaces, plus red painted halo surrounds on the gauge cluster and bright stainless steel screws in center stack bezel. A numbered plaque will be featured on the shifter bezel and the updates will be finished off with Viper Final Edition floor mats.

The well-known V10 powerplant goes unchanged, but with 600 horsepower and 560 pound-feet of torque it's not as if the Viper was ever lacking for power. Pricing is unknown, but Dodge says the cars will be available starting this summer. Hit the jump for the official press release.

Dodge Pulls Skin Off 2010 Viper SRT10 Final Edition Models

Auburn Hills, Mich., Apr 6, 2010 - To celebrate the final year of production for the current-generation Dodge Viper, Dodge is building a limited production run of just 50 2010 Viper SRT10 "Final Edition" models.

Available in Coupe, Roadster and ACR (American Club Racer) model configurations, each Final Edition Viper exterior features a Graphite Clear Coat body with a painted black center stripe traced in red. Viper Coupe and ACR Final Edition models include a black windshield surround. All Final Edition models carry unique side sill badges.

The black interior features custom red accent stitching, red painted halo surrounds on the gauge cluster and bright stainless steel screws in center stack bezel. A numbered dash plaque (1-50) is located on the shifter bezel just above the unique Viper Final Edition floor mats.

All Viper Final Edition Coupe and Roadster models will wear six-spoke wheels painted in Anthracite, while ACR models will come with five-spoke Sidewinder wheels in black.

The venerable 8.4-liter (510 cu. in.) V-10 engine remains the heart of the 2010 Dodge Viper SRT10. With 600 (450 kW) horsepower and 560 lb.-ft. (760 N•m) of torque, benchmark performance numbers, (including 0-60 mph in less than 4 seconds, quarter-mile time in the mid 11-second range, 0-100-0 mph in 11 seconds flat and a top speed of 202 mph) continue to prove how the serious, race-inspired, street-legal two-seater performs without apology.

This build of 50 Final Edition 2010 Dodge Vipers includes all three model configurations for the first time - 20 Coupes, 18 Roadsters and 12 ACRs. In 2002, a total of 360 Viper Final Edition Coupes (326) and ACRs (34) were built with Viper Red Clear Coat exterior and white stripes.

Production of the 2010 Dodge Viper Final Edition models is scheduled to begin in early summer.

      The Viper's final sting, with its exhaust singing as the RPM's ascend.
        • 5 Years Ago

        I based my post on the Snake's song in the musical version of "The Little Prince" as I thought it was apropos.

        "One sting and you can say goodbye to all of your friends; one sting and you'll be singing as your spirit ascends; All's well that ends."

      Drive a cop magnet and lose money, your license and end up driving a bicycle. Who needs 600 HP to go 65 Mph?

      ....all supercars go to heaven?
      Perhaps they do when they pass away, that why I say Vettes Forever!

      Those wheels are so boring. Really, final edition of the car, and that's the best they could do? A generic, 6 spoke, full face wheel. It's a shame.

      the new camaro still blows this away

      I remember seeing the Viper in a book of concept cars back when I was in the 5th grade, that was 1967. Someone was way the hell ahead of their time. We need that kind of forward thinking now in everything we do. We could be getting 150-200 mpg if the dreamers wern't crushed by big brother and big business.

      Long live the true king 1953, and beyond. The Chevy corvette.

      man this is sad

      I loved the viper

      look at all those vette fans rejoicing

      The viper needs a return
        • 5 Years Ago
        I'm a C6 Vette fan, especially love the raw Z06 which reminds me of a Ferrari F40. Light, raw, crude, immensely powerful.

        I'll miss the Viper. It acheived what the TVR always wanted, a charismatic brute/beast of a car with no aids, serious skills and blistering performance.

        I'll miss the 8.4 L all aluminum V10. There's no engine like it, the Z06's is the next best.
        I'll miss the side exhausts.
        I'll miss the ridiculously long hood.
        Finally, I'll miss the incredible aggressive looks these things hand, especially the Gen 1 and the last Gen coupes.

        Seriously, they should keep the Viper around. It sells pretty well considering the price. Instead, they should focus on the quuality.

        There are loads of high powered technological marvels (Nissan GTR, Audi RS5 etc), lots of high RPM monsters (Ferrari F430, etc) but very few American guttural sports car beasts. With the Viper gone, all thats left is the Vette. The Mustang's is creeping up and playing ball, but in the process is becoming more European and M3 like (a good thing in this case).

        As a British Indian, I feel folks in the US idolize European cars (rightly so for the general interiors), and I willl agree American car companies have given plenty of reason to do so. But seriously, diverisity is good, not everyone wants a 'hot hatch', high strung maintenance princess of tech gimmicky car. The Viper will be missed by this person. If you're gonna bring it back, keep the engine and the bonnet. Dont give it a lobotomy and badge the thing as an Alfa.

        The Viper is a legend. I plan on getting a pre-owned coupe in a year or a Z06. Sad.

        Valentino ...I was with you up until saying the Mustang is going more euro and that americans idolize european cars..Both are exactly the opposite. the Mustang has nothing euro about it from the styling to the interior to the true american engine and ride...Then no real america car person idolizes a euro car except some of the hippies who like ugly small under powered lawn mower sounding toy cars lol aWe like big hardline power beast

      WHAT A SHAME!!! The Viper is LIGHT YEARS better looking than any Corvette.
      • 5 Years Ago
      It may be back with a little help from ferrari.Enso said the only american sports car was the jeep. And no the vette is a sports car not a supercar. Lambo started the supercar concept.
