For some enthusiasts, 2010 marked the end of an era for the Viper. It was, after all, the last year that Dodge gave their namesake to the performance street car and in turn, offered up some special edition cars to commemorate the occasion. One of these was rare the ACR Snakeskin Edition. With just 30 of them made, these Vipers are a rare site to see but collectors could get their once in a lifetime chance to purchase one of these rare snakes at the Monterey, California Mecum Auction next month.
For the 2010 model year, Dodge offered several different special edition packages for the Viper, including the “Final Edition Group” package and the 1.33, VooDoo and ACR Snakeskin editions. Each special option came with its list of perks, but the Snakeskin Edition took it to the extreme when it came to unique aesthetics.
In order to get a Snakeskin Edition car, you first had to order a Viper SRT10 with the $14,550 “Quick Order Package 21B,” which came with forged Sidewinder Wheels, 30-inch Z-rated tires, ACR badging, sport suspension, a front fascia with ground effects, front spoiler, and a rear spoiler.
To make it a Snakeskin Edition, an option that cost an additional $2,800, the car was painted a unique “Snakeskin Green,” given a black interior with black center and ACR drivers stripe across the hood to match, specialty green accented gauges, steering wheel and floor mats, as well as a collector numbers plate.
Just 30 of these Snakeskin Vipers were made and this one is #27. With the Viper’s signature 600hp 8.4L V10, 6-speed manual transmission, highly collectable status and just 2,300 miles on the odometer, this rare reptile is sure to turn heads and wallets when it hits the Mecum stage on Saturday, August 16th at 12:25p.m.
