The current edition of the Dodge Viper SRT has been named in the US as the car that you want to buy and hang on to.
The Viper, which isn’t available in Australia, has just been named this year’s “Collectible Vehicle of the Future” by the National Automotive History Collection (NHSC) in Detroit, in the US.
The recognition comes after the hand-built Dodge sports car was also given the accolade in 2003, 2007 and in 2013.
Powered by an all-aluminium 8.4-liter mid-front V10 engine, the 2015 Dodge Viper SRT delivers 645 horsepower (480kW) and 600 lb.-ft. of torque (813Nm) – the most torque of any naturally aspirated sports-car engine in the world.
Adding to the collectability of the Dodge Viper this year is that the model is about to go out of production.
Fiat Chrysler has announced it will stop making the model soon and a series of special edition Vipers released for 2017 have already been sold out.
