Default Fourth Viper prototype & 93 other Vipers to be crushed

Sad, hopefully the prototype will be given to a local auto museum rather than crushing it, but that's not likely to happen. All it takes is one or two people breaking the rules (two were used on the road and involved in accidents) to spoil it for everyone.........again very sad.

Fourth Viper prototype & 93 other Vipers to be crushed

March 6th, 2014
by David Zatz


The fourth Dodge Viper prototype ever built will be destroyed within the next two weeks, according to an article in The Olympian.

The car, valued at $250,000, was assigned to South Puget Sound Community College years ago, but on the condition that it be destroyed if Chrysler required it. The newspaper quoted faculty member Norm Chapman as saying that all 93 Vipers given away for educational purposes are to be destroyed, because two were used on the road and involved in accidents which cost Chrysler millions of dollars.

Many car companies donate vehicles that cannot be sold to schools for student training; South Puget Sound Community College has around twenty of them in its shop.

The 1992 Dodge Viper is a pre-production car, not legal for street use, with no speed limiter and no emissions controls. It has a one of a kind hard top, which did not enter production until 1996. The car is still owned by Chrysler, as is customary in this type of arrangement.

this is a very sad situation indeed ,looks like since the factory retains ownership they would take the 92 and at least put it in a museum .
