First, we had a chance to preach if Dodge Viper will stop being produced is becausethe sales are far from profitable. Apparently, the reason they are not 100% into the background, because an internal source FCA spoke to Motor Trend reserved real reasons of the death Viper later.
In addition to the celestial had no curtain airbags, many of which mention the price of the Viper can be a bit cheaper because its not as good as NVH-European cars and less refine in some parts. Sergio Marchionne as CEO of the FCA also announced ofa new sports car to replace the Viper, but not necessarily sharing the name Viper. Claimed, the technology will be taken from the cars that already exist, such as the modular RWD architecture belongs to the Alfa Romeo Giulia and twin turbo V6 enginebelong to Maserati.
In fact, the FCA decided to discontinue production of the Viper is because it could not meet safety standards that will apply in the future. Referring to Regulation FMVSS (Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard) number 226, curtain airbags there should be in every car beginning in 2017. Well, the design of the Viper‘s cabin space was apparently not possible to install the curtain airbags because it would make an added narrow cabin.
