    Unhappy Dodge to sell Viper Brand

    I'm not a happy bunny after reading this especially as a "Tuner" could be buying it. Its one of Dodges most iconic vehicles of recent times and to sell it, well I can't work it out myself.



    Dodge to begin negotiations to sell Viper brand shortly

    While most of us would be more than happy to own just one Viper, some lucky company will soon take the entire operation off the hands of Chrysler, LLC. We hear there are multiple interested parties, and according to Vice Chairman Tom Lasorda, Chrysler is looking to begin real negotiations within the next few weeks. It's hard to imagine a Viper coming from a manufacturer other than Dodge, but there has been talk that the iconic American sportscar could be gobbled up by a well-known tuning firm, or even a group of investors. Whatever happens, we just hope that the Viper -- as a car or as a brand -- continues showing its formidable fangs and doesn't end up a mere shed skin of its former self. You can check out our First Drive of the Viper ACR or our In the Autoblog Garage review of the Viper SRT-10 to see just what we think about Dodge's supercar.

    I'm not a great fan of vipers but if it gets sold to a tuneing company it will be ruiened, hopfully some investors will come and just put a bigger engine in it.

    Not really, it's always the exact same. Chevrolet release a new Corvette - 2 weeks later, a new Viper comes out and owns it in every way. It always happens.

    I'm not too happy about this either since i'm a HUGE Viper fan, but the only reason i'm calm is because the "well known tuning firm" that might buy it COULD be Hennessey...

    I didn't think about that, that would be the only exception to them selling the brand, but still wont be to happy

    Saleen and Roush were the hinted at tuners as shown by the link in the article above. I'd be surprised if Hennessey would be allowed near it with a bargepole though after his history.
    I'm a bit mental.

    Balto its not dodge doing the sale, its the owner of dodge, chrysler. Also The chrysler name is the only other manufacturer to bear the viper name.
