Stopped Production of Dodge Viper Won’t Have an Effect on VLF Force 1 V10
,The production of the Dodge Viper will be ending by the end of August. Due to new safety regulations coming into effect from September 1, the production of the two-seater Dodge Viper will be shut down on August 31 by the Fiat Chrysler Automobiles.
However, the plans to shut down Dodge Viper’s production will not affect the VLF Automotive’s Force 1 V10 Supercar that shares its underpinnings.
According to Henrik Fisker, head of design and a partner at the VLF Automotive, VLF has a partnership with the race car driver Ben Keating. The partnership enables access to enough Vipers to VLF as Ben Keating owns a Viper specialty dealership in Texas. This partnership will likely help the company, complete orders for the low-volume Viper.
Apparently, there are more than enough donor cars for the Force 1.
There will only be 50 cars produced by the VLF with a price tag of $268,500. The delivery of the car has already started. The automaker takes time to produce the car owning to its hand built production that is normally a car for collectors.
The Force 1 made its debut at the 2016 Detroit Auto Show and features an 8.4-liter V10 engine that produces 745 Horsepower. The car has a carbon fiber body, thin headlights, 21 inch wheels, and rear-wing spoiler along with a long hood. The car goes to a maximum speed of 322 km/h and can go from 0-100 kmph in 3.1 seconds.
Additionally, the top end model of the VLF Force 1 V10 Roadster was unveiled this year at the 2017 Shanghai Motor Show.
