In order to highlight the impressive design and manufacturing process of the world-famous Viper, Dodge recently released a documentary that captures the hand-built craftsmanship of the iconic model. The 22-minutre film, titled “Viper: DNA of a Supercar,” reveals what makes the Viper the envy of every car enthusiast around the globe.
The new Dodge Viper documentary shows every phase of the assembly and design process, from blueprint to finished product. According to Dodge, the Viper consists of over 3,700 components, made of hand-wrapped leather and carbon-fiber lightweight materials. All together, the Viper’s paint process, which is done by hand, takes over 150-plus hours. That’s the kind of attention to detail found in every Viper.
“The Dodge Viper is a precision-handcrafted machine expressively built to stimulate all the senses of an enthusiast’s soul,” said Tim Kuniskis, President and CEO of Dodge and SRT. “It’s not widely known what it takes to create this supercar, including the 140 to 160 hours to hand paint each Viper, so we produced the film to show what sets the Viper apart from everything else in its segment.”
If you’re curious about the new documentary, Dodge announced that it will be sharing it across its social media channels for fans to enjoy.
