Autotrader Find: New 2015 Dodge Viper

Occasionally, I enjoy searching Autotrader for “new” cars that are a few years old — cars that have sat unsold in dealership inventories, or cars that dealerships are holding onto, thinking they might appreciate in value. This is one of my favorite finds yet: a 2015 Dodge Viper that you can still buy new.

This is noteworthy in large part because the Viper is now long out of production: 2017 was its final model year, which means most “new” Viper models are long sold. That means anyone who still wants a “new” version of one of the most thrilling sports cars ever made is out of luck — except, well, they aren’t, thanks to this brand-new 2015 Viper.

This particular Viper is offered by Columbiana Chrysler Jeep Dodge in Columbiana, Ohio, near Youngstown, and the asking price is the MSRP of $126,285. It’s not explained why this Viper is still available almost three and a half years after it was originally shipped to the dealer, but, indeed, it is, and the Carfax report confirms it: It arrived at the dealership in April 2015, was never titled and is now offered for sale.

The odometer, however, may give a little indication as to why it never sold: It currently shows 830 miles, perhaps suggesting a dealership employee (or, more likely, the owner) has been driving the car around here and there for the last few years. While some will suggest a car with 830 miles can’t possibly be “new,” the fact that it’s never been titled means you could still be the first owner — and given the Viper’s uncertain future, it may be the last chance you’ll get.

  1. There are still many Viper’s left, including ACR’s. Automatic addicts don’t realize that adding a Hellcat transmission to a Viper jacks up the weight by 200 lbs. to 3497. That’s heavier than any Viper ever weighed and totally defeats the purpose. Man up and drive a manual like other Viper drivers. 

  2. I’ll get some downvotes for this but they should’ve made an auto when this gen came out and it might still be alive today. GM got the memo and amazingly the ZL1, ZR1 and ZO6 have one available. Ford is another hold out on the GT350 but I’d probably bet the GT500 has one at least available. 

  3. Am I the only one who just noticed that’s the 2006 Viper and the Dodge Stratus coupe have almost the exact same headlights?
