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.
