Plant for the production of Dodge Viper will be transformed into a storage of carsMarch 22, 2018
The company Fiat Chrysler Automobiles decided to remake the plant, where until August 31, 2017 the supercar Dodge Viper was manufactured, in the storage for its rare cars and concept cars. The site will be renamed from Conner Avenue Assembly Plant in Conner Center.
The plant was built in 1966, and its area is just over 37,000 square meters. Now it will be used to store approximately 400 concept cars and rare cars that used to be in different places.
In the collection there is, for example, Rambler 1902 and Chrysler Touring 1924th. It is expected that the plant will be completely redesigned in the second quarter of 2018. It is not excluded that it will be made open to the public.
Together with this, the FCA decided to put up for auction items found during the dismantling of office premises of the enterprise: booklets, posters, notebooks and so on. In total, more than 1800 lots will be left for bids. The auction started on March 21 and will last until April 13.
The fact that Dodge will abandon the supercar Viper, it became known in 2016. The reason for this was the new security requirements that prescribe to equip cars in the US with side curtain airbags, but the Viper design will not allow this.
