The end of Dodge Viper production in August won't affect VLF Automotive's plans for the Force 1 V10 supercar, which shares its underpinnings.
Henrik Fisker, a partner and head of design at the boutique car company, said VLF has access to enough Vipers through a partnership with race car driver Ben Keating, owner of a Viper specialty dealership in Texas, to complete orders for the low-volume vehicle.
"We have more than enough donor cars to be able to do the Force 1," Fisker told Automotive News. "He bought them early on for this project."
VLF plans to produce no more than 50 of the $268,500 cars, and recently started delivering cars to customers, according to Fisker.
"These are hand-built specialty cars for collectors," he said.
