2015 Dodge Viper GT: Found an Easter Egg

by Mark Takahashi, Automotive Editor on April 26, 2016

2015 Dodge Viper GT

I was transporting a bottle of wine one night. Rather than let it roll around on the passenger seat, I crammed it into one of the cupholders behind my elbow. When I arrived at the dinner location, I grabbed the wine and out came the cupholder tray attached to the heel of the bottle. And there it was, a subtle nod to the company's founders.

The company was originally called the Dodge Brothers for John and Horace Dodge. A recent ad campaign also paid homage to the brothers. This embossed panel uses a simplified version of the original logo that featured an interlocking six-point star.

Kurt Niebuhr found this Easter egg in a previous Viper that rolled through here, so I'll credit him with the original discovery. Personally, I like heritage stuff like this when it's not so prominently displayed. Our Jeep Renegade also has some subtle and obvious touches.
