2015 Dodge Viper GT: I Found Another Easter Egg
by Travis Langness, Automotive Editor on June 17, 2016
OK, so I didn't find an easter egg in the Viper, my passenger did. We've had our long-term 2015 Dodge Viper for 11 months now and somehow I've missed this little detail the entire time. While we were riding along, my passenger said "Hey, what's this." I knew what it was as soon as I looked at it. Can you guess?
It's an outline of the Nürburgring in Germany and it's located in the passenger door handle of the Viper. It's probably there to pay homage to the production-car records that the Viper has set there over time.
Apparently, Dodge is proud enough of those records to put a bit of a tribute inside the car. It's a detail that I certainly didn't expect to spot this far into our test of the Viper and it reminds you that this car was designed for track use, not the kind of soul-crushing commutes it's been dealing with lately.
