National Geographic takes a unique insider’s look at the Viper factory in the current model’s last year of production. This ultimate factory is comprised of craftspeople who spend two and a half days building each Viper, which is packed with 600 horsepower that can take it from zero to 60 mph in under four seconds. Without any robots on this assembly line, every Viper is truly hand-crafted. Priced at half of the cost of Ferraris and Lamborghinis, only 26,000 Vipers have hit the road in 18 years.
