Hilton Head Island Concours d'Elegance & Motoring Festival - For 25 years, the Dodge Viper was the ultimate in American super cars. True to its race car design, it won IMSA and FIA international endurance events in its production configuration. It had its own television series, NBC's Viper, from 1994 to 1999, and in 2016 was selected as Esquire’s Car of the Year. A quarter-century after the first Vipers rolled out of the showroom in 1992, production and some 32,000 vehicles, the Viper officially came to an end. The Hilton Head Island Concours d’Elegance & Motoring Festival will celebrate the end of that era with a special Viper display at this year’s event to include a special panel discussion from the team behind the Viper.

As part of the celebration, the Festival is hosting a special seminar during its Car Club Showcase, Saturday, November 2.

And a limited edition, autographed Viper Heritage poster will be sold to benefit the Concours' charitable fund, Driving Young America, during the seminar.
