Spoiler: This is sadder than putting down the family dog.
What earthly reason could there be for mercilessly destroying a Dodge Viper? No explanation is given by video uploader “Shawn C.” Only the prophetic words: “we had to destroy this Dodge Viper – 4 more to go.” By now, five Vipers have probably had the same sorry ending as this blacked-out model. But why? What sorry bastard would do this? If you’re gonna kill the car, at least salvage the parts.
One explanation is that it was confiscated for street racing. In some states this is the punishment. As do prototypes and cars used by drug dealers.
