Glamorous Manhattan was the setting today for the first public showing of the 2013 SRT Viper at the New York International Auto Show. The latest Viper represents the fifth generation of the muscular, distinctly American sports car.
After a gut-wrenching period of uncertainty, the Street and Racing Technology brand team is extremely proud that our hand-built in Detroit, flagship supercar is back and ready to take on the performance car world, said Ralph Gilles, President and CEO, Street and Racing Technology Brand and Motorsports, Chrysler Group LLC. Beyond being the flagship for the new SRT brand, the launch of the 2013 Viper proves that we simply would not let the performance icon of the Chrysler Group die.”
The 2013 SRT Viper ups the ante over previous models with an all-new aluminum and carbon-fiber skin, a revamped 8.4L, all-aluminum V10 that produces 640 hp and 600 lb-ft of torque, and an advanced, redesigned interior. Two versions are offered: SRT Viper and SRT Viper GTS. The GTS offers premium features including two-mode suspension.
