2013 SRT Viper Officially Breaks Cover

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.

    Borrowing heavily from the Corvette’s styling cues…:(

    Not much change.  Looking more like a vette with an Alpha Romeo grille.

    The interior looks a lot better and the whole car looks like it fits better together.  Better build quality.

    Awesome! Not feeling the headlight LED’s/rear taillights however. It’s “bling” the Viper didn’t need. It’s like someone went “DUB” on it. Whoever buys one of these is sure going to have a lot of fun, if you can get your heart to slow down long enough to breath. Thanks for keeping it alive!
    I can’t wait for the poster.
