2013 SRT Viper Returns
The SRT Viper makes its highly anticipated return with two new models of the iconic supercar. Hand-built in Detroit, the SRT Viper and the SRT Viper GTS models are powered by an 8.4-liter, mid-front V-10 overhead-valve engine, which delivers 640 horsepower , 600 lb.-ft. of torque and reaches a top speed of 206 miles per hour. The GTS model adds driver-selectable, two-mode suspension system for street and track use.
“The SRT Viper model offers a perfect blend of extreme performance and a deliberate preservation of what has become the iconic DNA of the Viper,” said Ralph Gilles, President and CEO – Street and Racing Technology Brand and Motorsports, Chrysler Group LLC. “We strove to deliver a supercar that continues to bring the driver as close as possible to the machine.”
Major upgrades include the addition of a new aluminum x-brace under the hood that ties the suspension pickup points to the magnesium cowl super casting, creating a stiffer structure that provides 50 percent more torsional rigidity.
High tech features include a 7-inch, full-color, customizable instrument cluster which provides statistics and feedback to the driver, including 0-to-60 mph; 0-to-100 mph; eighth- and quarter-mile elapsed times; braking distance; instant g-force measurement readouts and top-speed performance.
Manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP) for the 2013 SRT Viper model is $97,395 (excluding $1,995 destination), while MSRP for the 2013 SRT Viper GTS model is $120,395 (excluding $1,995 destination).
