Modernity and classic beauty converge in the new 2013 SRT Viper. This edition of the Viper comes with several changes which enhance the overall driving experience. With a more aggressive racecar look, the Viper maintains the classic ‘gill’ shape as a primary feature on the side. The evolved viper form also features a longer roofline tapering towards the rear with broader shoulders on the fenders.

A new V-10 engine producing 640hp awaits your every command. A 12.5 percent reduction in the shift throws and a 3.55 to 1 ratio on the final drive gear have greatly improved the performance.  Better handling with a new, lighter and stiffer space-frame structure, stability control – a first on any Viper – allows complete control of the Vehicle Dynamic Control and Dynamic Traction Control systems, and performance coil springs that combine with aluminium Bilstein dampers to complete the “race-inspired” suspension system all make this one highly desirable representation of an iconic American muscle car.

In short, expect to see one of these in the garage of Jay Leno as soon as it is released.
