At the 2012 New York International Auto Show, many vehicles boasted revolutionary MPGs and heightened environmental consideration, but only one turned the focus to its 640 horsepower and 600 pound-feet of torque. That was the 2013 SRT Viper, which showcased many other improvements to match the bulks in power.
The Viper isn’t under the Dodge name anymore. Instead, its namesake is of Street & Racing Technology (SRT), which is a high-performance auto group under Chrysler and the team which has historically been responsible for working on new Viper projects.
SRT has continued a commitment to improving the Viper, and the impressive horsepower and torque are improvements to the last Viper which sported 600 ponies and 560 torque. Other improvements include weight reduction, stability and traction control, and an interior makeover to improve space and materials.
Despite the improvements, SRT has stayed loyal to the look and feel of the machine, no doubt pleasing to die-hard viper fans. If they want to enjoy the improvements found in the 2013 SRT Viper, they’ll have to shell out around $100k according to Car and Driver.
