Stealing the 2012 New York Auto Show – 2013 SRT Viper
The show stopper at the New York Auto Show might come as a surprise to some, the 2013 SRT Viper. Why is it turning so many heads? Well… 640 horsepower and 600 pound-feet of torque might be a pretty good reason. Maybe the beautiful 8.4-liter V10 under the hood supported by a cross bar? What’s more impressive than that? It gets all that power without a turbocharger or supercharger…………. it leaves me type-less…………
This sexy snake comes in two styles, the SRT Viper and the Viper GTS… explained (with lack of detail, from the official press-release)
“The SRT Viper model is meant to offer a perfect blend of extreme performance and a deliberate preservation of what has become the iconic DNA of the Viper,” Gilles added. “We strove to deliver a supercar that continues to bring the driver as close as possible to the machine.”
The SRT Viper GTS builds on the DNA of the SRT Viper model with more technologically advanced solutions, like two-mode active suspension, to allow this world-class GTS to find new limits on the track while also opening up its envelope as a more premium and mature evolution of the classic, extreme performance formula. Designed and built with premium features and materials inside and out, the Viper GTS will compete with the best performance vehicles in the world with a wide range of creature comforts, advanced drivetrain and interior technologies.
To elaborate a bit, the GTS will have a driver selectable two-mode suspension system, with Bilstein DampTronic Select shock absorbers. The interior also features fully leather skinned, and standard accent colors are applied to the seats, doors, center console and stitching. It pounds with The Harman Kardon system with exclusive Logic 7 surround-sound processing and split six-spoke forged-aluminum “Venom” wheel design with three available finishes.
Yeah, definitely drool-worthy. Start flooding your room by watching the reveal video and demonstration below:
