2013 SRT Viper Revealed!

2013 SRT Viper - up close and personal
Competition? When the new generation Viper is offered on the market, the list of competitors will be long. Models like the Acura NSX and the next generation Lotus Esprit come to mind as future cars that will try to give the Viper a run for its money. The new NSX is expected to go on sale as a 2014 model. All we have on the future NSX is based solely on speculations as well, but for now it is rumored to get a new V6 engine that will deliver up to 400 HP. This will be more than enough to sprint the NSX to an impressive speed of 200 mph. As for the future Lotus Esprit, it will be powered by a 5.0 liter V8 engine that delivers an impressive 620 HP and 720 NM of torque. With a weight of 1450 kilos, the new Esprit will sprint from 0 to 60 mph in 3.4 seconds and will hit a top speed of 205 mph. These may be the competitors in the Viper's category, but a true comparison can only be made once we know what the heck is going on with the 2013 Dodge Viper. *When Can I Buy?* The new generation Viper will go into production at the end of 2012 and will go on sale as a 2013 model. Pricing hasn't been discussed publicly yet, but Gilles did say that "Dodge will be able to sell a small number of Vipers in Europe" and that all Chrysler wants with the new Viper is to make it profitable, and for this "sales volume isn't important." All that tells us is that we are looking at a high price tag! Info and Video via http://www.topspeed.com

2013 SRT Viper - Handling Charateristics
UPDATE to Questions: The car won't be out until the 2013 Model year - Prices and options; best rumor: http://wot.motortrend.com/ full-2013-srt-viper-options-and-pricing-list-revealed-268769.html ----- When the last model for the previous generation Dodge Viper rolled off the assembly line, many of us took comfort in knowing that the next generation had already been confirmed for production. The new generation SRT Viper was rumored and teased for a good amount of time, building up the suspense for the new design and powerful engine. Now, it's finally here, bringing its new look and ditching the Dodge title in the process. The new SRT Viper has received an all-new, timeless exterior design with a new carbon-fiber hood, roof, decklid, and aluminum door panels. As a first, the Viper will be offered with LED taillamps that integrate stop-and-turn illumination in one element. Under the hood, the new Viper features a new 8.4-liter all-aluminum, V-10 overhead-valve engine that will deliver a total of 640 HP and 600 lb-ft of torque. The new engine will be mated to an improved Tremec TR6060 six-speed manual transmission. For the new generation, the Viper will be offered in two different versions: standard and GTS. The GTS will offer more technologically advanced solutions, like two-mode active suspension for those clients who want to enjoy it on the race track. Info and Video via http://www.topspeed.com
