2013 SRT Viper is Still Mean, Now Beautiful Too: 2012 NY Auto Show
If there's one car that we've been looking forward to seeing at this year's New York Auto Show, more than any other, it's the next generation Viper. Very nearly sold off during Chrysler's turbulent years under Cerberus, like any great icon, it managed to endure.
Not only that, but even before the last fourth generation SRT 10 examples were rolling out the door, a plan was underway to introduce a new one; an American super car re-imagined for the 21st century. Now it's been revealed to the world for the first time.
Ralph Gilles, President and CEO of Chrysler's Street and Racing Technology Brand perhaps summed it up best. "Beyond being the flagship for the new SRT brand, the launch of the 2013 Viper proves that we simply would not let the performance icon of the Chrysler Group die," he said to raucous reception. Indeed.
