  • Performance

In terms of performance this car is believed to run in the same league as Ferrari and C7, the main difference being the fact that it is a lot cheaper as it can be acquired for around $100.000.  The monster engine delivers 640 horsepower which makes it go from 0 to 60 miles in just 3,5 seconds as it reaches a top speed of 206 miles per hour. However, this is not such an impressive performance if we take into account the fact that the last Viper was also fierce but it had a not so friendly handling ability and frequent maintenance needs. However, the new Viper is 140 pounds lighter and 50 % stiffer. It features a 6-speed manual transmission with improved clutch. The new Viper also has a brand new suspension which makes the handling a lot more predictable especially when combined with the multi-setting stability control technology. This vehicle is designed to challenge all the superstars that can reach almost their full potential without technological head rails. Other major performance improvements include the lighter valve train, sodium filled exhaust valves and forged pistons. Given these performance features, you might want to invest in a radar detector before taking this car from a spin as you are not likely to be able to restrain yourself from pushing that gas pedal. Check out some the latest radar detector reviews and invest in a top quality detector that will keep your wallet safe from speeding tickets. When reading radar detector reviews, make sure to pick a long lasting gadget which is also easy to use.

  • Exterior

The design of the 2013 SRT Viper has kept a lot of the elements of the former Viper model. However, it does have an edgier look which resembles a dangerous serpent. It has the same steel space frame but it is a lot lighter. The chassis is 50% stiffer but it also maintains a 49/51 weight split front to rear. An interesting improvement to the new Viper is the fixed roof which has never before been used on Vipers. The new Viper comes in two models, the original and the GTS. The original Viper is characterized by the 5 spoke polished alloy wheels, the classic hood vents and the body colored front and read. The GTS adds carbon fiber panels, multi-spoke lightweight wheels, red brake calibers and dual stage adjustable Bilstein dampers.

  • Interior

The 2013 SRT Viper is the pure definition of sophistication. The black plastic and rubber of the previous models have been replace with top quality leather. The gauge cluster has a center tachometer which features a LCD panel. The seats have a shell shape and they allow more headroom than the previous models. The center tunnel from the driver’s seat is lower. The steering wheels is characterized by a 3-spoke look  and thick grips. Each vehicle can be personalized according to the driver’s desires as the manufacturers provide various options of leather and colors. The GTS has a lot more options such as three levels of stereo with 18 speakers.

The 2013 SRT Viper is still a classic Viper, despite that fact that it has suffered several transformation. After analyzing all its features, we get the feeling that the idea was not to make a more powerful Viper but rather a more sophisticated one. We must agree that the manufacturers accomplished their purpose as the new Viper has one of the most dangerous designs which is beautifully combined with sophisticated details.
