We’ve just driven the all-new
2013 SRT Viper
, and can confirm it is a marvelous machine, and now production of the car is ready to be lifted to full capacity as customer orders start getting filled.
Chrysler will be waiting until after this week’s Thanksgiving break before production of the SRT Viper fully ramps up.
Dealer orders are expected to begin in mid-November 2012, with first deliveries scheduled for December.
The latest version is being built at Chrysler’s Conner Avenue Assembly Plant in Detroit, which has been home to the Viper since 1995.
In case you’re interested, pricing starts at $97,395, plus a hefty $1,995 destination fee. This nets you the standard Viper, though if you want the more luxurious GTS you’ll have to fork over $120,395 plus the same $1,995 destination fee. Note, there's a long list of options
All Vipers come standard with an 8.4-liter V-10 rated at 640 horsepower and 600 pound-feet of torque. That will get you from 0-60 in just over 3.0 seconds and see you comfortably reach a top speed of 206 mph. A six-speed manual is the only transmission on offer, though this time there’s traction control and even a launch control system fitted.
