With all of the hype and the extended two-year run-up to the arrival of the 2013 SRT Viper, it's no surprise that many came away from the unveiling feeling a bit let down--though we weren't among that group. Here, we take a quick overview of the car, including the ALMS racing version.

With 640 horsepower and 600 pound-feet of torque on tap, but this time reined in by a network of electronic safety controls, the new Viper promises to be as capable as ever, while being significantly easier to drive. It's also shaping up to be much more luxurious and comfortable, with seats from the same supplier as Ferrari and a very nicely done leather-wrapped interior.
