The 2013 SRT® Viper combines classic beauty with enough modern flair to start your love affair anew. Bodywork on the Viper more closely hugs what lies beneath to look more compact and purposeful, while evolving the classic Viper form. The side "gill" shape inspired by the original Dodge Viper RT/10 remains a focal point. The new roof line is longer and sleeker, tapering more toward the rear. The sports car's new fenders have broader shoulders and a much more aggressive racing look. Classic tones and stripes flow toward quick-firing LED tail lamps guarded by dark-tinted "snake-skin" lenses. The staff here at Franklin Chrysler Jeep Dodge know it will be "love at first bite" for you and your new Viper
The newly updated V-10 engine produces a heart-pumping 640 horsepower at 6,150 rpm and 600 pound-feet of torque at 4,950 rpm, the most of any naturally aspirated sports car in the world. The venerable Tremec TR6060 close-ratio six-speed manual transmission is standard on both the SRT Viper and SRT Viper GTS with closer gear ratios for better response. Shift throws have been reduced by 12.5 percent to improve performance, and a final-drive gear ratio of 3.55 to 1 produces new levels of top-speed performance.
The Viper is back with enough raw emotion and power that it will capture your soul.The new car's robust Stability control is a first on the new Viper, allowing full "on" or "off" of the Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC) and Dynamic Traction Control (DTC) systems. the 2013 SRT Viper will produce ulta fast launches on the Nashville streets with new standard steering-wheel-mounted launch control. Maximum Performance coil springs, gas-charged, aluminum-body Bilstein® monotube dampers and tubular stabilizer bars front and rear complete the race-inspired suspension system.
The new Viper is leaner, meaner and powers through corners with the precision of, well, a snake. Viper keeps a near-perfect 50/50 weight balance front to back and features a new, lighter and stiffer space-frame structure.
