2013 SRT Viper – Fast and Mean Looking!

To start the fifth generation with blazing fury, the 2013 SRT Viper dropped the Dodge name and also shed around 100 pounds. That is a lot of baggage it didn’t need, so now it is better than ever.

A brand new design language is obvious on the exterior, and although still as aggressive as ever, it is also quite graceful.


  • Carbon fiber hood, deck lid and roof, and aluminum panel doors help with weight reduction
  • Rear quarters kick out even more to reduce tail-end drag more efficiently
  • Modified front air intake
  • New side-exit exhaust system with sill-mounted, cast aluminum bezels
  • Forged aluminum, five-spoke wheels standard; split six-spoke “Venom” wheel design optional in three finishes


Premium materials, superior craftsmanship and performance-oriented technology can all be appreciated in the passenger cabin, which is quite a change from the shell design it once had.


  • Sabelt high-performance racing seats
  • Adjustable pedals and seats
  • Surprisingly spacious trunk offers 14 cubic feet


Performance is nothing short of phenomenal. It is more confident than ever before with precise steering and superior cornering prowess.


  • 8.4-liter V10 produces 640 horsepower and 600 pound-feet of torque
  • Six-speed manual transmission
  • Zero to 60 mph is accomplished in 3.7 seconds
  • Two stability control modes
  • SLA suspension system


Viper once offered nothing more than a cassette deck; my how times have changed. This is now a luxury supercar.


  • Customizable instrument cluster displays on 7-inch LED screen
  • Steering wheel mounted controls
  • 8.4-inch color touch screen controls audio, Chrysler Uconnect system and other features
  • Optional 18-spaker Harman Kardon® Logic 7® surround sound


When braking is put to the test, the 2013 SRT Viper manages to come to a halt from 60 mph in 101 feet; an impressive number indeed.


  • Uconnect system offers emergency services and roadside assistance
  • Rearview camera
  • Tire pressure monitoring
  • Post collision safety system
  • Dusk sensing headlamps
  • Emergency braking assist


The old Viper was fun to drive, but it was a lot to handle. The new 2013 SRT Viper manages to deliver a more controlled and confident ride, without compromising performance. It even throws in a comfortable cabin with all the amenities you could want, in case you feel like driving it more than once a year.
