Exclusive: New SRT Viper won’t arrive in Europe image

Chrysler Group LLC has no plans to launch the new generation of the SRT Viper in Europe because the company is currently concentrating on the North American market.

While Chevy is getting ready to launch the new Corvette generation on the Old Continent in the 2014 model year, Chrysler Group LLC is currently concentrating on the North American market and this means that the automaker has no plans of introducing the new SRT Viper generation in Europe, for now at least. As a quick reminder, the new 2013 SRT Viper is Chrysler’s most expensive product ever and the very first unit of the sports car has found a new owner who has paid 300,000 USD for the model.

The 2013 SRT Viper’s official starting price has been set at 97,395 USD, without the 1,995 USD destination charge, while for the 2013 SRT Viper GTS, future owners will have to pay at least 120,395 USD before being able to take their new rides home. The 2013 SRT Viper is coming with an 8.4 liter V10 engine, producing 640 HP (477 kW) and 814 Nm of torque (600 lb-ft), mated to a six-speed manual transmission sending power to the rear-wheel drive. The 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) acceleration is done in approximately 3 seconds and top speed stands at 331 km/h (206 mph).
