Ferrari boss Montezemolo is “speechless” over new SRT Viper image

The Ferrari chairman Luca Cordero di Montezemolo was “speechless” after looking closer at the all-new 2013 SRT Viper.

According to Sergio Marchione, the Chrysler chairman and CEO, the Ferrari boss Luca Cordero di Montezemolo had a closer look at the 2013 SRT Viper during a board meeting and he was absolutely “speechless” over the new American supercar.

“I had the chairman of Ferrari down here for the board meeting last week and he had a chance to look at the car, and he was speechless. I mean, for Ferrari to admit that the car is a unique vehicle is a hell of a compliment. So I’m delighted. I mean, so far, knock on wood, we’re doing well”, said Sergio Marchionne in an interview on Detroit radio WJR-AM.

The new generation of the Viper was officially presented to the public at the 2012 New York Auto Show in a world premiere, last month. The 2013 SRT Viper is getting its power from an 8.4 liter V8 mid-mounted engine which is developing a total output of 640 HP and 600 lb-ft of torque. Standard features on the new Viper include traction control, four-channel ABS, two-mode adjustable suspension, electronic multistage stability control and many more.
