2013 SRT Viper
2013 SRT Viper

New For 2013

After a two-year hiatus, the Viper returns for 2013. The all-new car is now branded SRT rather than Dodge.

Overview

The rear tires span 28 inches on the new SRT Viper, and every inch is needed. How else would you keep something with 640 hp stuck to the pavement? This is the fifth generation of the Viper, and it’s as instantly recognizable as its predecessors. What’s not as recognizable is the name before “Viper,” because this is the first product to be branded an SRT (Chrysler’s Street and Racing Technology division), not a Dodge. Both the Viper and the Viper GTS will be hand-built at the Conner Avenue Assembly Plant in Detroit the Viper’s home since 1995. The only transmission is a Tremec six-speed manual. The Viper GTS has a two-mode active suspension that should enhance track performance. Each Viper gets a different Uconnect Media Center. Chrysler claims that an all-new carbon-fiber hood, roof, and deck lid, along with aluminum door panels, help the car shed some weight, but even the lightest SRT Viper variant is heavier than the first-ever Viper. However, with 640 hp, 600 lb-ft of torque, and a low drag coefficient, this latest Viper should still go like stink in a straight line. And when equipped with the optional SRT Track Package that features soft-compound tires, hyper-black lightweight aluminum wheels, and two-piece vented brake rotors, the Viper should go like stink through the twisties, too.

Safety

Standard safety equipment includes front, side, and side curtain air bags; traction and stability control; ABS; and tire-pressure monitors.

2013 Srt Viper Rig Shot
Photographing cars is a lot like driving them, in that almost everyone does it but few do it well. Some fault lies with the gear. Attempting a nighttime picture with a cell-phone camera, for instance, is like drag-racing a Honda Fit—you can do it, but the results won’t be pretty. Conversely, walking around a car show with a top-of-the-line Canon EOS 5D Mark III around your neck no more makes you a pro shooter than owning a 2013 SRT Viper qualifies you to race at Sebring. But with some basic techniques, anyone can create artful images using any camera. Over the next few pages, staff photographer Patrick Hoey explains how he achieves some of the most common types of images featured in Automobile Magazine. We’ve also reached out to a few of our regular contributing photographers, who share some of their own secrets.
2013 SRT Viper Front Three Quarters
Though the SRT Viper was just launched in 2013, the 2014 model sees a price increase of $2000 over the 2013's introductory price. A few more standard features accounts for the bump to $103,990, an MSRP that includes the $1995 destination charge and $2600 gas guzzler tax.
2013 SRT Viper Tested On J Turn Front View
While testing cars sounds like it's all fun and games, there's much more to it than that. The J-Turn's host Jessi Lang shows just what goes on at a test day as she shadows the Motor Trend testing crew at the track.
SRT Viper GT3 R Race Car Front Three Quarter
If you're a fan of international sports car racing, you may soon see more snakes on the grid as SRT has launched the Viper GT3-R customer race car. The car draws heavily on the Viper GTS-R currently racing in ALMS, and is eligible to compete in FIA GT3-class races. The GT3-R is the first Viper race car to be offered since the Viper Competition Coupe.
2013 SRT Viper GTS For Sons Of Italy Front
Chrysler's SRT brand built a one-off special edition of the 2013 SRT Viper to help benefit a charity auction. The Viper GTS was built for Sons Of Italy Foundation, a charity supporting Americans of Italian heritage. The car will be auctioned off later this year to benefit the charity.
