2013 SRT Viper pricing starts at $97,395 - new photos and video

Orders start in mid-November.

Chrysler has announced the pricing information for the 2013 SRT Viper and Viper GTS. The entry-level model has a MSRP of $97,395, not taking into account the $1,995 destination charges. As for the GTS model, this begins from $120,395 without the destination fee.

Both models are motivated by a mid-front, all-aluminum V10 8.4-liter engine with 640 hp (477 kW) and 600 lb-ft (812 Nm) of torque, providing the highest amount of torque among naturally-aspirated sports cars, according to SRT. This power unit is mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox that delivers the power to the rear wheels through a speed-sensing limited slip differential.

To make it lighter than the model it replaced, SRT used a tubular space frame that has a magnesium cowl while the hood, roof and liftgate are made from carbon fiber. The doors are manufactured from aluminum while the quarter panels are from plastic, enabling the entry-level model to have a curb weight of only 3,354 lbs (1,521 kg), making it about 100 lbs (45 kg) lighter than the previous model.

The production of the 2013 Viper is expected to commence this November at the Conner Avenue Assembly Plant in Detroit where they made all the Vipers, while the order books will open in mid-November.

The italians made it happen with some of the polish it needed to be a world's sport car. I usually buy foreign sport cars but this may be the exception. I have had corvette's way in the past but this car is in a league way over any Corvette even the ZR1.

Italians have barely anything to do with the design. The design came strictly from the SRT team which is basically the same team that made previous gen Viper.

the price is reasonable I think. just a little overpriced considering the plastic components but anyway, it is a history with lots of upgraded power...

The hood on the GTS is much nicer, the normal one is just too much.

Its more fluid styling doesnt make it any less pure. Its still a Mid-Mounted front engine/RearWD car. Its still a V10 now with even more power and torque. Its still a car whose only level of traction control is your right foot and that speed sensing LSD.
