The 2013 SRT Viper is without a doubt one of the most important and impressive vehicles to come out of the Chrysler Group in a long time. While it may not be a high production vehicle and while you might not see very many of them driving around on the road, it is a big name builder for Chrysler and the new SRT division that has become its own branch now. The Viper is the first vehicle to be branded as an SRT and helps to build the divisions name as a performance arm of the Chrysler Group.
The Viper is just plain awesome too. Its incredible 8.4-liter, naturally aspirated, V-10 engine cranks out an unbelievable 640 horsepower and 600 lb-ft of torque. That is the more grunt than any naturally aspirated, production sports-car engine in the world. If you are interested in this work of automotive artwork, you’ll love the video from the New York Times showing a time-lapse of the final assembly of the Viper. Check it out below.
