Petrolheads among us will know that Chrysler’s high performance SRT brand has unveiled recently the much anticipated all-new Viper supercar at the 2012 New York Motor Show last week. Powered by an 8.4-litre V10 producing 640hp and 600lb ft of torque, the SRT Viper is not only an American legend reborn but it also sports new tech toys previously not seen the in muscle car.
New toys include launch control, two-stage adjustable damping and four-stage ESP. SRT has even gone so far as to specify different rubber compounds for the enormous front and rear tyres.
Formula One style double wishbone suspension all-round and high performance Brembo brakes suggest a promising driving experience. But make no mistake, this car was and always will be dominated by that honking great engine. Even the shift light takes the form of a snake.
Because Chrysler is now part of the Fiat group which also owns luxury supercar brands Ferrari and Maserrati, the quality of the new SRT Viper’s interior has been given a major boost, an example of this is the stitching work done to its leather cabin.
