SRT unveils 2013 Viper GTS Launch Edition in Monterey


The Chrysler Group's Street and Racing Technology (SRT) brand has staged the first official appearance of the new, limited-edition 2013 SRT Viper GTS Launch Edition model.

Held late last week at the Quail Lodge as part of The Quail: A Motorsports Gathering, the company then officially displayed the hot new model on the Concept Lawn at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance.

The 2013 SRT Viper GTS Launch Edition evokes memories of past Viper Coupe with symbolic GTS blue paint and dual bright white stripes running the length of its all-new exterior.

In addition to its historically significant paint scheme, the wheels on SRT Viper Launch Edition models are a modern deep-section design, featuring a five-spoke polished forged-aluminum design.

Stryker badges found on the hood and steering wheel add to the exclusivity, with a blue background replacing grey found on all other 2013 SRT Vipers models.

The all-aluminum, mid-engine 8.4-litre V10 powerplant delivers 640 hp and 600 lb/ft of torque – the most torque of any naturally aspirated sports car engine in the world.

Standard safety features include electronic multistage stability control, traction control and new four-channel anti-lock brake system (ABS).
