The Dodge SRT Viper is making a come back since the filing of Chrysler’s bankruptcy. The company has just confirmed that the next-generation Dodge Viper SRT is slated for production.
The Dodge Viper SRT was discontinued almost two years ago when the economy took a dive, but since last year, Chrysler is making some profit and so the returning of the Viper SRT. Chrysler is re-opening the Conner Avenue Assembly Plant to mark the returning of the Viper SRT sports car. Indeed many enthusiasts are thrilled with the returning of the Viper SRT, but will that suffice for the Viper’s long live.
“The next generation Viper will make its return to the product lineup in late 2012 as a 2013 model,” said Ralph Gilles, President and Chief Executive Officer – SRT Brand and Motorsports, Chrysler Group LLC. “We’re extremely excited that our ultimate American sports car will continue to live on and be produced exclusively here in the Motor City.”
As we all know, the Dodge Viper SRT is a pure sports car. In a sense that it is not very comfortable to drive. Its suspension system is so ridged and its comfort amenities are not many, not like the well tuned Corvette ZR-1. But if you want pure adrenaline and neck breaking speed, the Viper SRT is up to the task with its potent V10 engine.
Hopefully, the new next-generation Dodge Viper SRT sports car will be more catering to the masses rather than a few select groups. So far, Chrysler hasn’t spilled much info on the next-generation Dodge Viper SRT yet. But from the look of a spy photo, the next-generation Viper SRT looks similar in shape to the previous-generation model. Although the covered front fascia will tell a different story when it rolls off the line in late 2012.
