Ferrari Chairman “speechless” when he saw the 2013 SRT Viper

Article by Christian A., on May 4, 2012

It appears that the latest fan of the 2013 SRT Viper is no other than Ferrari Chairman Luca Cordero di Montezemolo. According to InsideLine, he told his boss a.k.a. Fiat and Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne that he has “speechless” after he got up-close-and-personal with the brand new sports car. Marchionne also added that Montezemolo’s opinion is a hell of a compliment.

The 2013 SRT Viper was launched back in April at the 2012 New York Auto Show and made quite a buzz, as this month it appears on the cover of four big automotive magazines.

The vehicle is powered by an impressive 8.4-liter all-aluminum V10 engine delivering 640 hp and 600 lb.-ft. of torque.

The engine uses a Tremec TR060 six-speed manual transmission. According to Chrysler, the transmission was improved with a shorter throw shifter closer gear ratios and a final drive ratio that has been shortened to 3.55 from 3.07.
