This figure includes a $20,000 fee is paid for the opportunity to sell the Viper while $5000 has to be paid for the SRT agreement that consists of tools, equipment, SRT-specific training, and a day at the SRT Track Experience.

Buyers of SRT vehicles can experience the track event for free. Only 100 to 150 of Chrysler’s more than 2300 dealers will be selected to sell the Viper.

According to USA Today reports, Chrysler will approve only about 100 to 150 of the 2300 Chrysler, Dodge, Fiat, and Ram dealers in the U.S. SRT chief Ralph Gilles sent a letter to dealers, telling them that the No 1 requirement to sell the new Viper “is first of all, to have the fire, the passion.”

Gilles told Automotive News that SRT cars have started to appeal to “more sophisticated” consumers with higher income and education levels than in the past.
