Chrysler has announced pricing information for the 2013 SRT Viper, with the base price seen above, and the higher-spec Viper GTS model at $120,395 (plus destination). Either way, SRT's latest snake will pack the same 8.4-liter V10 engine with 640 horsepower and 600 pound-feet of torque. For those keeping track, the Viper's weight-shedding diet means each of those ponies is lugging around just 4.9 pounds. Stepping up to the GTS will net the buyer such goodies as two-mode active suspension, premium interior furnishings.
Along with the official asking price, SRT has seen fit to release a smattering of new images showing the Viper's curves in yellow and blue. We suggest you check out the images above, then skip back down below for some video and the official press release.
