Come November, you'll be able to put a mean snake in your garage for $97,395, *plus $1,995 for destination.

2013 SRT Viper in yellowChrysler 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.

Chrysler Group Announces Pricing for 2013 SRT Viper Models

Street and Racing Technology (SRT) brand's flagship performance machine returns with more power and performance, superior craftsmanship, new technologies and creature comforts
Two new models include SRT Viper and SRT Viper GTS
All-aluminum, mid-front 8.4-liter V-10 engine delivers 640 horsepower and 600 lb.-ft. of torque – the most torque of any naturally aspirated sports car engine in the world
Triple-digit weight reduction results in Viper best power-to-weight ratio
Dealer orders expected to open in mid-November 2012


September 10, 2012 , Auburn Hills, Mich. - The Chrysler Group's Street and Racing Technology (SRT) brand today announced pricing for the two models of the all-new 2013 SRT Viper.

2013 SRT Viper

Manufacturer's suggested retail price (MSRP) for the 2013 SRT Viper model is $97,395 (excluding $1,995 destination)
The SRT Viper offers a blend of extreme performance and deliberate preservation of what has become the iconic DNA of the Viper to deliver a supercar that continues to bring the driver as close as possible to the machine

2013 SRT Viper GTS

MSRP for the 2013 SRT Viper GTS model is $120,395 (excluding $1,995 destination)
The SRT Viper GTS builds on the DNA of the SRT Viper model with more technologically advanced solutions, like two-mode active suspension, to allow this world-class GTS to find new capabilities on the track while also opening up its envelope as a more premium and mature evolution of the classic, extreme performance formula

Under the hood of both models is the all-aluminum, mid-front 8.4-liter V-10 engine that delivers 640 horsepower and 600 lb.-ft. of torque – the most torque of any naturally aspirated sports car engine in the world.

Both SRT Viper and SRT Viper GTS models offer new interior and exterior designs incorporating premium materials. New exterior surfaces with aerodynamically functional details are beautifully integrated into the high-tech carbon fiber and aluminum skin, which helps produce a triple-digit weight reduction and a Viper best power-to-weight ratio.

On the inside, designers and engineers strived to rethink all touch points; and upgrade all material appointments and technologies.

Production of the iconic supercar will begin at the Conner Avenue Assembly Plant in Detroit – the home for Viper since 1995 – in November 2012. Dealer orders are expected to begin in mid-November 2012.

      That drivers seat looks soooo comfortable. The center console is huge and one thing I like, the cup holders are out of the way of shifting. Cannot wait to see what this car can really do.

        point proven. Giving reviews of the viper and using cup holder placement as a plus...lol...SRT has truly killed the essence of the viper and now all the dorky porsche folks can make stupid comments like this, next they will say they really like how the trunk can easily fit two briefcases

          You can remove the cup holders if it's that big of a deal. Some people would like to be hidrated, however when they're driving their car a few hundred miles to the track so they can humiliate the local Corvette owners.

      It is very impressive in person, especially in the deep red color. It is the best color of red I have ever seen. The interior is outstanding...it very much looks and feels like a $100K+ car now.

      The "regular" one looks damn good. I would have a hard time justifying the extra $20,000 plus. They are going to sell a boatload of these things.

      I'm noticing some differences in the yellow car which I've yet to see on any of the new Vipers shown. I'm not sure if it is the GTS, or perhaps all the others were GTSs, and this is a "standard" spec model. The lack of a carbon fiber (or CF-look) panel between the tail lights might support the latter. The blue car seems to have GTS badging inside, so this furthers that notion. However, it's the hood on the yellow Viper that really made me stand up and take notice. The additional heat vents totaling 6 instead of the 2 appearing on every other car are stunningly aggressive. I really missed them since the departure of the last Viper, so this is great news.

      I don't know who here plays forza. In the game, in this car it has a pretty sweet shift light. Once the rpms get to redline, like the whole tach starts flashing a red picture of a viper. I wonder if it'll be in the production car.

      I can't believe the users on here wanting AWD on a Viper. Might as well ask for tear-free shampoo, ya babies!

      So impressive inside and out! Can't wait for the reviews from here to top gear. Im a vette guy but Chevy better have something special for their c7 zr1. What a great year for American sports cars

      Pictures do not give this car justice at all.

      Out of international curiosity, what other cars go for around $100,000 - $120,000 in the States? Someone mentioned the GT-R is around $90,000, where does the new 911 sit price wise? Or 458? And, I guess for a more direct comparison, the ZR1 (which like the Viper, unfortunately, doesn't get sold here)? Thanks in advance

        @Krytos
        The new 911 ranges from about $80k (base Carrera) to way above 100, 120k for a loaded Carrera S. Maybe with a Carrera 4S cabrio you could nail like $150k with boxes ticked. A lot of dough for 400hp, but Porsche arent considered bargains. The pricier, faster variants (turbo, GT3, GT2) are a better match but are still "old", being based on the 997 model. The GTR can get near 100k when you get the higher trim. The Z06 Corvette ranges from about $75-110k depending if you go for basic spec or the top tier magnetorehological suspension, PTM, carbon brakes, and track tires. A ZR1 goes from about $110-130k and would be a best match cost, tech, and performancewise to the new Viper. The 458 is in a VASTLY different price league, costing anywhere from $230-330k with the ability to spend a Viper's cost worth on ridiculously overpriced options that dont really make it look or drive much different. Hmm, for $100-120k you could also get a Jaguar XKRS, a V8 Aston Martin Vantage, a C63 Black Series, M3 GTS (though I dont think they sell here, already sold out in EU), Audi R8 V8 or V10, M5, E63 AMG,

        Just keep in mind that $100,000 for a car in the US doesn't include sales tax (depending on in which state the car is purchased, that can range from 0% or as high as 11%).

      Was this video made in the late 80's or early 90's? I can't wait to see road tests.

        It sure is! The new Viper logo "Stryker" glows brighter and brighter behind your tachometer as you start to reach your max rpm. Its really sweet indeed!

          If you hit the 6400 rpm limiter, the snake pops out and threatens to attack unless you upshift or back the hell down.
