With production and sales of the SRT Viper in full swing, the high-performance coupe is receiving some minor changes for its sophomore year.

16Price of exclusivity rising: Maybachs get $3500 price increase

Mercedes has a novel idea to simulate sales of its sluggish-selling Rolls-Royce competitor. Since it's not selling as well as the company had hoped, why not crank up the price? The Maybach 57 and 62 have both received a $3,500 price increase for the 2008 model year, bringing their total tallies to $341,750 and $392,750 respectively.
