MotorTrend has a rigorous set of instrumented testing procedures, and they are given a closer look in the buff book's latest YouTube video, as it tackles the 2013 SRT Viper.

Using a stylish, white and silver SRT Viper, host Jessi Lang takes us through the battery of tests that each new car receives. That includes the more mundane acceleration runs, with some interesting tips from Scott Mortara on what it takes to charm the 640-horsepower snake.

Vehicle dynamics are also put under a microscope with MT's figure-eight testing. Motor Trend's Testing Director Kim Reynolds shows off the suite of testing instruments used on the Viper before heading out to conduct the test.
