2016 Dodge Viper Soon in TacomaWhen you seek out top of the line performance and speed, the choice obvious. The 2016 Dodge Viper Soon in Tacoma is a car that the manufacturer can confidently say is all-American—built in Detroit, the Viper exemplifies performance and power, all while presenting unforgettable styling and experience for the driver.

2016 Dodge Viper Soon in Tacoma

The ACR is a track-ready super performance version of the 2016 Dodge Viper Soon in Tacoma. The distinctive Viper styling is further added to with the optional Extreme Aero Package, which gives it a removable front splitter extension, an adjustable dual-element rear wing, four drive planes, removable brake ducts, and hood louvers. 19-inch Kumho Ecsta V720 Street tires can take on the road with ease, and carbon-ceramic Brembo brakes can stop the Viper as easily as its 8.4L V10 engine (making 645 horsepower and 600 lb.-ft. of torque) can send it flying A six-speed manual transmission transmits all that power to the rear axle.

2015 Dodge Viper

If you’re not satisfied waiting for the 2016 Dodge Viper Soon in Tacoma, you can opt for the 2015 model. The engine for the 2015 model is the same V10 as the 2016 ACR, which, combined with either a single-mode high-performance suspension or an available driver-selectable suspension with track and street settings, allows the Viper to exemplify the best in both power and control. This is added to with the five-mode Electronic Stability Control System, and the accent-painted robust Brembo brakes.

The 2015 Viper’s hood is made from a single piece of carbon fiber, reducing weight and maximizing airflow to cool the powerful engine underneath it. Inside, the materials are the highest-quality, and include Laguna Leather, Nappa Leather, Suede, and Cloth. Seats are comfortably tuned for both support and mass reduction, and come in a number of styles, so you can customize your Viper’s interior as well as the exterior.

The UConnect system features an 8.4-inch touchscreen, GPS navigation, HD Radio, Hands-free calling, Bluetooth Streaming Audio and more; you’ll be well-connected even when pushing the Viper to the limit. An available Harman Kardon speaker system plays your music through 18 speakers and a 12-channel amplifier. Most of the features on the current 2015 is expected to carry over to the 2016 model as well.

2013 SRT Viper - blue with white stripes - front three-quarter view

Back in May, we were the first to reveal that Chrysler was going to be requiring that its dealers meet certain special criteria to sell the 2013 SRT Viper. Now, USA Today is reporting that no more than 6.5 percent of Chrysler’s U.S. dealerships will earn the right to sell the new Viper. Of the 2,300 dealerships, “only about 100 to 150″ will satisfy the qualifications SRT has deemed necessary to satisfy the “different kind of a customer” and “different approach” that the Viper requires. That’s far fewer outlets than the one-fifth of Chrysler’s dealer body that was rumored back in July.

Those fortunate enough to make the cut will receive full-circle training in how to deal with all aspects of the $99,390 SRT Viper and $122,390 Viper GTS, and a report in Automotive News indicates that they’ll have to pay for it: a “high-performance agreement” to sell the 640-horsepower coupe will cost $20,000, but a further $5,000 is needed for tools, training, preferential ordering and peripherals that apply to the brand and every vehicle in the SRT stable.

Any dealer can opt in at the $5,000 level, and if they have met customer satisfaction standards, they are eligible for the special treatment when it comes to ordering. Any dealer can also work on any SRT vehicle, excluding the Viper. Only the select few, though, will get the chance to spend that $20,000. What it will take to be among the chosen hasn’t been divulged, with SRT CEO Ralph Gilles saying only that “the first unofficial requirement… [is] a love affair with the cars.”

Tom Gale with Dodge Viper on show stand

The good people at Motor Trend met up with Tom Gale at this year’s Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance to discuss the new SRT Viper. As you may recall, Gale was one of the designers instrumental in penning the exterior of the first generation bruiser.

How does he feel about the successor to the throne he helped build? Gale says he likes how the new Viper pays homage to its RT/10 and GTS Coupe forebearers. This is despite the fact that Gale had no input on the final design of the new model, though he says he “thinks the world of Ralph [Gilles].”

Gale went on to give the new Viper a quick design analysis, praising it for retaining the near-vertical A-pillar of its predecessor while pushing the aesthetics forward with more modern touches. You can head on over to the Motor Trend site to read the interesting interview, but before you do, be sure to vote in our Viper poll below.

2013 SRT Viper - Blue with white stripes

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.

2013 SRT Viper GTS Launch Edition

SRT has just surprised us with news that it will be making an appearance in Monterey this week with a special vehicle in tow. Taking its place among historic automobiles on the Concept Lawn at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance this weekend will be the 2013 SRT Viper GTS Launch Edition model, wearing the iconic GTS Blue paint and dual white stripes of prior Viper coupe launches from both 1996 and 2006.

The Viper GTS Launch Edition also features exclusive five-spoke polished forged-aluminum wheels that evoke, but also evolve, the wheel designs of those prior launch models. These special Vipers also get a serialized dash plaque placed inside their cabins to increase collectibility, and their interiors will be swathed in Black Laguna leather with contrast stitching. Production will be limited, but Chrysler has refrained from saying how many Launch Editions will be built.

Check out official images of the 2013 SRT Viper GTS Launch Edition in the gallery above, and stay tuned for our own live images of the car when we encounter it out in person at Pebble Beach.

Only one fifth of Chrysler Group dealers will have the chance to sell 2013 SRT Viper, according to an Automotive News report. To qualify for the V10 beast, a hopeful dealer will have to train staff and purchase special tools, as well as improve their facilities. This does not guarantee the ability to sell the Viper. It merely keeps the dealer on the list of potential suitors.

SRT CEO Ralph Gilles spoke with journalists in a broadcast interview in Detroit this month, lining out the plan for dealers intent on selling the 8.4-liter snake: “We’re going to open it up to any dealer who can put up the money … you’ve got to have the training, the facilities, and some history of selling Vipers and SRTs in general.”

While Chrysler has not yet announced the number of Vipers to be built each year, it will certainly be a limited run, and not every dealer will have the opportunity to put one in their showroom. According to Gilles, they want only the best dealers carrying their 640-horsepower super car.

“There’s going to be a new breed of customer coming, so we want to make sure they have a great experience,” said Gilles.

2013 SRT Viper shown with stripes for the first time (red with white)

While this really doesn’t qualify as “news,” the above photo still has us excited enough to share. It’s the first official image of the new 2013 SRT Viper with stripes. You see, we were a bit nonplussed when the Viper debuted at the New York Auto Show without its trademark livery. Perhaps it was to better focus attention on the sheetmetal’s new curves, but we still missed seeing the lines down the middle on the show stand.

Chrysler has rectified that as shown in this single image of a red example on SRT’s Facebook page. According to the caption, the example seen here is an engineering prototype undergoing dry-track stability control testing, an evaluation it apparently passed “with flying colors.”

We’re also reminded of a little tidbit that Chrysler design boss and SRT brand manager Ralph Gilles recently shared with us that he’s quite proud about: The 2013 Viper’s stripes will be worn underneath the clearcoat, not above. That’s a change from the past model, and should result in both a better appearance and improved wear. The new stripes will be available in white as shown, but also in black and gunmetal pearl as cost options.

We’re looking forward to seeing this car in GTS Blue Pearl with white stripes, as not only was the blue/white combo borderline iconic on the last-generation GTS, it also did a striking job of representing America’s international racing colors.
