A Short Video History of the Dodge (Now SRT) Viper


Although it almost didn't happen, the Viper will continue to live on.

In its relatively short time on this planet, the Dodge/SRT Viper has made a significant impact on the global sports car scene. As both a road and race car, the Viper has helped to further establish America's standing in the automotive performance world. From the moment the concept was revealed in 1989, the Viper was truly one of a kind. At a time when Chrysler was suffering from lack of good product (minivans don't count) and quality issues, the Viper was clearly the stand out star.

Now that the new 2013 SRT Viper has had its official debut at the 2012 New York Auto Show, Chrysler produced this video looking back on their beloved V10 sports car and how it's evolved and prospered since its 1992 production launch.
