Jay Leno Finally Checks Out 2013 SRT Viper


It’s taken a couple of months but the new Viper has finally made its way to Jay’s garage.

It's coming up to three months since the 2013 SRT Dodge Viper debuted at the New York Auto Show, in which time it has been the darling of websites and magazines across the globe.

The same car that lit up the Javitz Center back in April has finally made its way to Jay Leno's garage and while the familiar, albeit spectacular, specs are rightly salivated over, there are some interesting factoids that emerge from both SRT spokeswoman Beth Paretta and designer Mark Trostle. So we know the Viper packs an 8.4-liter V10 with 640hp and 600lb-ft of torque, which is plenty for a car that weighs just 1,500kg. But what we weren't aware of was the pricing, which according to Paretta will start above $110,000 for the top-spec GTS brought to Leno's garage. That means a bare bones Viper will likely come in at around the $90-100k mark.

An insightful video then, but one that is strongly lacking in road footage as Leno was unable to take the pre-production pilot model for a spin. Better luck next time Jay.
