SRT Prices New Viper from $97,395


Pricing for the new Viper vitally comes in below the Corvette ZR1. We smell a showdown coming on.

SRT has finally released pricing for the long-awaited 2013 Viper. The new snake will be available for order beginning in November with pricing starting at $97,395. That figure doesn't take into account the mandatory $1,995 destination fee Chrysler is charging, but the sticker price brings the new Viper in below arch-rival Chevrolet's top-of-the-line Corvette ZR1. The 2013 Viper, which made its official debut back in April, packs a boisterous 8.4-liter V10 rated at 640 horsepower and 600 pound-feet of torque.

For comparison's sake, the 2013 Corvette ZR1 runs on a 6.2-liter supercharged V8, which puts out 638hp and 604 lb-ft of torque. Priced at over $113,000, the ZR1 is a more expensive proposition (by about $16k) compared to the latest Viper. The top-trim Viper GTS, meanwhile, is priced at $120,395 (also before delivery). Employing a two-mode active suspension and higher-quality materials, the GTS still undercuts the fully-loaded ZR1 by about three grand, instantly making the 2013 Viper an immediate and more fiscally-conservative competitor in the realm of American supercars. Not to mention a (slightly) more powerful one.
