2013 Viper Will Go On Sale To Viper Owners First

We're still not all that excited about the Viper nameplate being moved from Dodge to SRT, but we are very excited for the dawn of a new snake. Rumors have been running wild on the 2013 Viper for years, and in a few months, we'll finally get to see it. "See" is the operative word there because only preexisting Viper owners will be invited to buy the model upon launch.

MSNBC reports that only Viper owners will have the chance to buy one of the first models to launch. If you don't already have a Viper, you'll have to wait until the loyalists get first pickings. The report doesn't have any details in terms of launch time frames, so we'll have to wait and see exactly what Dodge..er SRT has in mind.

The 2013 Viper will launch at the 2012 New York Auto Show in April. Despite early rumors of a more refined, Fiat-influenced engine, the latest intel suggests that the new Viper will use an 8.7-liter V-10 engine, which is even bigger than the already huge 8.4-liter V-10 that powered the last Viper.

While the company will have to forget about selling any Vipers to eco-sensitive, upper class urbanites with that engine, it does want to broaden the appeal of the model. The new Viper will incorporate electronic stability control to help novice drivers control all that V-10 power and torque. It's also expected to get a more comfortable interior and a new look that draws inspiration from a lady on a nude beach.

I wasn't really planning on buying a 2013 Viper anyway, so the news of its sale being limited at launch doesn't dampen any of my enthusiasm. I can't wait to see this debut.
