    The 2012 SEMA Show in Las Vegas offered many show-goers a
    chance to meet the 2013 SRT Viper for the first time – both in the form of the
    Viper GTS Launch Edition and a “base model” 2013 Viper modified by Mopar.

    The 2013 SRT Viper GTS Launch Edition (shown above) was displayed in the
    Pirelli tire booth, celebrating the partnership between the SRT high performance
    brand and the well known tire company in developing the extreme performance
    tires found on the standard production 2013 Viper.  Only 150 copies of this special Viper GTS Launch
    Edition will be made and with those Vipers becoming instant collectables -
    these are cars that we aren’t likely to see sitting in traffic.  This means that for many people, the 2012
    SEMA Show offered the only chance to see the new special edition Viper GTS in
    the flesh.

    More importantly, the massive indoor Mopar display played
    home to a 2013 Viper “base model” that has been modified by Mopar with items
    that are either currently available or they could soon be coming to the Mopar Performance
    catalog if there is enough interest from owners.  First off, Mopar began with a bright yellow
    entry level 2013 Viper, adding the lightweight wheels from the Track Pack
    wearing a unique HyperBlack paint, a red tow hook and a set of carbon fiber dive
    planes.  Out back, Mopar has added a
    carbon fiber rear spoiler which adds more downforce while also…well…looking pretty
    awesome.

    Inside, the Moparized 2013 SRT Viper wears an aluminum pedal
    kit, brushed aluminum sill guards, an aluminum shift know, a Katzkin leather
    interior package, six point race harnesses and a carbon fiber bulkhead cover
    compete with a built-in mount for a GoPro video camera.  Also, furthering the improved performance of
    the 2013 Viper, Mopar has added a carbon fiber x brace that lightens the car
    without compromising chassis rigidity along with a performance spring package.

    The high performance springs and lightweight chassis brace
    applied by Mopar to the 2013 SRT Viper help to improving handling and
    drivability while the exterior changes improve aerodynamics and lighten up the
    car further.  Best of all, these minor
    changes add to the aggressive look of the new Mopar supercar – making the new
    Viper even more awesome.

    I would certainly expect to see all of these items for the
    2013 SRT Viper available from Mopar in the near future…probably shortly after
    the new Viper enters production later this month.
