viper video ss 1.jpgThe Chrysler Group has issues a series of short videos
    discussing many of the fine details of the 2013 SRT Viper that help make it so
    incredible and today, we take a look at the first video in that series.  This video is a broad overview of the new
    Viper, brought to us with the help of Graham Henckel – the Chief Engineer for
    the 2013 SRT Viper program.

    While five minutes is nowhere near enough to really give a
    full overview of the 2012 SRT Viper, Henckel touches on all of the most
    important areas of design and engineering. 
    He addresses the fact that the designers did look at their new cousins
    from Ferrari, Maserati and Alfa Romeo while in the early stages but in the long
    run, the group made sure to capture the real look and spirit of the new
    American supercar.

    As the video goes on, Henckel discusses the lightweight
    design of the 2013 SRT Viper thanks to the heavy use of carbon fiber for the
    body and high strength steel in the chassis – as well as how this bolsters the
    performance of the Viper.  Finally, the
    Viper program boss talks about the goal to build an amazing supercar that is
    every bit as impressive on the track as it is on the street.

    Anyways, without further delay, check out the first in the series
    of the new 2013 SRT Viper videos!
