The SRT Viper is set to go on sale later this year, and there's no way it's going to upset.
Here are some of the details

Engine Technology: SRT put a single-cam variable-valve timing system and a cam-in-cam design that enables independent exhaust phasing. Both of these systems were in the 2010 model, but because the weight was higher in that model, the benefits of these systems wasn't fully realized. They are great for improving power and efficiency. This SRT viper will have 640 hp and 600 foot-pounds of torque, produced by an 8.4L v-10 engine.

Pushrods: The mustang has its rear live axle and the corvette has its torque-converter automatic transmission. Muscle cars love outdated technology; it's what gives them their character and authenticity. SRT doubled down on its pushrods instead of redesigning. They are thickened from .6" to .8" and stiffened by 10%. It doesn't make a whole lot of practical sense but it does give the car some purity and clear clinginess to its origin.

Aero Focus: The Viper has a carbon fiber and aluminum body that lets the air slide around it and off it. The maximization of aerodynamics on this car will enable it to make the most of its power and it will improve its efficiency.

Multistage Stability Control: This will be the first viper equipped with standard stability control.

Less Weight, more Stiffness: The frame of this Viper is 50% more stiff than its predecessor. The viper uses high strength and low weight materials such as high-strength steel, magnesium, carbon fiber, and aluminum. Using materials like these has helped the Viper cut over 100 pounds.

theres a bit more if you'd like to read or see some pictures
