SRT Viper Not Coming to Europe
We say the Viper's outrageously-large displacement 8.4-liter V10 engine is also cause for concern, and while it does comply with the strictest of emissions regulations, perhaps it would be very difficult to certify for use on European roads - again, this is just speculation.
This all means that they will allow Chevrolet to sell the Corvette free of fuss, from 2014 onward, sources say.
Its base price of $97,395 would have undoubtedly gone up considerably, pushing it closer to $130,000 - $140,000 once it reaches European shores. It is still a very attractive performance package for the price, and it would keep up with Ferraris costing twice as much, with the 640 hp and 814 Nm the driver has at his or her disposal.
Perhaps they will change their mind in years to come, if the Corvette, which will even be made in right-hand drive form in around two-years' time.
