As you know, the 2013 SRT Viper is the first model to be gifted with ESP and today we want to show you a set of photos that demonstrates why the supercar really needed stability control.
The adjacent images show a 2004 Dodge Viper SRT-10 that was totaled in Pennsylvania and it appears that it was all the poor traction’s fault.

The Viper was reportedly traveling within the speed limits, when the man behind the wheel swerved to avoid hitting a deer that jumped on the road. It was a cold night and, despite the moderate speed, the Viper lost traction, with the vehicle ending up crashing into multiple trees.

Even though the V10-powered supercar was trashed, nobody was injured in the crash. It’s most likely that the electronic nannies in the 2013 SRT Viper wouldn’t have let the rear end step out, so none of this would’ve probably happened.
