New Dodge Viper to Be More Mainstream

The Dodge Viper is preparing to give us a new generation next year and the carmaker is gradually letting vraious details abut the super CUT muscle car slip. The latest info on the 2013 Viper comes from Automotive News, which had the opportunity to talk to Dodge boss Reid Bigland on the Viper SRT10 topic during the LA Auto Show.
The executive told the aforementioned source that the new Viper “will appeal to a broader segment of the market” and that it’s most likely that we won’t see it at the Detroit Auto Show.

"It was a little crude in the past, and to a certain extent that was its appeal because you really needed to have your wits about you when you got behind the wheel to keep that thing on the road. And that thrill of driving a Viper was kind of unlike any other," Bigland explained.

"I think it still will be a thrilling ride with respect to the new one but offer a few more creature comforts that people come to expect in a high-performance vehicle today," he added.

However, the exectuive rushed to put out any fire that coudl be started by purists who fear that things such as stability control (Dodge had previously confimed that the Viper will be fitted with one) could alter its character: “"Those who were attracted to the Viper in the past will certainly be attracted to this new Viper. Guaranteed!"
