First SRT Viper 545x315 at First Production SRT Viper Delivered   Video

In a special ceremony held at the 2013 SRT Viper’s production plant at the Conner Assembly in Detroit, the very first production version of the car was handed over to its owner. Scott Thomas, of Oklahoma City is the lucky guy who got this unique car sporting VIN #001. He paid $300,000 for this Viper in a Barrett-Jackson auction last year, benefiting the Austin Hatcher Foundation. Sweet deal.

Some high-profile guests attended the handover ceremony, including Sergio Marchionne, Chairman and CEO, Chrysler Group LLC and Ralph Gilles, President and CEO SRT Brand.

2013 SRT Viper is powered by a massive 8.4 liter V10 engine, developing 640 horsepower and 600 lb.-ft. of torque – the most torque of any naturally aspirated sports car engine in the world. It is made from a blend of carbon-fiber and aluminum; it is more aerodynamic and quieter than the old model; and has safety features such as electronic multistage stability control, traction control and new 4-channel antilock brake system (ABS).

Do not think for a minute the Viper’s gone soft though. Check out a review of the car here.
