MotorTrend Coupe article

"SRT plans to offer more owner customization options; special interior stitching exterior stripes, color combos, wheel options and special models to follow."

umm where the FUCK is more power and less weight?

Dan Knott aslo was quoted as saying regarding the brake lights on the new coupe....

"Those semi-retro lights are deeply shrouded by the rear fenders - My favourite part of the styling, we're the only outfit that would have the guts to do that"

Is he fucking serious????? Seriously???? The only god damn reason the Coupe got those lights was to save costs and nothing more. They are not "retro" they are shit. No other design element of the old coupe was included in the redesign.. why is this???


This only further proves what a joke the Viper has become and how pathetic the whole SRT organization is as a whole.

Riddle me this, doesn't "SRT" stand for "street and racing technology," and how are any of those "features" relevant to the very name of their group?

Re: MotorTrend Coupe article

if the stiching is red then red = speed.

That's what they learned from their drifting fan base focus groups. Personally I think it was money well spent.

Re: MotorTrend Coupe article

In the new Viper magazine that I got in the mail a couple of days ago, there was an article by the lead design guy on the new coupe. In it, he acknowledges the uproar and is almost apologetic about the rear end of the coupe and acknowledges that much of the rear design had to do with budget considerations. Pretty fucked up.

I'm surprised the DC gestapo let that get published!

Re: MotorTrend Coupe article

Craig, it's actually MUCH worse than that. In the SAME ISSUE, another egomaniacal SRT executivein a 'Q&A' type article accompanied by a half page picture of himself said something to the effect that they asked the Viper faithful if they would like a paddle shifted transmission in the new coupe, but that they said they wanted more robust, slicker shifting.

So basically, in their mad rush to grab a piece of the spotlight, they are saying they had enough development money to consider a paddle shifted transmission, but not enough to develop a proper rear for the car. RIIIGHT.

They are just waiting for the day they can essential re-skin the "old" SL platform and make it into the new Viper. They did it with the old E-class that became the 300C/Magnum/Charger.

Hello s/c V8 and no manual tranny options!

Well, I have to think the Viper would be fan-fuckin-tastic with the SL600's TT V-12 engine. Easy 700 hp and 900 tq.

Oh it would, but then it wouldn't be much of a "Viper" anymore. SL's are heavy bitches as well...and pricy!
