2013 Dodge Viper

The next-geneartion Dodge Viper is ready to hit the roads next year – but developing the new 2013 mode year Viper SRT wasn’t that easy for the folks over at Chrysler Group LLC. What was the biggest issue? Suppliers.

According to Ralph Gilles, who heads Chrysler’s design organization and SRT group, many suppliers said “thanks, but no thanks” when the automaker knocked on their doors.

“It has been tough to get low-volume suppliers,” Gilles says. “We have had a few hiccups here and there as we get suppliers. That type of fringe business has really dwindled. A lot of people are looking for big accounts now, but now that is behind us.”

Gilles said that the redesigned Viper will be unveiled during the first quarter of 2012. He would not reveal specifics. We’re guessing it will debut at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show.
