If you leave the Chariman of Ferrari, Luca Cordero di Montezemolo, speechless after he checks out your new car, you know you’re doing something right.

According to Chrysler CEO Sergio Marhchionne, after seeing the new 2013 SRT Viper, Ferrari’s di Montezemolo was ‘speechless.’

Check out more news on the SRT Viper.

“I had the chairman of Ferrari down here for the board meeting last week and he had a chance to look at the car, and he was speechless,” Marchionne said in an interview with Detroit radio WJR-AM. “I mean, for Ferrari to admit that the car is a unique vehicle is a hell of a compliment to the work that’s gone on here. So I’m delighted. I mean, so far, knock on wood, we’re doing well.”

Ferrari and Chrysler are both owned by parent company Fiat and Marchionne is di Montezemolo’s boss.

Refresher: Power for the 2013 SRT Viper comes from an all-aluminum, mid-engine 8.4-liter V10 that makes 640 horsepower and 600 lb-ft of torque. The engine is mated to a Tremec TR6060 6-speed manual transmission with a shorter throw shifter, closer gear ratios and a final drive ratio that has been shortened to 3.55 from 3.07.
