Report: First 800 units of the 2013 SRT Viper have completely sold out

Chrysler certainly got its fair share of exposure with its bedeviling 2013 SRT Viper sports car, which went on sale last November. But if you were just in the midst of rearranging your finances to drop that down payment, unfortunately you’ll have to hit the waiting list as all initial 800 units have completely sold out.

Deliveries of the 8.4L 640hp beast are set to begin next month, reports WardsAuto. Additionally, the automobile outlet was able to get some comments from Chrysler’s SRT performance master, Ralph Gilles, including some details about when to expect the drop top version.

“We won’t wait that long,” Gilles replied, “The car was designed to be a convertible. Under the skin is a convertible chassis. It’s already there – the stiffness is there. It’s extremely easy should that come, but we’re not in any rush.”

Gilles also said that SRT considered releasing a convertible version first like the last three generation Viper’s have been introduced. But instead, they chose to release a coupe instead, in classic manufacturer fashion of putting motorsports as priority, so that the Viper could also qualify for the American Le Mans Series or ALMS. It almost gives the Viper the status of homologation status like the original BMW M3.

Homologation by definition describes the approval process of a vehicle for standardization in motorsports where a car is designed primarily for the race track with practical road use being a secondary design consideration. The results paid off as Chrysler received an invitation to the Automobile Club de l’Ouest in France in this year’s season. Two SRT Viper GTS-Rs will be set to perform in the LM GTE Pro class in June.
