    1) Slightly more
    2) Didn't measure the show car. Too soon to tell you.
    3) Aftermarket height adjustable coilovers.
    4) When Ralph says we can!

    For the time being, development of the Pirelli tires was focused only on the Gen 5 Viper.

    Less plastic and more high quality materials. Both the SRT and GTS will be hand wrapped. SRT will be wrapped in a high quality PUR and GTS will come in two different leather (Nappa and Laugna Soft leather)
    How will the SRT interior differ from the GTS interior? How will the Gen V appeal to those of us who prefer the Viper to be raw/basic/nasty?[/QUOTE]

    I just got off the phone with a Viper tech/engine builder who couldn't be on the live chat. He asked who is in charge of the new Viper Tech program?

    JJ,

    See our answer to post #9...because it wasn’t easy to get what we did! If we could have made more, we would have!

    Yes there will be a 2013 brochure and we will sell it on http://www.srtshop.com/welcome.asp. Thanks for the complement on the 2010 book. We actually won a national marketing award for that book.

    1 and 2: Sorry - it's too early to discuss performance numbers

    3: Too soon to say. Suspension tuning is not yet finalized.

    4: Yes, we considered it. Never say never.

    5: Launch control is not adjustable.

    6: The halfshafts might tolerate 1000 HP with a 1.5 final drive!

    Great news! And thanks for answering all these questions.

    Any chance the Gen V window regulator will be compatible with the Gen III/IV?

    Chelsea,

    We will officially rate the engine just prior to V1 with a random production engine. The rating could go up, could go down but we would expect 640 to be the number.

    Pricing has not yet been finalized on the Vipers for any country, so we can’t answer that question yet. Since it hasn’t been finalized, I have no idea where $137K came from.

    It was great to see Pirelli reps in NYC. Says a lot.

    We learned how to look for the "C-1" designation going back to the 18" Gen 2 Pilot Sports to know they were the Viper Specific model.

    Anything to be looking for on the new Pirelli tires or are all of them in this size/model Viper specific?


    Look forward to seeing you at VOI-12 this fall.

    - We are looking at the carbon fiber rear applique to be an option on the GTS model. The body color painted rear applique will be standard on the SRT Viper and a black painted rear applique will be standard on the GTS Viper model.
    - We are still calibrating the LC on the vehicle.
    - The TC system, even in 'Full On', will be very satisfying for most drivers. In 'Full Off' mode, there will be no intervention whatsoever. The GTS model will get two more modes: Sport (with more aggressive TC and ESC) and Track mode (with agreessive ESC and no TC). We are still tuning and calibrating all of the modes but rest assured that we are putting a big focus on getting all of the modes right.
    - The weight distribution will be very close to 50/50. The addition of carbon fiber upper body panels lowered the center of gravity and moved the F/R bias slightly forward, compared to Gen 4.
    - The vehicle set of the Track Pack optional wheel will be lighter than the previous ACR/Sidewinder wheel.

    The Pirelli tires were specifically designed for thé gen V I understand from Ralf Gilles presentation with specific compound from to back!

    How would these tires work on a gen IV ?

    You will not be dissappointed with the Pirelli Pzero Corsa (track tire option) in the dry (or the wet) vs the Cups.

    Color samples will be available later this year. There are four colors Black, Red, Caramel, and Sepia.

    With the revised cooling system, so you still plan to run the Gen V engine at the same temp as previous generations? What will the normal range be and fan on point?

    the glass is different, door entry is different. We did not look for compatibility.

    The seat belts are on the outboard side of the seat. They are the same as Gen 4.

    Brent,

    Only you would ask a question like this! The oil flow in the engine is unchanged from Gen IV, the filter could handle significantly more flow. The most interesting lubrication question is probably a new oil for SRT products, the new Pennzoil Ultra synthetic 0W-40. Shell/Pennzoil was a great partner for us in developing this new oil just for us! The new oil is a low friction high detergent product that is suitable for older snakes as well!

    This would land squarely in the "can't talk about future product" category. ;)

    What ride/handling changes can be attributed to the change from Michelin to Pirelli tires.

    What advantages drove the changes as opposed to the Pilot Super Sports?

    No certificates (talked about this one earlier). It looks like we will be able to give VCA members priority on builds, so if you put your up-to-date VCA member number on your order, then we will move it to the front of the line. Can't talk about roadsters yet.

    You can if you wish. Mobil 1 is great stuff! The Pennzoil is great stuff too, and we were able to be involved in the formulation specifically for SRT engines.
