One of the best thing about being the president of a car maker is being able to take whatever car you want for a spin. If you’re Ralph Giles, the president and CEO of the SRT brand, that means you have access to the brand new prototype for the 2013 SRT Viper. That also means that every driver on the road you pass by gets to be incredibly jealous of you.
The Detroit Free Press is reporting that Ralph Giles decided to take the new Viper for a spin on the freeway. It shouldn’t come as a surprise that commuters were shocked to see it speeding by. “With the modern-day cell phones everyone was almost crashing into me trying to take pictures,” Giles said.
The rebirth of the Dodge Viper and Dart are the big talk of the auto world this year. The Viper has been gone from the public since 2010, when it was discontinued out of the financial woes that Dodge was facing. Fiat becoming a the controlling shareholder is what helped get the Viper back on the roads. The new 2013 Viper will be available to people who are not the head of Dodge in the fourth quarter of this year.
