SRT Viper praises and quips Corvette

After seeing the new Viper skating in sales in the months following its release, the CEO of SRT Ralph Gilles, ensured that there was no reason for concern, since the company had a long queue of orders formed by interested in taking the sport to house. If it is difficult to tell if the Viper will be a sales success, it is certain that the coupe will face tough competition from the new Chevrolet Corvette. Less for Gilles.

"Never try to be a Corvette, and we will never be. Our car is handmade. 18 hours are needed to paint the decorative bands of each Viper. Each vehicle receives a layer of sand blasting, inside and out, before being painted. All panels and pieces are finished flawlessly. We tried to make a custom car you can buy. We make disposable cars ", caused the CEO, in an interview with Automotive News agency.

Gilles also said the program test drive conducted by the SRT is helping many clients to understand the spirit of the new Viper. "Unfortunately, many people think the car is a mere evolution of the former, and that is wrong. This is a completely new machine, all done by hand, "he said.

When asked if the mark loses many customers for not offering the option of automatic transmission Gilles says the company is not developing this type of exchange at the time, but "does not rule out that possibility." However, the executive said that offering manual transmission was defined by a purely emotional issue rather than marketing.
