Ferrari’s Chairman recently got up and close with the new SRT Viper at a recent board meeting. Chrysler boss Sergio Marchionne had this to say in a Detroit radio interview on Tuesday.

“The car is a superb machine,” Marchionne, the chairman and CEO of the Chrysler Group, told WJR-AM radio, according to a transcript of the interview posted on the Chrysler Web site. “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. 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 controlled by corporate parent Fiat. The 2013 Viper is powered by a 8.4L aluminum V10 engine with 640 horsepower and 600 lb-ft. of torque. It will be offered in two versions, the SRT Viper and the more track ready Viper GTS.
