NAHC Collectible Car Award Goes to Chrysler Group’s SRT Viper

The National Automotive History Collection (NAHC) selects the Chrysler Group’s SRT Viper as its “Collectible Car of the Future.”  The members vote once a year on this award from North American built vehicles launched during the previous year.  The Viper was selected from 19 cars vehicles introduced in 2013.

"We ask our members to predict which of the year's new vehicles will command the highest attention at Detroit's famous Woodward Dream Cruise 25 years from now," Charles K. Hyde, president of the NAHC Board of Trustees said.  "Car enthusiasts select this award, making it unique among vehicle-of-the-year awards.  Quite impressively this is the third time Viper has been the recipient of this award, a testament to Chrysler's visionary design team."

Ralph Gilles, president and CEO – SRT Brand and Motorsports, Chrysler Group LLC, accepted the award in ceremonies at Chrysler's Featherstone Research and Engineering Center in Auburn Hills, Michigan.  "With fewer than 30,000 Vipers built since the nameplate's launch in 1992, the Viper has earned its place as a unique, hand-built American exotic supercar," said Gilles. "The National Automotive History Collection award further recognizes the exclusivity and collectability of our flagship performance machine from Chrysler Group."

The 2013 version of the SRT Viper is more powerful with an all-aluminum 8.4 liter mid front V10 engine.  This bad boy delivers 640 hp and 600 lb. ft. of torque.  That is the most torque of any naturally aspirated sports car engine in the world.
