2013 SRT Viper Faces Motor Trend’s Testing Procedures
The J-Turn: Episode 12
On this episode of The J-Turn, I bring you a firsthand look at the instrumented testing procedures that each new vehicle undergoes. Using the 2013 SRT Viper to demonstrate each aspect of the test, I first meet up with Motor Trend’s Testing Director, Kim Reynolds, to experience the vehicle dynamics through the Figure 8. Then, I head over to the drag strip with Scott Mortara for acceleration testing, where together we show that properly launching a car requires much more than simply stepping on the gas. See how the manual transmission, 640 horsepower SRT Viper behaves when put through its paces, and find out how well we’re able to launch the 10-cylinder beast.
