Back in January, Chrysler announced that the new-generation SRT Viper would not be offered in Europe. However, this doesn’t mean the European customers won’t be able to drive one! The problem is that they will need to opt for an unofficially imported Viper.
U.S. car specialist, GeigerCars, announced recently it will import the new Viper and will put it on sale at a price of €139,900 (around $180,500).
Yes, you read it right: that’s almost double an American customer has to pay for a standard Viper, which is priced at $97,395. We are not sure how many units GeigerCars will import, but there will certainly be plenty of Viper-hungry Europeans standing in line to pick one up.
After all, who would turn down the opportunity to be one of the few people in your region to own one of the best sports cars launched in the past year?

The new Viper is powered by an all-new 8.4-liter V-10 engine that delivers a total of 640 horsepower and 600 pound-feet of torque. The new engine will be mated to an improved Tremec TR6060 six-speed manual transmission and will sprint the Viper to 60 mph in low-3-second range.
Top speed is about 206 mph and the Viper clears the 1/4-mile in the mid-11-second range.
The new Viper is offered in two trim levels; the base model is priced at $97,395 and Viper GTS comes in at $120,395.
