A Chrysler spokesman has confirmed the 2013 SRT Viper will not be available in Europe.
There were some rumors and speculations about the new Viper not reaching the old continent which have now been confirmed by an unnamed spokesman at Chrysler who refused to explain this surprising decision. Apparently, Chrysler wants to focus its available resources on successfully launching the new model in the U.S.
Other reasons could include the problematic new car market in Europe, unfavorable exchange rates, as well as the continent's economical and financial issues. In addition, Chrysler's dealer network in Europe is quite weak which means that if they will bring the SRT Viper, it will have to be sold next to Fiat, Alfa Romeo and Lancia models. A Viper sitting next to a Fiat Panda wouldn't inspire much confidence.
