The "brutal beast" has come far, says UK-based Autoblog. Fully revamped, the new 2013 SRT Viper is the most refined the line has ever seen. 20 years since birth, it finally has stability control, cruise control, and seats that won't make you cringe at the prospect of more than 30 minutes in the saddle. The control is most important. Autoblog notes, "It's a Viper that should actually be used on the road." Past steering issues, "frankly, lethal," are vastly improved and interior refinement brings it up to speed with Continental counterparts. Still, the Viper hasn't lost its brutish looks, which (after all) is most of the charm.
