Rumours have been going arround quite a lot lately about Chrysler planning an increase in displacement for the 2013 Dodge Viper. Due to the Dodge obsession the crew at Allpar happily owns we were able to find out that the vehicle’s V10 engine may jump from 8.4 liters to 8.7, making it the largest lump Chrysler has ever placed in a passenger car. Even though Allpar doesn’t say exactly where the report originates from, upping the vehicle’s displacement certainly fits the brash character of the Viper.
Nevertheless, it is quite curious the solution the company willcome out with regarding all the issues about fuel consumption and emissions, in a time when companies like Mercedes-Benz fight for reducing them.
Accordingto the same report, the vehicle will be manufactured in 2012 as 2013 model, which is deffinitely contrary to the other rumours we have heard, about the Viper 2013 receiving a secret unveil at a Florida charity event.
Either way, we will make sure of finding the accurate information regarding all these whispers that have been going around, and obviously, keep you posted. As soon as a new scoop arrives, be sure we will be ready to pass it on.
