There’s no doubt that one of the most hotly anticipated cars to rise from the ashes of the Detroit auto implosion is the 2013 SRT Viper. On this week’s show, we get down to brass tacks and talk to the man behind the two-seat beast. And, that man is none other than the President and CEO of the SRT Brand, Ralph Gilles. We’ll be getting all of the details about the fierce new snake, where the SRT brand is going, and we’ll ask what we can expect next from Chrysler’s rising star. To discuss this and more, John McElroy is joined in studio by co-host Peter De Lorenzo, the Autoextremist, and Chris Paukert from Autoblog. Plus, find out which five lucky people will win copies of the book Engines of Change.
