Re: New 2013 SRT Viper

After the Beamer, I was afraid someone was trying to make the Viper electric.

I'm old school, love my clutch and stick, but I have to admit that today's automatics are superior to the standards in so many ways. I couldn't see if the automatic is going to be an option or replacement leaving all future Vipers clutchless. I really hope not, If the Lottery Gods ever bless their grace on me (or my mother-in-law doesn't leave all her money to some charity when she *ahem* permanently decides to stop tormenting me), I would like to own one of those.

I think you can rest easy Cat going by this " Worried about the “automatic” transmission? Don’t be, Ralph will not dilute the Viper one bit. Promise. " Looks like you will still have your manual box .

Yeah, I saw that, still doesn't say if it's tap shifting or stomp the clutch shifting.

Re: New 2013 SRT Viper

As you suggest , may be a Tiptronic gearbox rather than a full manual .Time will tell . If you win the lottery I'm sure they will oblige you with a stick shift as I believe you guys call a manual box .
