German-based importer considers bringing a limited number of cars to Europe, prices forecast to start at around £120,000

The 2013 SRT Viper might make its way to Europe after all, with a substantial price tag of £120,067.

Despite Chrysler confirming earlier this year that the Viper wouldn't be available in Europe, Munich-based importer GeigerCars says it will import a small number of models to Germany.

Internet rumours price the imported Vipers at £120,067 — considerably more expensive than the £64,632 the Viper costs in the US.

Chrysler said it wanted to focus its resources on making sure the model was received well in its home market. It also cited unfavourable exchange rates and continuing economic uncertainty as reasons for not bringing the car to Europe.

Double the price, really?? How can it cost about £60,000 to import one, I remember a few years back Autocar bought a Mustang from a dealer in Manhattan and had it shipped over, I can't remember the exact cost but I am sure it wasn't double the price.

I don't think people who will buy this car could care for 'large' panel gaps. This car is for fun, not for being the last world in luxury. Also, consider the exchange, tax, shipping, registration etc...

I'd be happy with a £500 Ford Fiesta

    A satisfying rework of the X3 that usefully improves its handling, cabin finish, space and connectivity to make this BMW a class front-runner again

    Off-road estate is now bigger, more spacious and available with torque-vectoring all-wheel drive, but is it enough to make its German rivals anxious?
