The 2013 SRT Viper GTS from Forza Motorsport 4

The 2013 SRT Viper GTS arrives in Forza Motorsport 4

This morning, the 2013 SRT Viper GTS became available to the gaming public as the new SRT Viper Pack arrived in the marketplace of Xbox 360’s simulation racing game Forza Motorsport 4.

Unlike the majority of downloadable content packages (DLC) which come with a price, the 2013 SRT Viper pack is free to Forza Motorsport 4 gamers – although buying the car in-game will cost you 95,000 FM4 credits. Surprisingly, the new Viper Pack in the Xbox 360 Marketplace only includes the one car and the Forza 4-sponsored 2013 Viper GTS-R headed for the American LeMans series is not included but for a free DLC package…we don’t have any complaints.

The 2013 SRT Viper GTS in Forza Motorsport 4 is an S Class vehicle with a vehicle rating of 638. In stock form, the 640 horsepower 2013 Viper GTS offers a speed rating of 9.0, a handling rating of 6.1, an acceleration rating of 8.6, a launch rating of 7.9 and a braking rating of 6.0 – all out of a possible ten. For comparison, the 2012 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 is an S Class vehicle with an overall rating of 633 and while the ZR1 is one of my favorite cars on the game – the new 2013 Viper GTS is a much better car in the game. I play Forza Motorsport 4 with the traction and stability programs off and with the ZR1, coming out of a corner under hard throttle can be a bit of a challenge as the super Vette is more than willing to break traction but the 2013 SRT Viper is a far easier car to drive (again, in the virtual world) than the ZR1.
