The 2013 SRT Viper GTS arrives in 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.
