Gold-leafed words flaking off the smelter lips of Ralph Gilles, CEO of the SRT brand, are carrying a whisper that does not delight: the gloriously delicious SRT Viper will only be sold at from 100 to 150 of the more than 2,300 Chrysler dealers in the nation.
To earn the honor to sell such a vehicle, Gilles says that dealers have to “have the fire, the passion… that’s the unofficial requirement – that you have a love affair with the cars and you just love fast cars.”
While this passion need may knock some folks out of the running, it certainly puts this writer at the front of the pack. Mr. Gilles, I’ve got an empty bay in my two-car garage. Give me the honor of selling your supercar.
