Article file under

If you can't wait to get your hands on the 2013 SRT Viper, you'd better get used to twiddling your thumbs unless you're a member of the Viper Club of America.

According to MSNBC, initial sales of the highly-anticipated model will be restricted to loyal customers. This is a nice way of rewarding previous clients and will likely ensure the first batch of production vehicles doesn't end up on eBay with a huge mark-up.

As we have previously reported, the 2013 SRT Viper will debut at the New York Show before being launched later this year. Specifications remain a mystery, but rumors suggest the car will have an 8.7-liter V10 engine with more than 600 hp (450 kW / 608 PS) and 560 lb-ft (760 Nm) of torque.

Latest 2013 ferrari 599 prototype spy photos in Maranello

Here are the latest spy photos of the Ferrrari 599 replacement, codenamed F152, taken during some tests on public roads as well as the famous Ferrari entrance in Maranello.

As previously reported, the F152 is rumored to forgo a carbon fiber body, like the ones found in the Lamborghini Aventador and McLaren MP4-12C, in favor of an aluminum body structure due to high construction costs and little benefit to performance.

Speculated to carry the name F620, the new front-engine rear-wheel drive supercar will be based on the new Ferrari FF and use the same 6.3-liter V12 engine and seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox. Power output is expected to increase from the FF's 660 PS (485 kW / 651 hp) to 710 PS (522 kW / 700 bhp).

The F620 is expected to have it world premiere at the Geneva Motor Show in early March.
