DETROIT--Feb. 19, 2014: The National Automotive History Collection (NAHC) has selected the Chrysler Group's SRT (Street and Racing Technology) Viper as its "Collectible Car of the Future."

NAHC members vote annually to name the "Collectible Car of the Future" from North American-built vehicles launched during the previous calendar year. The SRT Viper was selected from 19 all-new vehicles introduced in 2013.

"We ask our members to predict which of the year's new vehicles will command the highest attention at Detroit's famous Woodward Dream Cruise 25 years from now," Charles K. Hyde, president of the NAHC Board of Trustees said. "Car enthusiasts select this award, making it unique among vehicle-of-the-year awards.

"Quite impressively this is the third time Viper has been the recipient of this award, a testament to Chrysler's visionary design team."

Ralph Gilles, president and CEO – SRT Brand and Motorsports, Chrysler Group LLC, accepted the award in ceremonies at Chrysler's Featherstone Research and Engineering Center in Auburn Hills, Michigan.

"With fewer than 30,000 Vipers built since the nameplate's launch in 1992, the Viper has earned its place as a unique, hand-built American exotic supercar," said Gilles. "The National Automotive History Collection award further recognizes the exclusivity and collectability of our flagship performance machine from Chrysler Group."

The NAHC is the world's largest collection of automotive books and historical materials, and is housed at the Skillman Branch of the Detroit Public Library. The NAHC Board of Trustees raises funds and provides volunteer assistance for the collection.
