Ralph Gilles is America
Many car guys know Ralph Gilles. He and his team (many CIA grads on that team), get to work on some pretty cool SRT vehicles, most notably the Viper.
I have always respected Ralph, because he really does have a passion for the performance car. He was the lead and mentor for my Chrysler internship. We had the chance to go to the track during our internship and I experienced a few hot laps in his personal Viper firsthand, the man can drive.
It isn't a Corvette, it isn't a 911, it's a Viper and that is all that it has to be. You have to love a company that stands behind people who produce cars like this, because they make no sense, but all the sense in the world. Here's my little hat tip Ralph and his team. I know the bullshit you guys have to fight through to get this car into production. Cheers to you and your team, insanity is alive and well at Chrysler! AMERICA
