If you were born a gearhead, Ralph Gilles is essentially who you wanted to be when you grew up. Like most of us, Ralph started drawing cars when he was young, unlike most of us he turned that passion into a job at Chrysler where he became a break out star following the design of the company's extremely successful Chrysler 300. From there they promoted him a few more times to his current job as President and CEO of the SRT Brand and Motorsports as well as Senior Vice President of Product Design for all of Chrysler.
What does that mean? Right now it means convincing people to look at the 2013 SRT Viper, a task that only rivals persuading people to breathe oxygen instead of sand.
