Da Viper is coming, and it doesn’t vant to vipe your vindows, either. Obscure G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero reference aside, Dodge SRT has been teasing us with vague images of the next-generation 2013 Viper as well as its new logo in preparation for the vehicle's launch in April at the 2012 New York International Auto Show.
The first image previewed its headlamps, hood scoop, and double-bubble roof; all of the visible parts resemble and obviously pay homage to the the Vipers of yore. The contents of the second image, which Dodge just released on its Facebook page, are much more ambiguous and up for debate. SRT has also previewed the car’s new emblem, which is labeled the “Stryker” badge.
Rumors have the Viper’s V-10 engine increasing from 8.4 to a whopping 8.7 liters. Traction control is standard, but we don’t know if even that will be enough to tame this wild beast.
