Reader renders 2013 SRT Viper
Posted Feb 24th 2012 7:01PM
While we wait for the unveiling of the 2013 SRT Viper, the inevitable speculation over what it's going to look like continues. In broad terms, we already know what we're going to get in the third generation of Chrysler's flagship sports car. We've seen enough teases, blurry Hot Wheels photos and spy shots to know that the final product is going to look like, well, a Viper – long hood, wide stance, massive grille, big wheels.
Ah, but the details. The big questions concerning what's under the hood and performance specs and such won't truly be answered until Chrysler actually rolls out some real cars. But perhaps more importantly, we do have a good sense of the Viper's new face. Its triangular headlights and triple hood scoops look to raise the aggro level, and those features have been nicely illustrated by one of our readers.
Spen Oner created the rendering you see above, using that Hot Wheels image as its basis. As we noted in our original post about the Hot Wheels car, the wheels are a bit over-sized, and the angle of the shot only accentuates that. We also know that there will be something other than gaping black space in the grille area, as we've seen a stylized version of Dodge's crosshair grille in the shots of what we think are production molds for the hood and front end.
Thanks to Spen Oner and stay tuned for more news. We promise we'll do out best to make you sick of the Viper before it's even released!
