2013 Dodge Viper Spied

http://www.motorauthority.com/news/1...iper-spy-shots

Can't wait to see it. Always loved the Viper more than the Corvette.

Quote:
The next-generation Dodge Viper supercar is one of the most anticipated cars of the coming year, and destined to be the crowning glory of Chryslerís rejuvenated lineup when itís unveiled for the first time early next year, but before then we have these breaking spy shots.

The spy shots depict a pair of test-mules for the future Viper, with its new front-end attached to the body of the current generation car. This is because engineers are testing air flow and cooling for the new engine, which makes sense as these prototypes were spotted in the extreme heat of Californiaís Death Valley.

The heavily masked front end reveals a few details, however, showing a slightly smaller front air dam and headlights with a more tapered back design.

Interestingly, it appears as though both the coupe and convertible chassis are being testing, suggesting that both models will be launched simultaneously. Additionally, Chryslerís engineers have also rolled out a Chevrolet Corvette to test alongside the new Viper as it is the carís number one target.

So glad to see it back. The Viper is the car that kicked off my love for automobiles back when it first came out.

That's because it's an old viper body with a different front end. It's just a mule.

Probably some LED's in headlights, hopefully more efficient engine (old one was like what, 9mpg?), BETTER INTERIOR. No need to change looks much, looks amazing as is.
