SRT Viper Sneak Peak with Loads of Carbon Fiber

Its that time of year again where everyone is getting ready to spend a week of their life in fabulous Las Vegas, staring at the industries most well equipped vehicles. Queue music… Its SEMA! For the rest of us not able to make the trek to car Mecca, we live vicariously through blogs and forums showcasing pictures and videos. So we are starting ours off ahead of the curve. Here is a sneak peak of our 2013 SRT Viper with all its new carbon fiber upgrades that will be debuting at the Seibon booth. Having Seibon as a partner last year with our BMW M5 F10, we wanted to go that extra step for this years event. Upgrades from Seibon include a carbon fiber hood, carbon fiber front lip, carbon fiber canards, carbon fiber side skirts, carbon fiber diffuser, carbon fiber tail light surround, and carbon fiber wing. One thing to note with the carbon fiber hood is Seibon’s ability to have a custom weave done that allows this giant hood to be done as 1 piece. The top and bottom are not seamed at all which from a production aspect is quite an accomplishment.

Along with the Niche wheels, Pirelli tires, Agency Power intake and exhaust this already equipped boss machine just became that much more awesome. You might be thinking, “yeah thats a lot of carbon”. But don’t worry we will have a surprise instore for those that go to the show!

Check out this sneak peak video and pics by Cody Gephart.

The hood with fully exposed cf doesn't look too good because the hood stretches to the fender IMO.

Car's a beast though!

Vipers never had my attention. Just something about american muscle isn't appealing to me.

Vipers are my favorite car of all time but that thing is butt ass ugly with all the carbon fiber on it.

Look at the gaps where the hood meets the body. The fitment looks very poor. Don't get me wrong I love the general design and look but the fitment turns me off.

Wasn't the Viper's hood already CF from the factory? I'll be going to driving down to Sema, maybe I'll see you guys. I like the trap music beat on the video haha

Ditto. I specially don't like the newer generations of American muscle, although the power is there, the look is just horrid.
