    2013 SRT Viper Teased!

    If you're a fan of big Mopar muscle, then the recent talk of the return of the Viper has probably given you a big reason to be excited. If so, then this teaser shot just released moments ago over on Chrysler's SRT brand's Facebook page will probably make you estastic.

    This is probably about as revealing as it's going to be until the veil is drawn back on Chrysler's V-10 powered supercar this April at the New York Auto Show. What we can tell for sure from this image is that the new Viper will probably have much of the same intimidating persona as the previous car. The headlamps will be lined with LEDs and there's a new Viper badge to feast your eyes upon.

    What will help set this Viper's new skin apart from the old one, though, will be some of the bits you can't see. For example, the new Viper will be the first to feature stability control to keep the government drones at bay. Ralph Gillies, boss of the SRT division, has also said that vastly improving the interior was a key focus point of the new car.

    There's still two short months to wait until we can see the car in the flesh, although those two months are sure to feel like forever.

    No FIAT would only spoil the look. I sure hope it is not what your seeing. April can take it's time to get here, no need to rush things, we need a cool cold winter and spring to keep the snow coming so we have a nice long ski season and we build up the snow pack so we have water for the summer. :D

    This is a good teaser for now :P

    im super excited to see the new Viper its something i look forward too with every new Gen, and i am NEVER disappointed. having a fiat mixed in would not ruin it for me one bit. i think what Fiat has added to Chrysler is Curves and that's never a bad thing. and lets not forget who Fiat owns. Ferrari. having that Italian HP and looks will be a new breath that i will drool over.

    ^ That's better than some others, but 'something to shoot for'? -No.

    An exotic sports car should be a lot more purposeful, clean & flowing; the above could be in a 4-dr sedan and has little cohesive design going on there.

    And the vents (even if they echo the awkward tails) need to go.

    For the price, it's sorely lacking IMO.

    see that interior screams sports car to me. i have no problems with the exotic leather, the carbon fiber. it has its own order and cleanliness to it. my biggest issue with the last gen viper and the gen before it was their inteiors looked like you had to be 5 foot nothing and 80 lbs to fit in it. i like the ferrari interior because it feels big. you can breathe and lets face it THIS

    The 2010 Viper got away with a stereo unit from a Neon... I'm sure buyers of the 2013 model won't mind if it's frill free.

    But it'll probably end up being a very good interior given ChryCo's recent history.

    What's coming off as 'sporty' to you in the ferrari pic?

    • • •

    I didn't like the Viper interior posted above, either. That large flat panel looks like something out of a cube van.

    • • •

    My issue is, the ferrari 599 is $410,000, yet it's interior design (materials aside) looks like it's more like $50K.

    THIS looks more like $400K IMO, can I get something expressive & unique for all that coin??:

    Pagani-Huayra-interior.jpg

    The irony in my example, of course, is that interior is in a car that costs $1000K.... :P

    Maybe my entire scale is just... OFF. :duck:

    the things that come off sporty to me are the curves, the two tone leather, the CF accents. its just is sporty. not much else to it. the cost is so high in the Ferrari because of material the fine leathers, and what not. you don't have to do that. but make it look nice. you can reflect the Ferrari interior in looks without reflecting the cost. and also you have to remember when it comes to buying a Ferrari you are buying a name. Ferrari makes their cars so expensive because they can. people dont need a Ferrari they want one. and when it comes to wants you will find that the price tag will be whatever the maker wants it to be. my whole point is that dodge can get pointers from Ferrari on what people like in their cars. they then can take that advice and spruce up the viper interior. im not saying take a Ferrari interior and put it in a viper.

    Well, if you boil it down, the vents are plundered from the second-gen Neon and first-gen Jeep Liberty. The HVAC control panel is from a Dodge Dakota. The turn signal and wiper stalks are, once again, from the Jeep Liberty. The radio was used in every early Daimler-era Chrysler ever built, same for the window switches. The power mirror controls were also -- yep! -- yanked from the Jeep Liberty.

    It's a parts bin interior. That's something Chrysler is going to avoid at all costs for the new Viper. It's a car costing $90k and it'll have an interior appropriate for a car of its price class.

    the ZB's interior was always pretty boring, but it was supposed to be minimalist, or at least evoke minimalism. The I'm also not a fan of the Fezza's interior. It may scream sports car, I'll give you that, bit it also seems incoherently busy. At least the Pagani's had a theme running about, but that interior is also really busy...then again that's the Pagani's hallmark, part of it's charm.

    I really wish Ferraris would return to classical form instead of looking like a Korean cyborg with four wheels and a screaming engine. Granted they look badass, but Ferraris are supposed to be beautiful. We already have Lamborghini covering "badass."

    How I long for classic Pininfarina beauty.

    I do not mind the minal interior of the old vipers, after all it was to be a driving machine, not a cruzing machine. I do agree with everyone that in an auto like this, the interior should be unique.

    In regards to the dancing ponies, I have yet to find any of their cars beautiful and the interiors just do nothing for me.

    Lambo on the other hand is drop dead sexy. :P

    to be the viper means being the best that dodge can put out. the best that CHRYSLER can put out. that includes not only outside looks, power all that, it also includes the interior. the reason i am pushing this so much is that i already know its going to look good on the outside and be a powerhouse. same as always, what they need to do is update the interior. again im not saying throw a Ferrari interior in the car im saying use Ferrari knowledge on interiors and make an interior fitting for the viper. a super car should be just that super. and in my opinion that should include the interior as well.

    ...seriously? Nothin'? :blink:

    .

    Yup, some nice cars but none of them I would want or says drive me. I would rather drive my Trailblazer SS over any of these.

    Growing up watching Magnum PI the car was no big deal, but the Girls and story lines :)

    Growing up watching Cannonball run, I finally found my dream car, The Lambo, Girls extra ;)

    Over all, I understand what you find beautiful and lust to drive is different than what I find beautiful and lust to drive. Enjoy your prancing ponies, I will enjoy my American muscle and the Lambo's, they are HOT! :P

    that's cool. I'm a fan of Lambos too, I just like them a different way. Like the Ferrari is the hot girl you're too scared to ask out, and the Lambo is the girl in your clique that's pretty but she can still kick your ass. :P

    The American Muscle is the cute girl next door you've known forever and you'd probably be more likely to ask her out. :D

    literally the perfect analogy

    • Just because YOU judge the Hummer EV harshly because its not an efficient EV, doesnt make your opinion a correct one.  Your opinion is shyte and false. Your judgment is wrong and stupid.  Ditto for everything else that I just mentioned.  Dodge Hellcat offers a track mode. Its a good enough track car. The Hellcat is not THE best track car around, because it does NOT have the right engineering components for it to be.  YOU know that ESPECIALLY as a car enthusiast that you are.  But you will say ANYTHING just to be a contrarian to what the CORRECT response should be.  You do you.   As far as the EV rent-a-car thing goes. 250-320 mile range gets you driving in a city for about 4 days without recharging.  Same as a a gas powered car.  When vacationing, one also walks in a city of vacation to get to actually see the phoquing city.  Boston, New York, Montreal, Houston, Los Angeles, Chicago, ALL have GREAT restaurants.  AWESOME shopping quarters.  Boston, New York, Montreal all have GREAT historic sites that walking is the ONLY way of exploring.   Driving is NOT an option when doing these things.  The EV, if need be, gets to be charged during THIS time period when exploring the vacationing destination on foot therefore no time wasted on your part charging the EV... Going to the beach in Greece or Miami or South Carolina...the EV is just used getting to the beach. For 3-4 hours, you are swimming and playing water games and eating on the boardwalk. The EV gets to be charged during this time... Going to Disneyworld or Land in Anaheim or Orlando or any other theme park. If you dont hotel in the park itself and have to drive there, the EV gets charged while you explore the theme park. Its fair to say that one spends a good 6 hours at these parks...  Plenty of time to get a FULL charge. As with ALL scenarios I mentioned... Full charge means 250-320 mile range...  YOU know that as YOU have mentioned that to several posters that may have range anxiety about 250-320 mile ranges...   That would be 3-4 days of driving great distances per day.  Vacation time is usually 2 weeks...   Walking and exploring on foot is done probably MOST of that 2 week span.  Even if one goes to Montreal and then wants to go to Quebec City.  One walks downtown Montreal. Then one walks Old Montreal. The EV is fully charged and no need to charge up going to Quebec City.  One charge. When one gets to Quebec City, one recharges the EV. But one WALKS to see Quebec City. No need to drive as Quebec is small and quaint.  On that same charge, one goes back to Montreal, back to the hotel.  One charges up the EV while fine ding in Montreal and 250-320 mile range is at your disposal again. One gets to drive 3-4 days before one gets to leave to go back home.  Montreal's airport is less than 15 miles away from the downtown core anyway...  15 miles...    250-320 mile range for the average EV in 2022... Again... your judgement is wrong. Whether you are being a contrarian, obtuse on purpose or just forgetful on some facts and dont apply them properly, your opinion is shyte and false. Your judgment is wrong and stupid and its annoying as phoque when the same shyte is spewed by you time and time again...   
    • What in the fck are you talking about?  Agree to disagree, I just don't think that's a good application for EV adaption.    It's a vehicle sold to the public. It isn't a commercial-only vehicle. David posted the article (which was just a link to the actual article. I'm not sure why he didn't just post the actual article.) and I laughed at the inefficiency of it. Just because they're not advertising it as efficient doesn't mean efficiency doesn't matter, hence the artlcie written AND David's link about it's efficiency.  Why not get on David for posting a link to ANYTHING related to the Hummer's efficiency? If the efficiency doesn't matter, why even post an article about it?  Oh, I'm sorry Dodge literally advertises their vehicle to be track capable. Do I need to post the screen shots from their own website again or are you just going to dismiss them as if the company isn't advertising it as a track car?  So, on one hand you're saying that the company needs to advertise the vehicle to do a thing(efficiency - Hummer) but on the other hand if the company does advertise the vehicle to do a thing (track capable - Hellcat Challenger) you'll dismiss it because you don't see it as a track-ready car.  I guess you're just trying to have it both ways. 
    • You are just a contrarian... Nobody is DEBATING that it is atrocious.  Because it IS. But what the Hummer EV is NOT, and NEVER was meant to be, nor was it EVER marketed as such, the Hummer ICE or EV was never a Prius from Toyota... I dont care what you would say about a 1000hp/tq getting 8 mpg.   But its comically hypocritical of you to bash the EV Hummer in this way and downright Fox News style, Tucker Carlson/Kellyanne Conway/Alex Jones/ misinformation/alternative facts messed up opinion is what you are doing right now.  Same as the Hertz EV rent-a-car... Its annoying as hell what you are doing.  Judge the phoquing thing as as what it is, NOT for what it isnt...  Its the same phoquing thing when we debated about the Dodge Challenger Hellcat and Tesla Model S Plaid not being track cars and you slyly and connivingly tried to troll your way in telling me I should have a problem with Dodge because they offer in the TV screen thing an option called "track mode" on the Hellcat... But hey...you do you.   PS    
    • Well stated Oldshurst.. Now.. Motorweek did say when they reviewed the 1992 Oldsmobile Eighty Eight that it looked like an Infiniti in the rear:     When I see Infinti Q45, I see what Oldsmobile Aurora was aiming for and how GM was trying to turn the Oldsmobile brand to a import fighter:  
    • Regardless, it's still atrocious. I'd say the same thing if it were an ICE with 1000hp/tq getting 8mpg. It's one of those vehicles that's comically inefficient.
