    Is This The Next Viper?

    This is going to be a bit of stretch, so bear that in mind. Hot Wheels showed off a poster showing off their 2012 lineup. One of those vehicles is reportedly the new 2013 Viper in diecast 1/43 scale.

    Squint and you can make out a long aggressive hood with a vent, gaping lower fascia, and a double-bubble roof.

    Is this the new Viper or is it a bunch of phooey? We will found out soon.

    I think i can sort of make out that the fender vents are like that on the original SR's. I like the overall shape, but it's too hard to tell.

    But Chrysler has done this exact same thing before, given die-cast companies their specs and blue prints for them to have miniatures ready for release not long after the real thing comes out. In fact, this isn't a rare occurence anymore. A lot of companies pre-release specs and blueprints to model companies, Hot Wheels, and even video game developers for their newest creations to be immortalized.

    Yes, same with accessory companies, parts suppliers, etc...there are many companies that get early access to new cars...I would think there would be NDAs involved, but there will always be leaks..

    At least from what I can make out this is better than the ugly monster Car and Driver had in last month edition saying it was the new Viper.
