Just last month Chrysler's SRT division served up their first teaser image of the upcoming all-new Viper, cloaked ominously in the shadows. Well, SRT now reckon the time is right to charm the big snake into the light and give us the first glimpse of its new, shiny skin.
Okay, not exactly. While the Viper has finally slithered into the light, we're still just as much in the dark as we were before. What we can tell for sure from the newest teaser SRT just released over on their Facebook page is that we're looking at a scoop that's been crafted from carbon fiber. Since it is a carbon fiber scoop on a V-10-powered serpent, we can assume it probably directs cool air somewhere, maybe to the engine, maybe to the brakes. Oh, it’s also been painted red.
We should know what sort of function the scoop serves in April at the New York Auto Show, where SRT is planning to officially pull the wraps off of the new Viper. Until then, we’re free to debate on what exactly we’re looking at and continue to wait out the next few weeks in slow agony.
