The Drive SRT Facebook page is spending this entire week taking a look at how the interior of the 2013 SRT Viper went from a handful of crude doodles to the sexy production cockpit featured in the Mopar supercars in production right now. In addition to posting images each day of the steps required to go from a sketch on paper to a production interior, the Drive SRT FB page has quotes from Klaus Busse, head of interior design at Chrysler Group to accompany each image.
Drive SRT started showing off the design process of the 2013 SRT Viper interior on Monday with a sheet of early sketches that don’t seem to offer much direction (shown below). The second piece of artwork in the series includes fewer sketches but it is with this second page we see the early form of the production Viper interior. By the third image, the 2013 SRT Viper interior had seemingly come to life with the help of automotive artist Tome Jovanoski in full color along with the final few pencil drawings.
After those rough sketches, the Drive SRT page turns to specific details of the 2013 SRT Viper interior including the central grab bar and the HVAC vents before revealing the image shown above of the interior that is nearly identical to the production interior layout. From there, it is onto the early clay models that are the full scale premise for the production interior.
We have included just two of these images and with more expected to hit the Drive SRT Facebook page throughout the week, Viper lovers should make sure to visit the official SRT FB page by clicking here to check out these images and the information that goes with them.
