13 viper 2.jpgLess than two weeks after a grainy image surfaced on the
    internet of what allegedly showed the Hot Wheels version of the 2013 SRT Viper,
    the internet gods have presented us with what could be our first look at the
    new Viper in metal – again courtesy of the folks at Hot Wheels.

    The car in the image is believed to be the 2013 SRT Viper
    and while the car shown here is dark red and the previous Hot Wheels artwork
    showed a bright red car, the black and white stripes are similar and there is
    an SRT logo on the roof of the car shown here. 
    By all accounts, we have to believe that this is the Hot Wheels version
    of the 2013 SRT Viper but is this really what the production version headed to
    the New York Auto Show will look like?

    The car above looks a great deal like a 1996-2002 Dodge
    Viper GTS Coupe with a new front end and a lightly refreshed rear end.  The front end still features a familiar overall
    shape but a new leading portion of the hood, a reformed front fascia and some
    new headlights are what distinguish this Viper the most from the 2nd
    generation Dodge Vipers.

    Will the Chrysler Group really go this “retro” with the 2013 SRT Viper? Tell us what you think in the forum by clicking here!
