The 2012 New York Auto Show is still about two months which means we will have to wait that long before the official debut of the new generation SRT Viper. We’ve been lucky enough to get a few teaser images thrown our way by Chrysler, but we want the real deal, and we might just be looking at it.
The quality of the image is terrible with very little resolution, but it looks like a Viper that has been completely overhauled as Ralph Gilles, Head of Chrysler, stated it would be: "there won’t be a part of the car that’s untouched."
Squinting our eyes at the image, we can see a completely restyled front end with newly shaped headlights, front bumper, and hood. These elements blend in nicely with the design of the first teaser image revealing the shape of the new Viper.
There’s no way of knowing whether or not this is the real thing until the New York Auto Show opens its doors. What we do know is that the SRT Viper will be housing a new powerhouse engine that should be able to blow our minds. Rumors suggest this engine could be a variation of Chrysler’s new 6.4-liter Hemi V-8 with some form of forced induction or an 8.7 liter V10 engine - the largest engine ever used in a Chrysler production car.
