We're all anxiously awaiting the arrival of the 2013 SRT Viper by Dodge, scheduled to debut in April at the New York International Auto Show. Until then, all that SRT (or Dodge) has done is tease us with images of the upcoming model. Toy maker Hot Wheels may, however, have just accidentally revealed the new Viper.
Hot Wheels released a list of thumbnail preview images of its upcoming toy cars and mixed in all of it was what they titled as a '13 Viper. And while skeptics might believe that they took a little liberty in determining the design of their toy car, Hot Wheels has a reputation of generating very accurate models.
It is without a doubt what many would envision the next-generation Viper to look like - aggressive, sleek body lines, without abandoning the traditional and infamous shape of the Viper model. Either way, it's the best that we can get and it will be rather interesting just how accurate this model toy car image is to the real thing.
If anyone went to VOI they could confirm or deny the accuracy. It definitely looks more GTS-esque, which the new car has been described as.
It is pretty close to what we saw at VOI.
It is the next viper:
It was confiremed a real hotwheels poster with the words 2013 Viper undernieth it, it looks amazingly simular to what we saw at VOI, it fits all the teaser pics and Drive SRT took all the images down.(And arn't denying it)
fuck me....that's probably it but I'm not excited by that at all if that's it.
The only cars that excites me today are the ones independently “one man’s vision” made.... i.e. Pagani to name one company..
It's just a hot wheels car....
people who have seen the clay model say it's close, but the hood and wheels are obviously wrong. It's also not curvy enough. Go look at other hot wheels cars and compare them to their real cars. They never look exactly right and always look worse.
Man I must have been at a different unveiling in Utah, as I don't think it looks anything like the car we saw. Looks more like a warmed over GTS in my estimation, and though the new car will be more rounded like a Gen II, this just is missing way too many variables in my opinion.
I never thought the Gen3/4 cars were stylistically worthy of the Viper name. Chiseled lines and sharp creases have NO PLACE on a car that calls itself a snake. The only straight lines on the Gen1/2 cars were at the top of the exhaust sills.
