With the reborn Dodge Viper scheduled to make its return debut at the upcoming New York Auto Show, the Detroit maker is offering a first vague hint of what’s to come in the form of this stylized silhouette on the SRT Facebook fan page.
The original Viper roadster, designed to be a pure American muscle car, not even offering anti-lock brakes or airbags in its original incarnation. A coupe roof was grudgingly added in 1996, with ABS, airbags and a few other niceties eventually becoming part of the package. But from Day One, the snake was all about muscle and that’s expected to remain the heart-and-soul of the all-new Dodge Viper when it finally returns to showrooms next year.
The front-view teaser suggests the design is a bit retro, though the new version of the Viper will be all-new, this time with a platform borrowed from Fiat’s Maserati division – though it is expected to feature a unique-to-Viper engine.
