Desperate to get a glimpse of the 2013 Viper when it's unveiled at the New York Auto Show tomorrow? Why wait! Several screen captures have leaked online showing the American supercar in all its shiny red glory. It's expected they're from a video that will be shown during the car's world premiere in Manhattan tomorrow.

Undeniably a Viper, there's certainly some Italian flare in the new car with hints of the Alfa Romeo 8C and the Ferrari 575. Other notable style elements include the large side vents, the large hood scoop, side exhaust and sculped roof.

I really hope that's Dodge's late April fools prank, it looks like an 80's version or "pre-quel" of the original. Do not like.

the '10 viper acr holds the ring record, i cant imagine what the acr version of this will do.

It will have eleventy-thousand horsepower and 7655 lbs of torque. :D

Good move for them - Anything to disassociate with the name "Dodge" is a positive thing. Now, just get rid of the Chrysler connection altogether and yer good to go! rotfl

Vipers hold their value quite well. And they became much better handling cars over time. Love the viper.

I had a 99 gts and loved it. The new 2013 looks like a great car not only to look at, but also to drive. I heard the new gts will be around $140 ,000 that's a little steep

That's all their good for IMHO. A GT car for the track.
Would never pay the money they ask for them as a street toy.

Love him or hate him, I'm guessing Dany did not have the Viper in mind when he talked about moving up market. The engineering costs of the Viper are probably a rounding error at Chrysler.
