2013 SRT Viper gets its stripes back

When SRT unveiled the new generation Viper , we were a little disappointed to see that the classic racing stripes that made the previous generation Viper so famous were gone. Don’t get us wrong, the cherry red was nothing short of spectacular, but the car was still missing a little something. Turns out, SRT read our minds and have revealed the first image featuring the new Viper with its famous stripes. In fact, this is the first time we’ve seen the new supercar wearing anything else other than a solid exterior paint finish. The photo also comes with the following announcement: "the new Viper just passed its dry-track stability control testing with flying colors."

As a reminder, the new Viper is powered by an 8.4-liter all-aluminum, V-10 overhead-valve engine that delivers a total of 640 HP and 600 lb-ft of torque. The new engine will be mated to an improved Tremec TR6060 six-speed manual transmission. it is rumored that the car will be priced somewhere in the $110K area.

The stripes in this Viper give a sportier look than the standard SRT.

The biggest con of this is its possible price. The other factors don’t matter much, but price is a touchy subject. Aside from that, the exterior is just good having those stripes back.

Oh, those stripes are really stunning. It became sportier on the exterior look.

I just don’t like the stripes on this car, I find it not fitted to this car.

I have a suggestion if you can do it plain red much better to the car.

I’m still hoping for better looks of this Viper, but its performance will leave you amazed.

I just don’t like the stripes on this Viper. It’ll be better if they used flow lines of the aerodynamics.

It’ll be better if these stripes use for racing purposes. It’s just that it looks perfect on a racing event.

It’s a split appearance since it has powerful performance with a soft-sexy design.

For me, stripes won’t fit in sexy stance of this Viper.

@Dave Barney: You’re right. This Viper doesn’t fit to be in those stripes. Shelby Mustang is much better with stripes.

Could these stripes will bring back Viper in more aggressive stance? I doubt it won’t at all.

It’s sounds great that this Viper passed the dry-track stability controls testing.

I like it, but its exterior design is awkward on this model.

The stripes didn’t help this Viper achieve the aggressive looks like a muscle car like Shelby GT500.

Having that with stripes makes it a bit awkward. Anyway, the performance and output do it more outstanding.

Although they gave back its stripes, It somehow looks like copied from the Mustang car from the Shelby.
