With almost one month before the official start of the 2012 New York Auto Show, the 2013 SRT Viper has been leaked on the internet again. This time, two images of a 1:64 die-cast model offer up a new glimpse of what the new American sports car will look like.

It is already known that the next Viper will come with a more aggressive design, featuring all-new bodywork painted 25 times in candy-apple red. It will feature a completely restyled front end with newly shaped headlights, a new front bumper, and a new hood. Ralph Gilles, Head of Chrysler, said: "there won’t be a part of the car that’s untouched."

Under the hood, there are two engine possibilities: 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.

Stay tuned for more details on the upcoming 2013 SRT Viper.

The Die-Cast model looks great at that shot so how about the real Viper?

SRT has probably said that because they are sure that no person would leave the Viper alone; too many have already been awed by this masterpiece.

I did not believe this at first; I thought that the SRT Viper was just another copy of the Aventador because of some similar features, but upon its recent unveiling, I’ve been wronged.

Overall, I just dislike its lengthy front. The fascia has this aggressive design, which very much complements its fierce performance.

Hah! As I’m reading articles backwards, I feel like it must have been excruciating to be teased by this.

Have they remodeled this or something? I hope this SRT Viper has a venomous appeal as it sounds.

Although I don’t particularly like its style, I’d still wait for a sneak peek of its performance. Just by reading its name, I’d speculate that this is one fierce supercar.

It would be great if Dodge Viper contains the 8.7 liter V10 engine to extend its performance to the fullest. If they have something better, why not apply it?

“There won’t be a part of the car that’s left untouched.” –— Actually, what is that statement? I don’t know whether I should take it literally or figuratively. If it means all of its features are highly functional, then good, it’s about time they put everything to full use.

Its performance is really fierce just how it looks like! But to be honest, I don’t really get the fascination with long-snout hoods.
