Now that the world has officially been introduced to the new generation SRT Viper, the most logical next step would be to imagine the roadster version of the sports car. While an official debut is still at least one year away, here’s our first rendering of the drop top Viper.

The roadster version will keep the same exterior design language with aerodynamically functional details integrated into the high-tech carbon fiber and aluminum skin. The main, and more than likely only, difference will be the fabric roof (seen in recent spy shots) that replaces the fixed roof.

Under the hood, the Viper Roadster will maintain the 8.4-liter all-aluminum, V-10 overhead-valve engine found in the coupe model with an output of 640 HP and 600 lb-ft of torque. This engine will be mated to an improved Tremec TR6060 six-speed manual transmission.

Expect to see the future Viper Roadster launched sometime at the beginning of 2013, most likely at a major show. Do we smell a Detroit reveal?

My opinion is likewise to what I have said on its other article. The roadster’s power isn’t even lessened.

Well, this will cause a commotion on the road for sure; people would be too immersed on staring at its wonder.

This is exactly the announcement I’m waiting for. Its appearance doesn’t really fit the normal roads, but this would be efficient there.

It’s nice that no changes have been made, but come to think of it this would be kind of hazardous. I’m betting a number of its possible consumers will be too lost on enjoying its speed.

I think SRT Viper cares about the consumers. If people truly admire something, of course, they’d aspire to have it too. That’s why it’s very nice of them to release this.

Amazing news! This will be highly anticipated not only by the consumers, but also by the enthusiasts who may spot this on the streets! Its powerful engine can be tested on normal roads then.
