2013 SRT Viper: Revealed…!

April 4, 2012

UPDATE..! Full photo-album of the new 2013 SRT Viper below as promised..!

Like most of you, I enjoy a good ‘ol fashioned pre-launch automobile tease-fest when it’s done properly. You know – ominous, shadowy images detailing a particularily curvy and possibly indistinguishable flank of metal or aluminium… presented to your computer screen… once every 2 weeks… for 2 months.

But nowadays, there are many other ways to spoil that party: enter video-game makers and their update packs. In this case, Forza 4.

What we see here (albeit in digital construction) is the 2013 SRT Viper and it’s pretty safe to say that the sexy curves of yore have returned (yay), the big, sharp, trailing-off wing has made a comeback (yay again) and the whole thing will be launching down your block with an 8.7L V10 hammering out close to 600 bhp slotted underneath that nostril-engaging nose (another yay).

Actual in-the-metal pics from the ‘official’ New York Auto Show launch will be updated on here asap..!

A proper tease...

An artist's rendering... Nice effort, but you're ruining my tease-party...!

Spotlight: Dodge Challenger SRT8 ‘Yellow Jacket’ concept

January 13, 2012

Musclecars should always be loud and brash, and this one-off Dodge Challenger ‘Yellow Jacket’ (named after a Dodge concept-car from back in ’69) SRT8 392 shown at the Los Angeles Auto Show back in Nov. 2011, fits the bill.

The mechanicals are no different than a regular SRT8 with the tarmac-blazing 6.4L 470bhp Hemi underneath, but the aesthetic changes are all bespoke to this car.

From the vibrant ‘Yellow Stinger’ paint boldly contrasting with the old-school body-length black stripe with ‘Yellow Jacket’ emblazoned across the rear flanks to the aggressive 20″ wheels and eye-catching (yet subtle) interior… this aesthetic design-concept harkens back to those times of yore when driving/owning a Musclecar was all about fun, flash and fanfare.

Fiat nudging (er, allowing?) Chrysler/Dodge to have a bit of fun via inspiration from the past… Perhaps being owned by car-worshipping Italians won’t turn out to be such a bad thing after all…? *fingers crossed*
