Just to note. There are a few mistakes in that article. First, to clarify the picture shown is a 2010 Viper ACRX, a non street legal track version of the viper. No images of the new car have been released or leaked ANYWHERE. There have been two unveiling's of the car, one at the Dodge dealers summit last year and again at the 2010 Viper Owners Invitational in Salt Lake. At both showings very tight precautions were taken to insure that no photos were taken.
Another mistake I noticed in the article is they claim that the viper had a 6.3 liter engine. The 2008-2010 models all had a 8.4 liter engine.
As the article mentioned the new model will include certain features that are new to any Viper model of the past, including traction control to meet the new government regulations, however it has been suggested by Ralph Gilles (Dodge CEO) as well as others on the design team that any added stability controls will be able to be deactivated.
There has also been a great deal of hinting to the possibility that the new models will have additional trim options allowing buyers to determine the level of interior luxury. Which as some of you may know has always been a highly debated issue of previous models. No more will the viper receive lower ratings based on the interior finish.
Along with complete redesign of the car, Dodge has re-branded the viper with a new logo, replacing the 2003-2010 "Fangs" logo with a more menacing styled emblem.
The base purchase price is not expected to change much from the 2010 models keeping the viper around 90k.

yeah the article is meant just for keeping folks aware of whats new. The Viper is an amazing machine I am thinking about getting a used one when I pay one of my vehicles off. My recent dealings with the Socal Viper group has been great and I am starting to get a new desire to want the Viper
