SRT's all-American supercar
likely know that there have (so far) been two different logos used to depict the fanged Viper
. The first, affectionately referred to as "Sneaky Pete," ran from 1992 until 2002. The second appeared in 2003, when the Viper
got a major styling update, and was called "Fangs."
An all-new Viper is set to debut
at the 2012 New York Auto Show
, and it will do so with an equally fresh logo. We're not sure exactly when the Stryker design was first revealed – anyone who looked closely enough got an early black-and-white glimpse when the automaker released the upcoming car's first teaser image
in January of this year – but we do know that the latest set of images released by the SRT hive mind offer a much more detailed look at the logo.
, the logo was named at the 2010 Viper Owners Invitational in Salt Lake City, Utah, and was chosen by Viper owners from amongst a handful of options. While we know very little about the actual car it will adorn, Mark Trostle, Head of SRT Design, said the following: "The new Stryker badge is the most refined, sinister looking and beautiful badge yet, just like the shape of the car." Consider our interest piqued.
UPDATE: A representative from SRT reached out to remind us that the next-generation Viper will not be part of the Dodge lineup, but instead the newly formed SRT brand.
