Instead of letting everyone else leak shots and scale models of the 2013 Viper, SRT has gone insider trading and released its own teaser shot of the upcoming snake's interior. What we can see of the overall layout appears familiar from the second-generation car, but the materials look to have been significantly upgraded: ornately bezeled vents, soft-touch trim, cross-stitching and aggressive two-tone accents.

There's been some bother about the evolutionary exterior design of the 2013 Viper, but for a car that had just two generations in 20 years, it can still stand up to anything from Italy for badass presence. What it really needed was an interior and chassis that could deliver on its looks, and it appears the new 2013 model will be getting just that.

We'll continue to wait on its official appearance at the New York Auto Show next week to judge, but based on this shot, we like the look of where things are headed. Click on the photo above for a high-res version and stay tuned for the full debut live from New York next week.

      Mmm, now this is better. I did love the old no nonsense dash of the old ones though. Nothing too interesting to distract you from the sideways driving to be had. I'd have one from any gen. And that will NEVER change!

      As long as the mystic of the Viper remains it's all good.

      Love the OS handle for the passenger next to the shifter.

      How's that for an 'Oh S###' handle?

      Holy hell, from what i can see that interior looks awesome!

      I hope when it's finally fully released to the public eye, it looks appealing overall. I loved the first gen but didn't care much for the second gen.

      I was sad when I watched Ultimate Factories and saw that they had discontinued the Viper. Looking forward to seeing this new one, let the Viper Vette wars begin!

        Here's hoping, but I doubt the Corvette will evolve nearly as quick as this has. Chrysler's new management and possible Ferrari ties are probably playing a big role in this car's potential revolutionary leap in terms of fine tuning and bearable interiors. Not to mention, your Corvette's base price would be about half as much as this, so there's a greater need to cut costs somewhere. But if the C7's interior is half the improvement the Viper's seems to be, you're in for a treat.

        Wow... You really need to educate yourself on the very impressive history of the Viper. If this new one carries forward the tradition of kicking ass, any car will be hard pressed to keep up.

          And you need to be educated that back in 2005 when the GT came out it was a better car than the Viper at that time. The Viper tries so hard and yet fails to come across as an exotic, which even an Audi R8 does. I know I'm going to get bashed for this but I would rather get an M3 than be seen rolling in the poor man's SLS AMG. Not hating, just saying. It's criminal to spend more than 20k on a front engined, RWD Dodge

        But will it? There has been no credible information that Ford is working on a new GT, and for all we know, it could be an AWD hybrid with a V6, as one of the wild speculations said. And back in 2005 when the GT came out, it better have been superior to the Viper...it was limited production and going for about twice the price. And your lack of understanding and appreication for the Viper is laughable. A poor man's SLS? You got it wrong. An SLS is a vain, millionaire old man's Viper. "It's criminal to spend more than 20k on a front engined, RWD Dodge" Can't tell if trolling... ...or just VERY stupid and biased.
