Teased: 2013 Dodge Viper

Ok, before everyone gets too excited, Dodge has only released a teaser image of their new Viper test mule with the 2010 model's body. What they're previewing, however, is the car's development with stability control. Unlike previous Vipers, the upcoming generation will be equipped with the system. Few other details have been divulged regarding much else, although it was developed alongside the Mercedes SLS AMG.

That said, expectations are high. Details on styling also remain limited, with only Dodge CEO Ralph Gilles stating the new car would resemble a "naked woman on the beach." Interesting description, to say the least. We can only expect that he was referring to the large hood, massive grille, and a double bubble roof. You get the point. Power is expected to come from the previous model's 8.4-liter V10, but could be equipped with Fiat's MultiAir technology.

Obviously, there's nothing official yet, but it could produce more than 600 hp and 560 lb-ft of torque. The new Viper is expected to be launched sometime in late 2012.
