    SRT, the recently formed standalone brand of Chrysler, is determined to reveal the new 2013 Viper nice and slow. After releasing the first teaser image last month and offering a first look at the new 'Stryker' Viper logo, SRT has just posted a second teaser image of the 2013 Viper on their official Facebook page. While this second photo is much more clear than the first, what exactly is shown in the image is up to debate. Yes, it looks to be a carbon fiber scoop, but what kind?

    While we may not know exactly what's in the second Viper teaser, here's what we do know about SRT's next gen flagship: Traction control will be used for the first time in the model's history as mandated by federal law, and while the 2013 Viper's powertrain is still unconfirmed, there are rumors that the V10 could get a bump in displacement to an incredible 8.7 liters.

    My Brother was telling me about the new Viper. He works for Chrysler. He says some of the stuff that you can find on the web is correct but a lot is speculation. He said the car is still not fully defined as what the final product will be.

    This was the first that I had heard about the separate SRT brand from Chrysler. The Viper used to be badged under Dodge.

    Well SRT is sort of it's own Brand name under Chrysler but some of the cars that are in the SRT lineup can be found in the other groups but are base\low end. The SRT is strictly reserved for the High performance optioned cars. Like the Challenger SRT8, Charger SRT8, etc.

    Not really. SRT having its own brand is pretty dumb, considering there are vehicles from each line that are modified to SRT.

    300 is Chrysler and discontinued is the SRT-6, a supercharged Crossfire.
    Charger and Challenger are Dodge. (There was also the SRT-4, a quick as hell turbo Neon, which then evolved into the SRT-4 Caliber) and let's not forget the SRT-10 Ram, which initially was under Dodge, but they've split the Ram line off.
    Jeep has the baddest of them all, the SRT8 Grand Cherokee.

    All SRT is, is Ford's SVT in Mopar clothing.
