The upcoming new Viper will no longer be listed as a Dodge model, it will be marketed under the SRT brand and will come with a brand new logo too, called the ‘Stryker’. The move follows in the footsteps of the previous models as every Viper’s generation has had its own ’snake logo’.
The new Viper badge has been drawn by young Chrysler designer Vince Galante, who admitted he was a fan of Transformers, GI Joe and the Thundercats as a kid: “I never looked at images of the Thundercats while I was doing the new logo - said Galante - but after the fact, I realize that the new design has some elements of those graphics, but more intentionally has some lines that reflect the new Viper”. The new SRT Viper will be officially unveiled at the 2012 New York Auto Show (April 6-15).
