By releasing this picture of the next-gen viper’s test mule doing some winter sports the company officially announces the return of the beast for late 2012. This winter testings are mainly devised to develop a new stability control system which is a first for the Viper. None of the previous models had any electronic controls, and to be honest that was the reason they were so awesome. Now though such systems are mandatory by safety regulations. So the engineers are going to have a really hard job capturing the essence of the Viper in the new model.
