If you were gearing up to visit the 2012 Detroit Motor Show to see the new generation Dodge Viper, you might get disappointed.
New reports suggest that Chrysler might skip their hometown motor show in Detroit, in spite of all the hype their created with Imported From Detroit campaign, and reveal the new Viper in concept form at the next New York Auto Show.
One might argue that’s because the car’s not yet ready. But sources close to Chrysler say New York more of an International event and provides a wider audience. Seeing as the new Viper is a global supercar, it makes mroe sense for it to make its debut in that city.
As for the car itself, all the evidences suggest it’s become softer and safer. It will have traction control for Christ’s sake, can you belive it! It certainly will be faster than the old Viper but it won’t have that car’s party piece which was unforgiving brutality and raw simplicty.
