2013 Dodge Viper Design

The 2013 Dodge Viper will be available during the 2012 model year. Why do car companies do this? This gives them 18+ months to do what they can't do in 12 months!

Chrysler folks say that the new Viper design will be “drop-dead beautiful” so it can take buyers from Porsche SE’s cars and General Motors Co.’s Corvette.

The new Viper’s look was inspired by “a naked woman on the beach,” Ralph Gilles, the head of Chrysler’s design, told reporters at the Automotive News World Congress in Detroit.

Chrysler sold 392 Vipers last year, down from 482 in 2009 and 1,172 in 2008, according to researcher Autodata Corp. The convertible version starts at $90,255 and the coupe at $91,005, according to Edmunds.com, a website for car shoppers.

$90,000+ to drive a two seater car that resembles a beautiful naked woman on the beach?
How about designing a car that resembles a beautiful car?
