2013 Viper accidentally revealed in a Hot Wheels toy

Kamil Kaluski February 22, 2012 All Things Hoon 15 Comments

Squint. The above is the 2013 SRT Viper. Correction, that’s the Hot Wheels 2013 Dodge Viper. Allegedly. Supposedly.

Could it be that Dodge or SRT, whatever the proper name maybe these days, accidentally introduced the 2013 Viper in a large Hot Wheels scale? Weirder things have happened. Below is the “official teaser” released by the Chrysler Corporation. Squint again. NACA duct in the middle, headlights curved to the sides and back. This may very well be it. The spy shot after the jump reveals two intake ducts, one on each side of the NACA duct.

    It somehow seems fitting – there are few production cars that have more natural synergy with Hot Wheels than the Viper.

  • IronBallsMcG

    My understanding is that if you reveal your Viper, you can't live in a school zone.

    Corrected headline: Viper Is A Hot Wheels Toy.

  • Reminds me of this:

    Another secret revealed in a toy, sort of.

    • I am pretty sure that I had this very kit.

  • BlackIce_GTS

    It's happened before, they released this first-year C4 Corvette before GM had revealed it.

    • Maymar

      The HW 1968 Custom Corvette also apparently beat the real C3 to showrooms. You'd think they'd eventually make a point of carrying on that trend.

      • BlackIce_GTS

        Agh! Plus one to you.
        I was sure it was an earlier car, but all the cites I could find just talked about the C4.

        • Maymar

          Hell, plus one to you – I didn't know they pulled the same trick with the C4.

      Also happened with the latest gen Mustang GT.

      Wow I had that very car, the one in gray! Though it got annoying to me how the hood would rattle so I mushed green plastaline in there, ha!

    Speech less. Its really great outstanding….

  • RichardKopf

    Intake ducts + NACA duct = women reproductive parts.

  • BlackIce_GTS

    Another tradition!:
    (if this isn't safe for work, you work with people that have serious issues, but I'm going to link to it anyway.)

  • This paragraph is really a fastidious one it helps new web viewers, who are wishing in favor of blogging.
