New 2013 SRT Viper Logo: Stryker

Follow Nelson

The wait for the 2013 SRT Viper has only been about two years--since sales of the previous model ceased--but for fans of the venomous vanguard of American speed, it's been a long one. The wait is drawing to a close now, and as we get closer, we get more of what to expect. Today, it's the new Viper's logo, dubbed "Stryker."

Designed by Vince Galante, a Chrysler designer and Viper owner, the logo aims to capture the "sinister look and 'evil grin' of the original," according to DriveSRT.

Previous logos were named Sneaky Pete and Fangs. Stryker follows in the theme with a stylized viper's head, though the newest is the meanest-looking yet. As these sketches reveal, it's born of the snake itself, but with a healthy dose of artistic interpretation.

While we don't really think the badge has much to do with the car itself--they could have put a cupcake on the nose of the last Viper and it still would have been one of the meanest things on the road--the new direction fits our eyes well. Galante also notes that the new logo has some lines that reflect those of the car, too. What do you see?

  1. the top of the body of the snake and the right hand side of the head look like a side profile of the front third of the car, witht he pattern on top of the head being a possible ventilation "hump" on the bonnet

    Bad stuff?

  2. The Stryker looks like a cross between a Constrictor and a Viper. It needs more Viper, less Constrictor
