The guys over at Serpent have been teasing their new 977 Viper for a while now, but they have just released 2 pictures and some basic info on what is sure to be one of the trickest 8th scale on-road cars to ever hit the market.
First off, the new 977 Viper uses approximately 80% all new parts, thus ensuring it isn’t just an updated 966 model. Parts held over from the older design were those that are proven rock solid- the Centax TrueMotion clutch, the 2-speed gearbox, the wheel/axle-sets, the driveshafts and the bumper. The new 977 Viper will be available in February 2013, and judging from the pictures it looks every bit as uber-high-tech as we’ve come to expect from Serpent. More information to come on this one, until then, check out the official Serpent Website.
