The 2014 Anodized Carbon Special Edition Package SRT Viper GTS marks the first use of the metallic matte exterior color on an FCA US LLC vehicle.

The SRT Viper GTS Anodized Carbon Special Edition Package is the first matte-finish paint offered by SRT. Following the lead of the Stryker Red finish of the 2013 SRT Viper, this exotic, show-quality finish distinguishes Viper from all others.

“We’ve been waiting for the right time to use this striking new exterior color at FCA US and as the flagship for the SRT (Street and Racing Technology) brand, the Viper is the perfect vehicle to showcase this combination of finishes and details to create such a unique look,” said Ralph Gilles, President and CEO – SRT Brand and Motorsports, FCA US LLC.

“The Viper’s unique, hand built and hand painted process allow us to create these ultra-exclusive special series builds. At SRT, the art of the American exotic supercar is every bit as important as its performance, and this car is for the enthusiasts who feel that way too,” Gilles said.

The new metallic matte exterior body color brings the Viper GTS a one-of-a-kind, luxurious look by providing even greater accentuation to the vehicle’s form. The metallic finish adds depth while the dark matte color amplifies the Viper’s sinister quality.

Unique exterior accents in the Anodized Carbon Special Edition package include: Black Vapor Chrome five-spoke “Rattler” wheels, Gloss Black GTS badge, Satin Black exhaust bezel, Anodized Carbon fuel filler door, orange brake calipers, carbon fiber brake ducts and rear applique.

Luxurious interior accents include Alcantara wrapped headliner, door bolsters and knee blockers; orange accent stitching on the Nappa leather wrapped door trim, center console and instrument panel and on the Nappa leather and Alcantara seats. Orange accents are also added to the door panel and instrument panel. Carbon fiber accents are added throughout the center stack, door panels and steering wheel, and an exclusive carbon GTS badge adorns the dashboard.

The limited production run of 50 Viper GTS models with the Anodized Carbon Special Edition Package began in January at the Conner Avenue Assembly Plant in Detroit.

The SRT Viper GTS builds on the DNA of the SRT Viper model with more technologically advanced solutions, like its driver-selectable suspension system that allows this world-class car to find extreme limits on the track while also opening up its envelope as a more mature evolution of the classic, extreme performance formula.

Designed and built with premium features and materials inside and out, the Viper GTS models compete with the best performance touring cars in the world – and does so with a wide range of creature comforts, advanced drivetrain and interior technologies.

Under the hood is the handcrafted, all-aluminum 8.4-liter, mid-front V-10 overhead-valve engine. Performance ratings are 640 horsepower and 600 lb.-ft. of torque — the most torque of any naturally aspirated sports-car engine in the world.
