SRT is introducing a special limited-edition Viper GTS to showcase a special metallic matte paint color. Just fifty of the Viper GTS Anodized Carbon special edition models will be built, starting in January. It’s the first time that Chrysler has used the special paint texture for a production car.
Taking advantage of the Viper’s hand-built status, the Anodized Carbon edition’s body curves stand out and the car seems to absorb light. This Viper looks a bit like the Batmobile and a bit like it just might eat you if you turn your back. Unique Black Vapor Chrome wheels, gloss black badges and orange brake calipers are also used to complete the look. Inside, there’s orange accent stitching on the Nappa leather seats, an Alcantara headliner and carbon fiber accent trim.
The Viper’s 8.4 liter V10 is unchanged, but the 640-horsepower engine doesn’t exactly demand improvement. The Viper GTS also features a driver-selectable suspension to recalibrate the car for street or track driving.
“We’ve been waiting for the right time to use this striking new exterior color at the Chrysler Group and as the flagship for the SRT brand, the Viper is the perfect vehicle to showcase this combination of finishes and details to create such a unique look,” said Ralph Gilles, CEO of the SRT brand. “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.”
