oh2o reported, “The big news for the 2014 SRT Viper is the new TA Special Edition, to become available later this year. The main change that will take place immediately is the addition of the light weight two-piece Stoptech rotors as standard equipment on the GTS, which is driving a $1,500 MSRP base price increase on the GTS model.”
The 2014 Viper SRT Coupe starts at $99,395 plus $1,995 destination plus $2,678 gas-guzzler tax, for a total of $102,068. Free colors are adrenaline red, billet silver, black, and white. Buyers pay $1,000 more for GTS-R blue pearl, gunmetal pearl, or race yellow.
For 2014, Viper’s base price rises by $2,000, but it includes the Grand Touring Package and 12-speaker system, sold in 2013 for $4,495, and ordered by “nearly all buyers.” In September 2014, Dodge cut the price of the Viper by $15,000.
The 2014 Viper GTS Coupe starts $ 126,568 including destination and gas-guzzler tax. Colors are the same as for Coupe.
Viper SRT options include Rattler wheels in glossy or matte black for $1,100, Sidewinder wheels with the same options at $1,700, the advanced aerodynamic package at $4,800, alternate-colored seat belts at $350, 18-speaker, 32-volt audio ($2,995), special P295/30 and P355/30 Z-rated tires at $800, an exterior carbon fiber pack at $5,100, interior carbon fiber accents at $3,400, and racing stripes in red, silver, black, white, or gunmetal for $4,500. Cloth Sabelt seats or leather seats (black, caramel, red) are standard; leather Sabelt seats are $3,000.
Options for GTS are similar, except there are also $500 polished Rattler wheels; a Laguna interior package for $7,500; stripes are $5,000; a rear body color appliqué is $50; the 18-speaker, 32-volt audio is $1,000; and an SRT hood is $1,000. The suede and leather seats are included, with Sabelt premium leather seats included in the Laguna package.
The exterior carbon fiber package includes front and rear brake duct bezels and a rear carbon-fiber appliqué. The aero package included a carbon-fiber front splitter and rear spoiler.
The 2013 Viper comes in black, "adrenaline" red, shadow blue pearl, gunmetal pearl, race yellow, and bright white. GTS blue and Stryker red tinted pearl are available for Viper GTS; Stryker Red is a pricey option. The standard stereo is a nine-speaker setup with 12 and 18 speakers available. Inside, standard seats are fabric, with optional Nappa leather and suede coverings; six-way manual adjusters are standard. Colors are black, red, and tan. Red three-point belts are optional.
Other options include the painted dual racing stripes (under the clearcoat), available in silver, black, and gunmetal for $4,500; Viper-embroidered floor mats; Sabelt Nappa leather seats; a 12-speaker premium audio system with four subwoofers and Logic 7 surround sound ($1,995 for SRT); an 18-speaker, 32-volt system with the four subwoofers and Logic 7 ($2,995 for SRT, $1,000 for GTS); and carbon fiber interior and exterior styling groups.
There are four option packages:
Viper GTS has more wheel choices, with five-spoke Rattler wheels or six-spoke Venom wheels in polished aluminum ($500 extra for the Rattlers on GTS), matte or glossy black ($1,100), or painted pockets. Colors are the same as standard Viper, plus black, white, Stryker red tinted pearl, gunmetal, and GTS blue. Inside, six-way power seats are standard, with black ballistic nylon, Nappa leather with Alcantara inserts ($3,000), and Sabelt SRT Laguna Premium leather optional; the normal seats are black, tan, or red, while Sabelts are black or sepia. Red three-point belts are optional.
Other options are the dual racing stripes for $5,000 in black, gunmetal, silver, and bright white (for Launch Edition only); carbon fiber clamshell hood with six air extractors and center air intake; and carbon fiber interior and exterior groups. A 12-speaker stereo is standard, with an optional 18-speaker, 32-volt system (as described earlier).
The SRT Touring and Track packages appear to be the same as with the standard Viper. There is also an SRT Track Package with matte-black wheels, which appears to be otherwise identical to the Track package.

The 2013 SRT Viper model costs US$97,395 ($99,390 with destination), while the 2013 SRT Viper GTS model is $120,395 ($122,390 with destination). A gas guzzler tax is likely to bring the price over $100,000, but the amount of the tax is unknown pending official gas mileage figures. The 2010 Dodge Viper cost $90,255 before destination and gas-guzzler tax.
Larry Vellequette of Automotive News pointed out that the Viper’s list price is lower than that of the Chevrolet Corvette ZR1, which costs $114,575, including delivery but not the gas-guzzler tax.
