Today, SRT showed off the high-impact “Stryker Green” color Viper, an evolution of the Snakeskin Green that first appeared in 2008. It includes enhanced green and yellow pigments and a “liquid mercury” appearance.
SRT chief Ralph Gilles said, “Every SRT Viper is painted with a process that is very similar to what we use for our show cars. The application of the new Stryker Green exterior paint is a very detailed and intricate process, taking approximately eight hours to complete. The process first starts with a base color coat followed by a green-tinted mid-coat and topped off with a clear finish. Each coat application adds depth and accentuates the curvature of the Viper’s exterior design.”
The 2014 SRT Viper also has a new Grand Touring (GT) package with Nappa leather seats, five-mode Electronic Stability Control, and the two-mode Bilstein® DampTronic Select suspension, both previously only available with the Viper GTS. The GT will be sold only in Stryker Green and Venom Black. GTS is also available in Stryker Green; the color will be available starting in February on GT and GTS models.
The Moparized SRT Viper shown here showcases lightweight carbon fiber components with an exposed carbon fiber performance X-Brace, which is almost 50% lighter than the production version, with the same strength and functional stiffness. A prototype aero package has also been fitted to the show car, with a Mopar carbon fiber rear wing and extended front corner splitters.
