In a bid to keep the slow-selling Viper fresh, SRT has announced a pair of new options for the V10-powered supercar at the 2014 North American International Auto Show in Detroit.
Stryker Green paint, shown above and in the gallery, will be added to the Viper’s growing color palette, and will be available on the GTS and on the standard Viper when optioned with the new Grand Touring package (more on that in a minute). Viper fans will note that this is hardly the model’s first foray into retina-searing shades of green. SRT is claiming this new shade is an evolution of that iconic Snakeskin Green from 2008, but with more noticeable green and yellow elements for a “liquid mercury” appearance.
“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,” said Ralph Gilles, president and CEO of SRT.
As for the Grand Touring equipment pack, the new options bundle adds standard Nappa leather seats, five different modes for the stability control and a two-mode Bilstein damper system, with the latter two items being borrowed from the top-of-the-line GTS model. Venom Black or the new Stryker Green will be the only color options on GT-equipped Vipers.
