2014 NAIAS: SRT Viper receives the Stryker Green color, Grand Touring (GT) special package

Article by Christian A., on January 12, 2014

Chrysler prepared a new, high-impact exterior paint color for the 2014 SRT Viper and will bring it next week at the 2014 North American International Auto Show in Detroit. Dubbed “Stryker Green”, the new color is actually an evolution of the iconic Snakeskin Green exterior color that first made its debut back in 2008.

The new Stryker Green color features enhanced green and yellow pigments and a "liquid mercury" appearance and might be the perfect choice for those who want to take their SRT Viper to the next level of exclusivity. Still, the Stryker Green color is not the only surprise that Chrysler is preparing it for the 2014 Detroit Auto Show, as the American carmaker is also bringing the Grand Touring (GT) special package for the 2014 SRT Viper.

New package features standard Nappa leather seats, five-mode Electronic Stability Control and the two-mode Bilstein DampTronic Select suspension. Still, the Grand Touring (GT) option package will be limited to the new Stryker Green and Venom Black exterior colors. Stryker Green exterior color will be available starting in February on the Viper GTS price class, and the SRT price class with the new GT package.

The new Viper models come with a new timeless exterior that combines modern execution and groundbreaking refinement. For the first time, the SRT Viper features a new carbon-fiber hood, roof and decklid as well as aluminum door panels. These allowed the SRT Viper to shed weight, enhance its stability at high speeds and achieve a low coefficient of drag value of 0.364 Cd.

As intended, the redesigned Viper badge – dubbed as "Stryker" by the Viper Club of America – is centrally positioned on the forward-hinged bonnet. This bonnet allows generous access to the powerful V-10 mill that has been specifically tuned by SRT for the Viper. The latest iteration of the Viper adopts the classical low-stance and the cab rearward proportions typical of the model. The 2013 Viper also features the dramatic fender "gills," a classical Viper design cue that allows heat to exit the engine compartment.

For the 2013 model year, the Viper models reinterpret the traditional "double-bubble" roof configuration, which means the driver and passengers enjoy ample headroom. This roof configuration allowed for a low frontal area, providing more room for helmets during competitive driving. The front end is marked by dual-function, bi-xenon projector headlamps as complemented by white light-emitting diode (LED) daytime running lamps and LED turn signals – forming the so-called "snake eye."

Stryker Green Debuts on 2014 SRT Viper at North American International Auto Show

The newest, high-impact exterior paint color for the SRT Viper is being shown for the first time at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit.

The Chrysler Group's SRT (Street and Racing Technology) brand introduced "Stryker Green," an evolution of the iconic Snakeskin Green exterior color that first appeared in 2008, which features enhanced green and yellow pigments and a "liquid mercury" appearance. The color is the perfect choice for SRT enthusiasts that want to take their SRT Viper to the next level of exclusivity with a vivid and unique color that reflects light to show off the dramatic curves of the Viper.

Also making its debut on the 2014 SRT Viper is the Grand Touring (GT) special package featuring standard Nappa leather seats, five-mode Electronic Stability Control and the two-mode Bilstein® DampTronic Select suspension, both previously only available with the Viper GTS price class. The GT option package will be limited to the new Stryker Green and Venom Black exterior colors.

Stryker Green exterior color will be available starting in February on the Viper GTS price class, and the SRT price class with the new GT package.

The SRT Viper isn't just the ultimate supercar, it's also a perfect canvas for high-performance parts and accessories from Mopar.

This Moparized SRT Viper showcases lightweight carbon fiber components with an exposed carbon fiber performance X-Brace, which is almost 50-percent lighter than the production version with the same strength and functional stiffness.

Additionally, a prototype aero package has been fitted to the show car with a Mopar carbon fiber rear wing and extended front corner splitters.

About SRT Viper
The fifth generation of iconic American-built supercar returned in 2013 as the SRT (Street and Racing Technology) brand's flagship performance machine with more power and performance, superior craftsmanship, new technologies and creature comforts. Power from the all-aluminum, 8.4-liter mid-front V-10 engine delivering 640 horsepower and 600 lb.-ft. of torque -- the most torque of any naturally aspirated sports-car engine in the world, combines with triple-digit weight reduction to produce the best power-to-weight ratio of any Viper ever. Standard safety features include electronic multistage stability control, traction control and new 4-channel anti-lock brake system (ABS).

The iconic supercar is hand-built at the Conner Avenue Assembly Plant in Detroit -- the Viper's home since 1995. Both SRT Viper and SRT Viper GTS models offer new interior and exterior designs incorporating premium materials and new exterior surfaces with aerodynamically functional details that are beautifully integrated into the high-tech carbon fiber and aluminum skin. On the inside, designers and engineers strived to rethink all its touch points and upgrade all its material appointments and technologies. The Viper GTS model adds many premium features including a leather wrapped interior, five mode electronic stability control and a two mode adjustable suspension.
