Back in November, at the 2013 Los Angeles Auto Show, Chrysler showed the Viper Anodized Carbon Special Edition Package but for the 2014 New York Auto Show, the American carmaker revealed an even more exclusive Viper Anodized Carbon Special Edition Package by combining it with the Time Attack Group road-racing spec-package.
Chrysler will only build 50 SRT Viper Anodized Carbon Special Edition vehicles, but only 10 of them (Nos. 41-50) will befitted with the new Time Attack Group package. As expected, each unit will feature a special numbered dash plaque. For those who don’t know, the SRT Viper fitted with the Anodized Carbon Special Edition Package features Metallic Matte Black and satin surface finishes, Satin Black Vapor on the exhaust bezels, fuel-filler door and carbon brake ducts.
Moreover, there is a rear applique located below the liftgate that provides a contrast to the Metallic Matte Black body. Inside, we find Alcantara with orange stitching. Moreover, the Alcantara headliner, Alcantara-wrapped knee blockers and door bolsters provide interior surface texture contrast, while gunmetal bezels, orange vent accents, and carbon-fiber trim further accent the interior.
The Nappa leather and Alcantara-wrapped sport seats feature orange stitching. In addition, the Time Attack Group offers a carbon fiber rear deck lid spoiler, two-piece front corner splitters and two-mode Bilstein dampers specifically tuned for optimal on-track performance (you can easily identify them due to the orange springs).
And this is not all as the package also Street and Race Mode suspension settings, includes matte black lightweight forged-aluminum Sidewinder wheels and solid sway bars lead to even more capable handling. Behind the wheels we see the track-duty two-piece Brembo brake rotors, adapted from the 2010 Viper ACR-X race car.
The new SRT Viper models feature a new exterior design that combines modern execution and evolutionary refinement. For instance, the new SRT Viper now employs – for the first time – an all-new carbon-fiber hood, roof and decklid as well as aluminum door panels. All of these allowed these new models to become much lighter, more stable at high speeds, and have a super coefficient of drag value of 0.364 Cd.
In addition, these SRT models feature a forward-hinged hood with the centrally located redesigned Viper badge -- named "Stryker" by the Viper Club of America. This forward-hinged hood offers great access to the SRT-engineered V-10 engine and a number of service points.
Furthermore, the typical cues of the iconic supercar are making their return on the 2013 SRT Viper models, including its classical low-stance, extreme cab rearward proportions, and the dramatic fender "gills" that help draw away heat from the engine bay. Likewise, the 2013 SRT Viper models feature a modern reinterpretation of the traditional "double-bubble" roof configuration that allows them to optimize headroom for the driver and passenger while maintaining a low frontal area. This means the cabin has enough headroom to allow occupants to wear helmets during competitive drives.
Meanwhile, the SRT Viper comes with dual-function, bi-xenon projector headlamps featuring white LE daytime running lamps and LED turn signals that are arranged like a "snake eye."
