Seen in Detroit – SRT Viper
THIS was a favorite, hands down: the beautiful SRT Viper, shown below in Stryker Green and the new Anodized Carbon Special Edition Package. You may remember that Viper used to belong to the Dodge brand, where it was a rough-and-tough sports car hooligan. Gone for a few years, it returned in 2013 as part of the new stand-alone SRT sub-brand of Chrysler (SRT, or Street & Racing Technology, has long been the performance wing of Chrysler’s brands). More beautiful and modern than ever, but no less badass, it stole my heart at the Detroit Auto Show.
Anodized Carbon – the first matte paint for the Viper. Photos can’t capture how amazing this color looks in person.
I’m a sucker for a crazy green shade. Or, officially, Stryker Green.
The Viper’s den. Kudos to SRT for the manual transmission.
The tail. Pure poison.
Carbon fiber poison.
Once more, with feeling.
But, oh, that anodized carbon…I want.
This was the only stand that made me trip (which is kind of amazing, actually). The Viper bit me.
Hoo…such a handsome snake.
Naturally I want the most expensive one. The Viper starts at $102,485 (which is only about $100,485 more than I have), but be prepared to shell out $138,885 for the Viper GTS Anodized Carbon Special Edition Package. Rats.
Add it to the bucket list.
