Just when you thought that the 2014 SRT Viper couldn’t get any sexier the Mopar division dolls one up for the 2014 North American International Auto Show in Detroit and the slap a stunning new Stryker Green paint job on the car to make what is – in my opinion – the best looking new Viper yet. In addition to showing off the new Stryker Green paint and a collection of Mopar accessories, this Viper was also fitted with the amenities of the new Grand Touring (GT) package that is available for the 2014 SRT Viper.
The new Grand Touring Package has been created for SRT Viper buyers who want some of the features of the Viper GTS but without all of the amenities or the big price tag of the GTS package. The SRT Viper GT package adds Nappa leather seats, the dual mode Bilstein Damptronic Select suspension system and the 5 mode Electronic Stability Control so in addition to the swanky leather seats, non-GTS Viper owners can enjoy the same stunning performance measures as those who opt for the far pricier Viper GTS. Pricing hasn’t been announced but I would guess that it would sit somewhere below the $16,000 TA package for the 2014 SRT Viper. The stunning Stryker Green is available on the Viper GT or GTS for 2014.
In addition to introducing the new Stryker Green paint option and the Grand Touring package, the 2014 SRT Viper on display at the 2014 NAIAS wore a collection of Mopar items – with some that are currently available and some that are current prototype units not available for sale. This includes the carbon fiber x brace, carbon fiber coil covers, black Sidewinder wheels, front and rear two piece StopTech rotors, front and rear carbon fiber brake ducts, a carbon fiber rear appliqué and a billet shift knob from the current accessories catalog along with the prototype rear wing and prototype extended front corner splitters.
When you add up the 2014 SRT Viper with the new Grand Touring package, the Stryker Green exterior paint and all of those Mopar goodies you have one wicked Mopar supercar that has made me fall even deeper in love with the new SRT Viper.
