The Chrysler Group has been very quiet regarding changes to the 2014 SRT Viper shy of the addition of the new Time Attack model. But thanks to some insider info from Allpar, we have an idea of what colors will be available when the 2014 model year Vipers begin production in July.
The 2013 SRT Viper (base model) is available in six colors: Shadow Blue Pearl Coat, Adrenaline Red, Race Yellow Pearl Coat, Black Venom, Bright White Clear Coat and Gunmetal Pearl Coat. The 2013 SRT Viper GTS is available in those six colors along with two GTS-exclusive colors – GTS Blue Pearl Coat and Stryker Red Tinted Pearl Coat. 2013 Viper GTS buyers can also opt for painted stripes in Black, Silver or Gunmetal with stripe color availability varying based on the exterior color chosen (example: Black Venom Vipers cannot be ordered with Black stripes).
According to Allpar’s source, the 2014 SRT Viper will also be available with no less than eight paint color options with at least one of those choices being specific to the Viper GTS. Returning for the 2014 MY Viper are four colors including Adrenaline Red, Race Yellow Pearl Coat, Black Venom, and Gunmetal Pearl Coat. Bright White Pearl Coat may be replaced by a new white called Viper White (which may be the exact same color with a different name) while GTS Blue Pearl Coat, Stryker Red Tinted Pearl Coat and Shadow Blue Pearl Coat are gone altogether.
New for the 2014 SRT Viper are the color options True Blue Pearl Coat, Billet Silver Metallic and Stryker Green Tri Coat (GTS only). True Blue could be the replacement for the GTS Blue Pearl Coat but it is unclear whether True Blue will be a bright blue like GTS Blue or a darker blue like Shadow Blue. My guess is that True Blue will be something brighter, more like the GTS Blue used for the launch of the 2013 SRT Viper. While the new Stryker Green Tri Coat will be specific to the Viper GTS, it is unclear if any of these other colors will be unique to the GTS and what kind of stripe color options we can expect for the new model year.
In addition to the eight colors discussed above for the 2014 SRT Viper and Viper GTS, the bright orange option that is specific to the 2014 Viper TA (shown above) will add a ninth color to the palate for the new model year and should there be a Viper ACR introduced during the 2014 calendar year – there could be another package specific color introduced well into the production run of the 2014 model year Mopar supercars.
