Stryker Green 2014 SRT Viper Uncaged at 2014 NAIAS
Chrysler Group LLC has revealed an all-new paint color for the 2014 SRT Viper at this week’s North American International Auto Show (NAIAS): the fittingly-serpentine Stryker Green 2014 SRT Viper will be available starting in February. Stryker Green is being called the next evolution in the Snakeskin Green color that first appeared on the supercar in 2008 and featured yellow and green pigments in a “liquid mercury” sheen. The color will only be available to the Viper GTS price class and the newly-announced GT package in the SRT price class.
“We’re continuing to develop and build unique, low-volume, special-edition colors for the Viper that adds to the exclusivity of our American-built flagship supercar,” said Ralph Gilles, President and CEO, SRT Brand and Motorsports, in Chrysler Group LLC’s press release. “Every SRT Viper is painted with a process that is very similar to what we use for our show cars. The application of the new Stryker Green exterior paint is a very detailed and intricate process, taking approximately eight hours to complete. The process first starts with a base color coat followed by a green-tinted mid-coat and topped off with a clear finish. Each coat application adds depth and accentuates the curvature of the Viper’s exterior design.”
Chrysler’s Street and Racing Technology (SRT) brand also revealed the 2014 SRT Viper Grant Touring (GT) package, which will feature standard Nappa leather seats, five-mode Electronic Stability Control, and two-mode Bilstein® DampTronic Select suspension. The former two options were previously only made available in the Viper GTS price class. The 2014 Viper GT will only be offered in Venom Black and the newly-revealed Stryker Green.
