Los Angeles 2013: SRT Viper GTS Anodized Carbon Special Edition Package

News I By John Beltz Snyder I November 22, 2013
At the Los Angeles Auto Show, Chysler’s SRT brand has shown the Anodized Carbon Special Edition Package for the 2014 Viper GTS. It includes a striking, dark matte metallic finish, and several other features that make it a unique grab for the Viper customer who really wants to stand out.
 
In addition to the stunning exterior color, the Anodized Carbon package includes Black Vapor Chrome “Rattler” wheels, with a menacing shine that contrasts the smooth look of the body color. From behind the five spokes of the wheels, the orange brake calipers are highly visible. The Satin Black of the exhaust bezel, carbon fiber brake ducts, and Anodized Carbon color of the fuel filler door add a bit of depth to those elements without making them stand out too much.

Inside the Anodized Carbon Viper GTS, the Nappa leather and Alcantara seats are trimmed in orange stitching, as are the Nappa leather-wrapped door trim, center console, and instrument cluster. The headliner, door bolsters and knee blockers are done in Alcantara, while the center stack, door panels, and steering wheel all feature carbon fiber accents.
 
Under the long hood of the Viper GTS is a naturally aspirated 8.4-liter V-10 producing 640 horsepower and 600 pound-feet of torque—a suitably brutal heart to match the sinister appearance of the Anodized Carbon Special Edition.
