Shown for the first time today at the New York International Auto Show, the Chrysler Group's SRT (Street and Racing Technology) brand is enhancing the ultra-exclusive, Viper Anodized Carbon Special Edition Package by combining it with the new Time Attack Group road-racing spec-package.
A total of only 50 SRT Viper Anodized Carbon Special Edition vehicles will be produced, with only 10 (Nos. 41-50) carrying the new Time Attack Group package. A numbered dash plaque identifying each of the SRT Viper Anodized Carbon Edition vehicles also is part of the package.
"We've received an overwhelming response to the unique Metallic Matte exterior color since first showing the Anodized Carbon Special Edition Viper late last year," said Ralph Gilles, President and CEO – SRT Brand and Motorsports. "So we're adding even more exclusivity with 10 distinctive SRT Vipers that combine our special exterior color with the new Time Attack Group of performance parts to offer our customers mind-boggling limits on their favorite road courses."
The new Time Attack Group takes all of the functional chassis and aero parts from the Viper TA Special Edition and makes them available on the GTS price class. It includes a carbon fiber rear deck lid spoiler and two-piece front corner splitters to combine for a total of 339 pounds of down force at 150 mph. Also included are two-mode Bilstein dampers specifically tuned for optimal on-track performance and identifiable by their unique orange springs. Street and Race Mode suspension settings offer firmer damping than the Viper GTS. Pirelli P Zero Corsa tires, matte black lightweight forged-aluminum Sidewinder wheels and solid sway bars lead to even more capable handling. Track-duty two-piece Brembo brake rotors, adapted from the 2010 Viper ACR-X race car, add to an increased thermal capacity for additional resistance to brake fade.
As the first and only production application on a Chrysler Group vehicle, the Anodized Carbon Special Edition Package features Metallic Matte Black and satin surface finishes. Satin Black Vapor marks the exhaust bezels, fuel-filler door, and carbon brake ducts and a rear applique (below the liftgate) provide contrast to the Metallic Matte Black body.
An Alcantara-swathed interior with orange stitching adorns the SRT Viper Anodized Carbon Special Edition. An Alcantara headliner, Alcantara-wrapped knee blockers and door bolsters provide interior surface texture contrast, while gunmetal bezels, orange vent accents, and carbon-fiber trim further accent the interior. The Nappa leather and Alcantara-wrapped sport seats feature orange stitching.
