2014 Detroit Motor Show saw the debut of a new color for the SRT Viper super car called Stryker Green. There is more to this car though, than just a new lick of paint. The Stryker Green Viper brings along with it the new Grand Touring Package and an aero kit.
As with most colors used by high-performance Chrysler products, there is a history behind the Stryker Green color. It is an evolution of the iconic Snakeskin Green exterior color that first appeared in 2008, which features enhanced green and yellow pigments and a “liquid mercury” appearance. The color works especially well with the Vipers fitted with the GT package, which is why it can’t be had on the cars without it.
The Grand Touring package for the SRT Viper includes standard Nappa leather seats, five-mode Electronic Stability Control and the two-mode Bilstein DampTronic Select suspension, both previously only available with the Viper GTS price class. The GT option package will be limited to the new Stryker Green and Venom Black exterior colors.
The new carbon fiber aero kit is also an interesting addition to the Stryker Green SRT Viper on display at NAIAS, featuring a Mopar carbon fiber rear wing and extended front corner splitters. IT makes the car look more racy, but we’re not sure it’s going to have that big an effect on its aerodynamic efficiency.
