Drawing inspiration from the past Viper Coupe, the 2013 SRT Viper Launch Edition will be officially unveiled to the public at this weekends festivities in Monterey as part of “The Quail: A Motorsports Gathering” event.
Color is the most noticeable throwback to Viper Coupes of the past, with the new GTS Launch Edition debuting in GTS blue paint and dual bright white stripes that run the length of the car, completing the classic Viper look that was also featured when the car launched in 1996 and again in 2006. The car will have a limited production run, and each one will be fitted with a serialized dash plaque for added collectability.
Besides the paint job, the Viper GTS Launch Edition gets deep-section design, five-spoke polished forged-aluminum wheels, “stryker” logo with unique blue background, black Laguna leather with contrast stitching throughout the cabin and Alcantara covered headliner.
Under the hood resides the same 8.4-liter V10 powerplant as the standard viper which delivers 640 hp and 600 lb-ft of torque.
“Designed with Viper loyalists in mind, the 2013 SRT Viper GTS Launch Edition model brings back the classic paint schemes that have adorned all previous Viper coupe launches to help us celebrate the return of our brand’s flagship performance machine to the supercar market,” said Ralph Gilles, president and CEO of SRT.
