It’s the best of both worlds this week at the New York International Auto Show (NYIAS) as two special edition SRT® Vipers have been combined into one amazing vehicle. The Anodized Carbon Special Edition outfitted with the Time Attack (TA) Group makes its first appearance at the show.
As the first and only production application on an SRT 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 rear applique provide contrast to the metallic matte black body.
An Alcantara-swathed interior with orange stitching adorns the SRT Viper Anodized Carbon 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.
Only 50 SRT Viper Anodized Carbon Edition vehicles will be produced, with only 10 (Nos. 41-50) carrying the Time Attack Group. A numbered dash plaque identifying each of the SRT Viper Anodized Carbon Edition vehicles is also part of the package.
“Bringing the Anodized Carbon and the Time Attack track performance package together pairs two special-edition vehicles and results in an even more special SRT Viper for buyers,” says Graham Henckel, Chief Engineer, SRT Viper. “The matte paint has a sinister look, and putting the Time Attack package on just makes the vehicle look that much more menacing. It’s the most sinister looking Gen V car we have built and looks great.”
The unique metallic matte finish has successfully endured extensive testing, with over 30,000 miles of abuse, including extensive sun exposure and testing through extreme Michigan winter weather. This real-world testing exhibits the durability and lasting attributes of the metallic matte paint. Customers will receive a finish that looks great whether they are driving on the street or “tracking” their Anodized Carbon Special Edition Package Viper with the Time Attack Group.
The Time Attack Group features all of the functional chassis and aero parts from the TA Special Edition. 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 in the Time Attack Group 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® 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 ACRX® race car, add to an increased thermal capacity for additional resistance to brake-fade.
“Combining the Time Attack Group with the Anodized Carbon makes for a pretty special and unique car,” says Jeff Reece, Viper Vehicle Integration Engineer. “We tuned it in the wind tunnel to achieve the proper aero balance and provide the customer added grip on the race track. Bottom line, the Time Attack Group provides more grip.”
