Shown for the first time at the New York International Auto Show today, the all-new Anodized Carbon Special Edition takes all of the functional chassis and aero parts from the Time Attack Group Special Edition and makes them available on the GTS price class.
After receiving an overwhelming response to the unique metallic matte exterior paint job first showcased on the Anodized Carbon Special Edition Viper last year, SRT decided to manufacture 10 distinctive Vipers that combine the special color with all the performance parts included in the Time Attack Group Package.

All 10 special edition vehicles get a carbon fiber rear deck lid spoiler and two-piece front corner splitter for a grand total of 339 pounds (153.7 kilograms) of down force at 150 miles per hour (241 km/h). Two-mode Bilstein dampers specifically tuned for optimal on-track performance and identifiable by their unique orange springs are also included, while stopping power comes from track-duty two-piece Brembo brake rotors adapted from the 2010 Viper ACR-X race car.

In addition to the metallic matte paint, the aesthetic pack also includes black wheels and exhaust bezels, special badging, orange brake calipers and carbon fiber brake cooling ducts. There's plenty of carbon accenting on the interior as well, with added Alcantara everything and orange stitching.

Under the hood, the all-aluminium 8.4-liter naturally aspirated V10 produces the same 640 horsepower and 600 lb-ft (813 Nm) of torque as the standard Viper GTS. If you just want the looks without the stiff suspension, good news: 40 SRT Viper Anodized Carbon Special Edition vehicles will be produced.

Better get your chequebook ready cause all these 50 babies will sell like hot cakes. However, you'll have to wait until early 2015 for the first car to roll off the assembly line.
