The Dodge Viper - or is it SRT Viper - hasn’t exploded the way Dodge had hoped for. The hype and attention being thrown in the direction of the Charger and Challenger Hellcat models hasn’t helped the Viper win any brownie points either. It’s a shame because the Viper’s a really intense sports car . Fortunately, Dodge has thrown the Viper a bone of sorts by introducing a special Viper GTS Ceramic Blue Edition that should give the sports car the shine it deserves.
The Viper GTS Ceramic Blue Edition is limited to just 40 units. It’s probably going to sell out quickly given its exclusive status. But merely being ‘exclusive’ isn’t what makes this model special.
The Ceramic Blue paint finish gives the Viper GTS a special kind of shine. Add the black stripes and the set of five-spoked “Rattler” wheels finished in Black Vapor Chrome and this Viper GTS suddenly looks like a crowd-pleasing, road-blazing terror on four wheels.
Hyperbole aside, the Viper GTS Ceramic Blue Edition fits a need for the Viper, which hasn’t met the kind of sales volume Dodge intended it to have.
Dodge needs to give the Viper a fresh look, especially after the attention the Hellcat twins have received the past month. Maybe the Viper GTS Ceramic Blue Edition is the answer. But at the very least, it’s a step in the right direction for a sports car that hasn’t received the credit it deserves.
