Fans Vote to Name the SRT Viper’s New Color "Competition Blue"
Back in October, SRT requested some help from fans of the new Viper to come up with a name for its newly developed blue paint. After 11,000 entries, the winner was finally announced today. The new paint will be called "Competition Blue," which was contributed by Patryk Skarzynski from Chicago.
For his winning contribution, Patryk gets a trip to the 2014 Rolex 24 Hours at Daytona at the Daytona International Speedway where he will experience the race with the SRT Viper design team.
An SRT Viper coated in this new Competition Blue was displayed at SRT’s booth at the 2013 SEMA Show. Along with this cool, new hue, the Viper at SEMA also featured a Mopar carbon-fiber X-brace in the engine compartment and a silver Stryker logo on the X-brace. On the inside, this Viper had a Mopar stainless-steel pedal kit with rubber grip inserts and a Mopar carbon-fiber satchel between the driver and passenger seat.

The 2014 Viper is priced from $93,395 and the GTS version from $126,490.
