As if owning a new 2015 Dodge Viper wasn’t already rewarding enough, Dodge launched the factory-customizable Viper GTC earlier this year for those who had a little extra time and money on their hands. With this program, Dodge promised buyers the ability to build a true “1-of-1” 2015 Viper GTC, with options like 8,000 exterior colors and 24,000 stripe combinations. For 2016, Dodge further ensures that these custom Viper GTCs will not only be one of a kind, but will be equally eye-catching thanks to a new available matte paint finish.
Using the paint method first introduced on the 2014 Dodge Viper Anodized Carbon in 2014, the 2016 Dodge Viper GTC will be able to have a regular matte paint finish or an exclusive metallic matte finish. Dodge didn’t say how long it takes to complete a matte paint job on the new Viper, but the current palette of existing colors takes anywhere from 145 to 160 man-hours to hand paint.
The result is that the 2016 Dodge Viper GTC is now available with double the customizable features, including 16,000 paint colors and 48,000 stripe packages, as well as 16 interior trim combinations, 11 wheel options and various packages for aero kits (seven), suspension options (four) and brake caliper colors (three).
