The 2013 SRT Viper GTS caught sporting metallic blue near Detroit
We have all seen the 2013 SRT Viper in the deep metallic red at the debut along with the recent images of the bright red 2013 Viper with red stripes. There have been some spyshots floating around the internet of a 2013 Viper in yellow (a color that I saw while behind the walls of the company proving grounds without my camera) and now it looks as though the metallic blue caught in the images on the right could be the next color option for the new Viper when production begins later this year.
While driving around the Metro Detroit are this past weekend, we spied some unique LED headlights that could only belong to one car – the 2013 SRT Viper. Unlike the red and yellow test “mule” Vipers we have seen previously touring the roads of the Detroit area, this one wore a gorgeous dark metallic blue that looks to be similar in hue to the metallic blue that debuted with the original hard-topped Viper GTS Coupe back in 1996. Considering that the 2013 SRT Viper is so much like the original Viper Coupe right down to the GTS designation and the new GTS-R race Viper – it seems only natural that this blue would be among the color choices. Notice that unlike the metallic blue Viper coupes of the late 1990s, the test car shown on the right does not have any white stripes but it does have the black taillight panel.
