As you may recall, a while ago Chrysler announced a new customization program for the new Dodge Viper models called ‘1 of 1’ with over 25 million personalization possibilities. Now as if that wasn’t enough, they announced the program now offers a series of new matte paint finishes as well.
That means that instead of 8,000 exterior color options and 24,000 stripe options, Dodge Viper ‘1 of 1’ program now offers 16,000 exterior colors and 48,000 unique strip combinations, or 50 million unique build configurations. God knows how long it takes to go through them all. Ordering a new Viper can be the single longest shopping experience of your life!
The new matte paint jobs available for the 2016 Dodge Viper are top-notch, hand-finished jobs that takes between 145 to 160 man hours to prep and hand-paint. To create the new matte finish, each body panel is also sanded for a second time before the matte clear paint is applied. The paint work is then complemented with a range of stripes available in Black Venom, Billet Silver, Bright White, Gunmetal Pearl and Adrenaline Red or from the custom “1 of 1” color palette.
“The Anodized Carbon Viper was the first-ever use of this unique metallic matte exterior color by FCA and helped further the trend in automotive matte finish exteriors from the factory,” said Tim Kuniskis, President and CEO, Dodge and SRT brands, FCA US. “Now, by adding 8,000 new matte finish options to our high-end, hand-built hand-painted super car, we’re continuing at the forefront of the matte paint trend by offering so many variations, colors and even a metallic finish, all of which give each “1 of 1” Viper an even more unique appearance.”
