Ralph Gilles' 2013 SRT Viper GTS unveiled in Washington D.C.

Creating one-off vehicles never gets old for the design team at SRT®. Recently the group unveiled a special 2013 SRT Viper GTS for the Sons of Italy Foundation®, destined to be auctioned off, with all proceeds going to the group.

The SRT Viper GTS that was built specifically for the Sons of Italy Foundation features a tri-coat pearl white body dubbed Avorio Perla. One-off multi-spoke black vapor chrome wheels contrast the white body. While sketching possible themes for the car, the SRT design team not only looked at white as the body color, but also considered red and even yellow. Ultimately, the white pearl coat stood out above the rest as a truly unique look. Behind the GTS badge near the front wheels is a small tribute to the Italian colors.

“What’s cool about this white is that it has a lot of travel in the color,” said Mark Trostle, Head of SRT Design. “With it having some of this metallic pearl in it, it really shows off the shapes of the car very well. It catches a lot of light, especially on the hood. In the sunlight, it’s beautiful how it lights up. That’s one of the big pieces that makes the car unique.”

Also included on the Sons of Italy Foundation Viper GTS are black vapor chrome wheels, which is exclusive to SRT, and while available as an option on the Charger, Challenger, 300 and Grand Cherokee the wheels are not currently offered on Viper products.
