SRT offered two versions of the Viper; the SRT Viper and the GTS. The GTS is the premium model offering more creature comforts over the base model. The most notable exterior difference between the two models is the hood. The base model has six functional hood vents while the GTS model only has two. To commemorate the return of the Viper, in 2013 SRT offered a ‘launch edition’ package available on 150 GTS models. All launch editions were painted in Viper Blue with twin white stripes, came with a serialized dash plaque placed inside their cabins, and their interiors are swathed in Black Laguna leather with contrast stitching.
