For 2016, the Dodge Viper will offer new matte-finish paint options, doubling the number of exterior colors available to consumers. Now, the Viper is available in more than 16,000 unique paint options, not to mention 48,000 different striping combinations.

Every Viper model – including GT, GTC, GTS, and ACR models – offer "GTS" stripes that run the length of the coupe. Also available are "SRT" stripes on SRT and GTC models. Along with these options, Viper customers can choose between satin chrome or satin black instrument panel badging and fuel filler door for an even more customized look.

The near-endless color options are available thanks to a unique hand-painted process that each Viper receives before it reaches buyers. From start to finish, painting the Viper takes 145 to 160 man hours including prep work. Applying the paint itself is an 8-hour process, while stripes require 18 hours of work. Matte-finished Vipers must also be sanded twice, and then applied with a coat of clear paint.
