Chrysler’s SRT brand will display the 2013 Viper GTS Launch Edition during the Monterey/Pebble Beach weekend. A sneak peek will take place at The Quail on Friday, Aug. 17, before the car hits the Concept Lawn at the Pebble Beach Concours. SRT says the Launch Edition was inspired by the two previous-generation Viper reveals in 1996 and 2006.

The paint scheme for the Launch Edition cars will be GTS blue with two white racing stripes. It will also carry a serialized dash plaque that SRT says aligns the build-sequence number to the vehicle identification number. It will also have a special Stryker badge on the steering wheel.

“Designed with Viper loyalists in mind, the 2013 SRT Viper GTS Launch Edition model brings back the classic paint schemes that have adorned all previous Viper coupe launches, to help us celebrate the return of our brand’s flagship performance machine to the supercar market,” said Ralph Gilles, SRT brand and design chief for Chrysler.

The GTS Launch Edition will wear five-spoke, polished and forged aluminum wheels with the Stryker logo over red-painted calipers.

The 2013 SRT Viper and Viper GTS will hit dealerships in the fourth quarter of this year with an all-aluminum 8.4-liter V10 engine producing 640 hp and 600 lb-ft of torque.
