Gallery: Dodge Viper Available in Custom Metallic Matte Color


Dodge has done it yet again with raising the bar another level with their flagship Viper.  With the addition of matte-finish exterior paint across the full 1 of 1 Viper program color palette, it increases the available unique configurations for the 2016 model year to more than 50 million adding onto their already more than 16,000 unique paint color options and more than 48,000 unique stripe combinations.

“The Anodized Carbon edition Viper was the first-ever use of this unique metallic matte exterior color by Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (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.”


Each Viper has an extremely high quality level paint finish that ranks as one of the best in the industry. The application of the exterior paint is a detailed and intricate process. With every Viper built, it takes between 145 to 160 man hours to prep and hand-paint the Viper sculpted body panels. The paint process starts with a rich base color coat followed by the application of a clear finish.

After paint and clear coat has been applied, every body panel is sanded for hours by hand with 1,000 grit paper and polished to a near mirror finish. To create the Viper’s new matte finish, each body panel is painstakingly sanded for a second time before the matte clear paint is applied. Each coat application adds depth and accentuates the curvature of the Viper’s sweeping exterior design.

The new matte paint finishes are available to order from your dealer today!
