    So I've seen the blue, yellow & new red in person. But looking at the colors is tough, I got the new Viper mag & it has a page with the colors on little car models & 3 look black. I'm really interested in what the Charcoal Pearl looks like. And is one of those "black" looking cars really a dark blue? I guess one must be the charcoal too, seem awefully dark in that mag pic.

    I took this from my camera phone in Idaho Springs last Sunday afternoon. Dick Winkles, Mike Jobe and two other engine techs met me there so I could see the cars in person. They were staying in Keystone and agreed to meet me half way. I took a ride with Dick in the yellow GTS. These were pre-production mules 11,12&13. Thanks to coloviper for making this happen and an even bigger thanks to the Viper team!!!

    My son will give me pressure on that dark blue, he loves that super dark blue look.

    Just wish we had a better look at them. But in time ....

    SRT realizes that the colors are hard to view off of the website and they are working on it.

    Most have so far seen the white, GTS Blue, Yellow , Stryker Red , and Red. Black is not hard to visualize , so the ones everyone is really wondering about is the Gunmetal and the darker blue.

    Rumors are just a bit darker than graphite with a bit more metallic in it, and almost as dark as Sapphire Blue , but with less of that purple tinge -- but again , just rumors, so hopefully we will see stuff soon that will lay our curiosity to rest?

    Bob;

    Glad you met up with the SRT Team last weekend. Great group of guys and boy can they chug aged Root Beer at TommyKnockers! Ha! Ha! Now if I could just get that fully loaded GTS (in my price range) with $50K discount, then I could stop beating myself up becuase I don't have that current level of available funds to put towards it.

    Then again I am holding out for the "Black Magic" paint to come out in a year or two. Normally is Black but changes 17 different colors depending on sun angle and reflection. Similar to BASF Mystic used 17 years ago. Then again that will be a $25K paint job none the less.

    The guy that road with me when I drove the yellow 2013 said they do have a mule in the gunmetal, but that car you'll not see, but he said it was "sinister" looking. Now that's a word I strive to achieve with every car I own, so I can't wait to see it - although I'm afraid if I see ans SRT in gunmetal pearl with track pack, black wheels, aero pack, god help me, I may not be able to resist a gen5. So I should want them to take their time as I'm looking to bait my own hook lol.

    We really need some pics of the gunmetal and the black mules plus better pics of what the hyper black actually looks like on the rims.

    Saw a black GTS with gunmetal stripes. The stripes were so dark you could hardly see them. Some will like that. The hyper black wheels are lighter, more like graphite, and I like them better than the matt black wheels. I think the GTS-R has hyper black wheels----definitely not matt black.

    I thought one of the colors was going to be the graphite pearl on the GTS-R...I'm definitely bummed about that.

    Notice how red with white stripes isn't an option? I smell another special edition.

    Yeah I don't get the labeling. Hyper suggests blacker than black, is this color more of a dark grey?

    It's a very, very dark grey----not like the pictures of the wheels on the wall. It is also shiny----you will not think it is too light. But the matt black is the darker of the two colors by a shade and is not what I would choose.

    I agree, I don't care for the black wheels/tires that disappear into the black wheel wells. I'm guessing the stryker red show car wheels are hyper black?

    I think they both will look fantastic but depending on which body color you choose, light or dark. as in that yellow srt and as in the gts-r.

    No, they are not. The six spoke Venom on the show car has polished faces and painted pockets. I can't say for sure if the pockets are painted hyper black or if they are lighter. The six spoke in Hyper Black will be darker than the show car, but light enough not to disappear into the wheel wells(I think)---disappearing into the wheel wells is exactly the look I don't like, too. I like the other wheels ok but my favorite wheel is the Sidewinder II (Track Pack) in Hyper Black. I saw the SRT in Race Yellow with black stripes and the Hyper Black Track Pack wheels, and it is awesome.....

    I just took a tour of the Conner plant and man is it a clean and amazing facility. We were not allowed to take pictures of the plant floor itself, but they let us bring our cameras anyways for taking pics of the historic Vipers. I couldn't resist and took a few zoom shots. These two are probably ok to post because they don't show much of the plant. I saw Black, Red, Stryker Red, Yellow, Blue, Gunmetal, darker blue, and REALLY darker blue, which is Ralph's car and probably not a production color because it looked like saphire blue.

    You can see the really dark stipes on the black one to the right.

    Very cool shot of the two black cars; thank you so much for posting this.

    I'm really torn between the black with gunmetal stripes and the gunmetal with black stripes. Either way, I think the black rims look killer.

    Bill - thanks for the input. Sounds like the matte black is too dark for your tastes but would you have that same opinion of the hyper black?

    the pic with the two black cars and stripes i dont see a problem with except maybe pics of the stripes, the yellow one i dont realy see a problem with either because isnt that around the same general area that they took pics of the stryker? but i would've gotten consent however that is done. ahwell, it was nice when it was up, maybe i missed something "top secret":rolleyes:
