Curiously, I've changed my mind on most Viper colors when I saw them in person, so I now put less weight in my impressions of photos. That said, I think I will really like the Competition Blue when I see it first hand.

I'd slap the carbon aero kit on it primarily for track performance, but it will also look bad *** with this blue, just like the TA's bright orange does.

This ^^^^^^^ !! Some colors photograph much better than others. That color doesn't excite me on the computer screen; but, I've thought the same on other colors that look great in person. Its all personal taste, anyway.

I got to say I'm not really a fan of that blue from these pics. I think the Stryker green looks better at least in pics. As mentioned, in person I might change my mind.

Painted crosshairs would probably look terrible with this bright of a color imho. You might get away with doing that with the darker colors. I prefer it black.

SMURF!!! Reminds me of my brothers LSB E46 M3. Never thought about the color until you see in person; it was awesome. Only downside, no matter where you went, even in an M3, the attention was Viper level!

Still awesome car but I would take the midnight pearl blue from 2013, just not sure about the lighter, "powder" color. Again, it would still rock and be an unreal car, but not my choice if others were available. For collectibiility and standing out @ Viper gatherings, you would have a very low "1 of #"....

Amazing color! Didn't think I would be a huge fan, but seeing these pictures, it really does show off the lines of the car very well and the color is pretty bad ***. I think comp blue looks better just by itself without any stripes, which is contrary to how I feel about most other colors on this car. Only other color I wouldn't put stripes on is Stryker Red.

This color might be my second choice behind Stryker Red. Now if only it wasn't such an expensive option.....

You just took me back to 2003. I remember when the M3 in LSB came out it was quite a topic on M3 Forums. I actually like seeing the Viper in that color, but I would never opt for it. JD

Actually that is an old Mopar color. Looks very similar to Petty Blue from the "old days". King Richard drove the #43 with that color for years.
