Hurst shows off its 50th Anniversary Viper

Hurst Viper fq

Hurst, known traditionally for its shifters has recently unveiled the car that will mark its 50th year of building specialty performance vehicles under the banner of Hurst Performance. That car is named the 50th Anniversary Hurst/Viper. Since performance modifications to the Viper’s 600-hp 8.4L V10 engine are completely unnecessary, Hurst have focused mostly on the aesthetics. The Hurst/Viper, of which only 50 will be made, comes only in two color combos that commemorate the official colors of the company: gold with black stripes or white with gold stripes. It wouldn’t be a Hurst car without a Hurst shifter, so these special Vipers will be fitted with the company’s new gold anodized pistol grip shifter. Also from Hurst’s aftermarket range are 19- and 20-inch polished aluminum wheels wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport PS2 tires. The interior is finished in Katzkin charcoal leather that’s embroidered with the Hurst logo and touched off with gold stitching and perforated leather inserts.

On the performance side Hurst has added a Corsa exhaust and Moton Club Sport adjustable coil-over suspension. The first of 50 examples will be auctioned off next week at the Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale auction in Arizona, USA with all proceeds being donated to a local charity.
