Hurst to build limited-edition 50th Anniversary Viper

Hurst Performance Vehicles has just announced that it will be building a limited edition series Hurst/Viper to celebrate the company’s 50th anniversary. The 50th Anniversary Hurst/Viper will feature “an impressive list of performance enhancements and classic Hurst color combinations.” Hurst will only make 50 units that it will begin building in later this month.

No official performance figures have been release as of yet but Hurst says the limited-edition Viper will feature “the new Hurst HARD-DRIVE gold pistol-grip shifter, Hurst forged aluminum wheels, Katzkin leather interior, Michelin Pilot Sport PS2 tires, Corsa exhaust and Moton Club Sport adjustable coil-over suspension with Eibach springs.”

The 50th Anniversary Hurst/Viper will be available in combinations of Black with Gold stripes and White with Gold stripes to honor the Golden Anniversary. Inside the special-edition viper will feature special Katzkin charcoal leather with Hurst embroidered logos and gold thread detailing with perforated leather inserts.

Unit No.1 will feature a unique flat-finish Hurst Gold exterior paint, black racing stripes and black-chrome Hurst wheels. It will be auctioned off at the 2009 Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale Auction on January 17th alongside the first unit of the 2010 Chevrolet Camaro.
