The SRT Design Team recently worked up something special in honor of Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne. The crew whipped the sheets off of a one-off SRT Viper GTS at a Sons of Italy Foundation gala. The car features special Avorio Perla white paint, one-off black vapor chrome wheels and custom interior touches. The colors of the Italian flag run down the length of the seats, and tri-color GTS badges adorn the exterior.

Marchionne donated his tribute Viper to the Sons of Italy Foundation to be auctioned off to support the charity. The foundation serves as the charitable arm of the Order of the Sons of Italy in America, which represents men and women of Italian descent. Marchionne is a Canadian citizen who was raised in Italy, but recently drew the ire of Italian American groups after a colorful comment regarding the upcoming Alfa Romeo 4C. You can refresh your memory about that dustup here. You can also check out the special Viper in the video below.

      I'd rather drive the Oscar Meyer Weiner Mobile. Now, before you hate on me, that rig comes with all the 'dogs you can eat. And room for some hoochie-goochie.

      It will spend most of its time in the shop like most of them do.

        Yes, this brand new version of the Viper will spend a lot of time in the shop, like most of these brand new Vipers do.... Trust me, if there was a rolling eyes graphic available, I\'d use it a million times here.

        Yeah.......the Viper definitely isn't nearly as bulletproof as a Ferrari, Lambo, or Porche. Right....... Cue the Chrysler/Detroit haters. The checks from the RNC as well as the German and Korean car industries must have cleared for all of the payed trolls.

      White does not look good on that car.

      Looks like a bar of soap after the fourth shower. I'd rather own a '40 Ford.

      Not sure they could have made it any more bland. I've always liked the viper, but this new model seems to have taken a step backwards visually, i wouldn't be surprised if the idiots that ruined the srt8 cherokee helped design it.

      So Marchionne\'s a re-gifter? Don\'t feel bad, Dodge... Unlike Marchionne, I (as well as many people on this site) would have appreciated the car VERY, VERY much.

      So proud of my Italian heritage. From immigrant, to orphan, to a son with a BA ,MS, and PD all in two generations. It makes me proud to be an American where Italians have been able to made such a successful transition to the heights of business, government, medicine, education and the arts. God bless America the home of Italian greatness anew. Class move Sergio.

        Why would someone down vote this? I'm happy you're proud of yourself and your heritage, and that other guy is a douche.
