The staggering Dodge SRT Viper GT3-R is here
Viper and SRT – two famous names that perfectly describe the American supercar. Their business has just been literally boosted by the unveiling of the Dodge SRT Viper GT3-R.
The monster was reportedly developed alongside Riley Technologies, having been described as the “direct descendent of the high performance GTS-R campaigned by SRT Motorsports in the LM GTE Pro Class at the 24 Hours of Le Mans and the American LeMans Series (ALMS).” The ferocious Viper boasts with a carbon fiber / Kevlar / fiberglass body and an aerodynamic body kit with front dive panels, fender louvers, rear diffuser, front splitter and adjustable rear wing. The makers have also added a race-spec suspension with four-way adjustable dampers, crew-adjustable anti-roll bars and coilover springs in conventional setup.
Unfortunately, the brands haven’t yet released any photos of the interior, but, according to SRT specialists, the model sports an FIA-spec roll-cage, racing seat with 6-point harness and on-board fire suspension system. In terms of power, the SRT Viper GT3-R draws muscle from an 8.4-liter (8383 cc) V10 engine delivering around 680 HP (507 kW) and 868 Nm (640 lb-ft) of torque. The power plant is mated to an Xtrac 6-speed sequential transmission with multi-disc race clutch. The performance figures of the muscle car might as well be put alongside rockets, due to this impressive configuration.
The SRT Viper GT3-R is, as we speak, available for order. The prices will reportedly start around $459,000 (€348,000 or £295,050), while deliveries are expected to start later on, this year. Moreover, the car is eligible for taking part at all sorts of competition series, like SCCA/NASA, NARRA, United SportsCar Racing GT Daytona, FIA GT3, NARRA, Pirelli World Challenge and many more.
