680bhp SRT Viper GT3-R with more bite— set to dom­i­nate­world­wide GT com­pe­ti­tion

Pri­vate race teams

plan­ning to com­pete in GT3 classes, re­joice! Your car is here. This is the SRT Viper GT3-R— a V10-pow­ered beast that looks set to dom­i­nate world-class com­pe­ti­tions. It’s the lat­est gen­er­a­tion of the Viper GTS-R and has been de­vel­oped by Chrysler Group’s SRT Mo­tor­sports team. That means this is a se­ri­ous piece of kit.

Built in col­lab­o­ra­tion with Ri­ley Tech­nolo­gies, the GT3-R fea­tures a chas­sis equipped with an aero­dy­namic pack­age to help im­prove han­dling, not to men­tion an Xtrac six-speed se­quen­tial trans­mis­sion with pad­dle shifters, six-pis­ton front-brake cal­lipers with four-pis­ton rears, light­weight wheels and a multi-disc race clutch. A stock Viper is no slouch, pro­duc­ing 640bhp and 813Nm of torque, but the GT3-R’s un­re­stricted V10 is much mad­der; it has 680bhp and 867Nm of torque. Wowsers!

In a track world that is largely dom­i­nated by Porsches, the new SRT Viper GT3-R looks set to ruf­fle a few feath­ers.

SRT Viper GT3-R uses many of the same per­for­mance tech­nolo­gies as the GTS-R
