"We're relaunching some of the fastest production-built cars that people can buy straight from the factory," said Ralph Gilles, president and CEO of SRT Brand and Motorsports, in a statement. "Our engineers revised the suspension settings to refocus the Viper specifically for track duty, using a blend of components from the GTS and SRT models. Add in the extensively developed aero package and the new Time Attack package is born."
The SRT Viper TA gets a two-mode Bilstein Damptronic suspension system featuring firmer levels of damping and a smaller spread between modes than what is found on the current Viper GTS models. Shock dampers, springs and road racing-derived stabilizer bars have been retuned for optimal on-track performance.
SRT engineers are working with Brembo on a brake system that can handle extreme use, Chrysler noted. The brake calipers on the 2014 SRT Viper TA get a black anodized finish with the Viper logo in Crusher Orange.
The car also gets an aerodynamics package that bundles carbon fiber front splitters and rear spoiler.
The SRT Viper TA is spun off the SRT Viper model and is equipped with a 640-horsepower 8.4-liter V10 engine. Curb weight of the car is estimated at 3,348 pounds.
The cabin gets a standard black interior with Crusher Orange accent stitching on the cloth seats. Driver and passenger seats can accommodate a three- or six-point harness for racing belts.
Edmunds says: The 2014 SRT Viper TA is all about targeting track records.
