“As soon as the Dodge Viper hit the streets in the early 1990s, independent race teams began modifying the vehicle for GT racing. Over the next few years, the first generation Dodge Viper evolved into a purpose-built vehicle that was suitable for competition and the Dodge Viper GTS-R was introduced in 1996. As the Dodge brand was not sold in Europe, the Viper was badged as a Chrysler overseas and a Dodge in North America. The GTS-R went on to win every prestigious motorsport event in the world. While Chrysler ended its official backing in 2001, the GTS-R continued racing well into 2007 with much success. The Dodge Viper GTS-R will go down as one of the most successful factory-backed racing vehicles in history,” stated the press release.
The Museum is located on Chrysler Group’s headquarters in Auburn Hills, Mich. and is open for self-guided tours, including access to the Born to Race exhibition.
