2014 SRT Viper TA Hits the Track

After Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 beat the SRT Viper GTS at Raceway Laguna Seca, in a race conducted by Motor Trend, Chrysler’s performance division reveals a much more venomous opponent, the Viper TA.

The TA (Time Attack) package is built for “the dedicated track enthusiast, who still wants to drive to the track and take their hobby to the next level” as SRT’s President and CEO, Ralph Gilles puts it.

“We’re re-launching some of the fastest production-built cars that people can buy straight from the factory. Our engineers revised the suspension settings to refocus the Viper specifically for track duty, using a blend of components from the GTS and the SRT models, add in the extensively developed aero package and the new Time Attack package is born. We’re not only saluting the existing capabilities of our current models, we’re also targeting another niche in our customer base with a tremendously capable track machine,” Gilles ads

As the car is built for the raceway, the TA model has been fitter with many racing purpose items such as new springs and anti-roll bars, retuned Bilstein Damptronic dampers, a carbon fiber engine-bay brace, carbon fiber spoilers and a new set of Pirelli PZero Corsa tires. The engine is still the same 8.4-liter V10 with 640 hp and 813 Nm (600 lb-ft) torque.

Only 33 Viper TAs in special “Crusher Orange” finish will be available beginning third quarter 2013.
