Powered by an updated engine which now produces 680 horsepower and 640 lb-ft (868 Nm) of torque, the Viper GT3-R also features optimized aerodynamics. Other features include Xtrac six-speed sequential transmission with paddle shifters, six-piston front brake calipers with four-piston rears, lightweight wheels and a multi-disc race clutch.

The race car was developed in partnership with Riley Technologies in Mooresville and will be available for order from an estimated $459,000, though deliveries are scheduled for late 2013.

"The SRT Viper GT3-R is the next logical progression of our successful Viper GTS-R, a championship-proven formula that has captured some of the world's most prestigious races," Ralph Gilles said.
