The SRT Viper GT3-R is collaboration between Chrysler Group’s

Chryler’s SRT Motorsports chose Circuit de la Sarthe to unveil the newest race version of the Viper, officially named the SRT Viper GT3-R.  The Viper GT3-R has been developed as a direct descendant of the SRT Viper street car with a collaboration between SRT Motorsports and Riley Technologies.  Riley is well known in the sports car racing community for their winning Grand-AM Daytona prototypes, to their successful GT racing endeavors.

The SRT Viper GT3-R builds off the knowledge already gained from the ALMS/GT version of the Viper, the GTS-R and has been equipped with a GT3-spec aero kit. The transmission is an Xtrac six-speed sequential transmission with paddle shifters and a multi-disc race clutch, six-piston brake calipers up front and four-piston brake calipers in the rear. Power comes from the iconic V10  engine found in every Viper. Power numbers have not been released, but we expect this to vary based on the needs of the race series the Viper GT3-R will be competing in.

Deliveries to customers begin in late 2013, and prices for the SRT Viper GT3-R begin at $459,000.  We’ll take two.
