SRT has taken the wraps off their new Viper GT3-R.
Jointly developed with Riley Technologies, the GT3-R is described as the "direct descendent of the high performance GTS-R campaigned by SRT Motorsports in the LM GTE Pro Class at the 24 Hours of Le Mans and the American Le Mans Series (ALMS)."
As a result, the model has a carbon fiber/ Kevlar/ fiberglass body and an aerodynamic body kit with front dive planes, a front splitter, fender louvers, a rear diffuser and an adjustable rear wing. There's also a race-spec suspension with conventionally-mounted coil-over springs, four-way adjustable dampers and crew-adjustable anti-roll bars.
Interior pictures were not released but SRT says the model has an FIA-spec roll cage, an on-board fire suppression system and a racing seat with a six-point harness.
Power is provided by an 8.4-liter (8383cc) V10 engine that develops an estimated 680 bhp (507 kW) and 640 lb-ft (868 Nm) of torque. It is connected to an Xtrac six-speed sequential transmission with a multi-disc race clutch. This setup should enable the 1295 kg (2855 lb) racecar to be an absolute rocket.
The Viper GT3-R is currently available for order and pricing is expected to start at roughly $459,000 (€347,750 / £297,050). Deliveries are scheduled for later this year and the model will be eligible to compete in a variety of series including FIA GT3, United SportsCar Racing GT Daytona, Pirelli World Challenge GT, NARRA, and SCCA/NASA.
