SRT Unveils Viper GT3-R Racer

Motorsport

Borrowing many of the performance tech from the Viper GTS-R set to run at Le Mans, the GT3-R model will be ready to race at the end of the year.

After over a decade away, SRT Motorsport will return to Le Mans this weekend fielding a pair of new factory-backed SRT Viper GTS-R race cars. And to mark the occasion SRT has unveiled the new Viper GT3-R available to private race teams for the princely sum of $459,000. For that, teams will be able to compete in GT3 classes across the globe in a Viper powered by the stock model’s 8.4-liter V10 unrestricted to 680 hp and 640 lb-ft of torque. Co-developed with Riley Technologies, the model boasts a body made of carbon fiber, Kevlar and fiberglass.

Other features include an aero body kit with adjustable rear wing, a race-spec suspension, Xtrac six-speed sequential box, lightweight alloys and a multi-disc race clutch. Orders of the GT3 race car are being taken now with delivery penciled in for late 2013.
