The SRT Viper TA (Time Attack) is the Viper for track rats and those who want a more dedicated track package from the all-new Viper that debuted for the 2013 model year. Power remains the same at a chest-thumping 640 horsepower, and the package offers a more road-race-oriented suspension and aerodynamic package while remaining street legal.
It's also bright Crusher Orange, the only color available on the 33 planned production examples, and a single-spec trim level with no optional equipment.
An adjustable two-mode suspension borrowed from the up-level SRT Viper GTS combines with the low weight of the "entry-level" SRT Viper base model to make up the package's most notable change besides the retina-burning Crusher Orange paint. It's not a straight swap, however, as the two-mode Bilstein adjustable suspension is retuned with more track-oriented shocks, springs and road-racing derived stabilizer bars. The SRT brand says the TA has a smaller spread between the levels of dampening found on the Viper GTS models.
