The SRT® Viper GT3-R is the direct descendent of the high performance GTS-R GTE class racer campaigned by SRT Motorsports in the 2013 24 Hours of Le Mans and the American Le Mans Series. Virtually all of the technology developed by the Chrysler Group for the factory GTS-Rs for engine, chassis, suspension, electronics and aerodynamics is infused into every Viper GT3-R. All of it. It’s your chance to get the knowledge of a factory race program in a 200 mph* striped package. The SRT Viper GT3-R builds upon the success of the GTS-R. The chassis has been equipped with a highly efficient aerodynamic package to optimize handling. Further racing enhancements include an 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 to help extract maximum performance from the V-10 engine.
Winning in motor racing is achieved through hard work, dedication and using the best tools available. The SRT® Viper GT3-R offers the chance to experience all of the Viper engineering and technology developed over years of international road racing. It offers a chance to be a part of the Viper legacy. The GT3-R is designed for the private racer who has the determination to win on an international level, but who desires to be competitive at a competitive price. In addition to eligibility for competition in GT3 championships worldwide, the GT3-R is ready for the United SportsCar Series GT Daytona, Pirelli World Challenge GT class, NARRA, SCCA and other GT categories. Pick your series, pick your goal, and get there with the SRT Viper GT3-R.
