Extreme SRT Viper TA unveiled – limited to 33 units


Not to be outdone by the latest Chevrolet Corvette C7 Stingray or even its C6 ZR1 predecessor, Chrysler/Dodge/SRT (who knows what they call themselves now) has unveiled this track monster, the Viper TA. Limited to just 33 units and painted exclusively in “Crusher Orange”, the TA (for Time Attack) is in essence an extreme handling package for the standard Viper.

The exclusive road-legal supercar does not have any more power than the standard car. What makes it unique is the bits that help it manoeuvre through corners that bit quicker than before. In any case, 640 hp and 815 Nm of torque from the standard 8.4 litre V10 engine is more than fast enough on the straights anyway.

Specifically revised for track duty, the TA features the Viper GTS’ two-mode Bilstein Damptronic suspension system, albeit tuned for firmer levels of damping and a smaller spread between modes – now renamed Smooth and Rough settings instead of the usual Street and Track.


Shock dampers, springs and road racing-derived stabiliser bars have been retuned for optimal on-track performance. Even the standard aluminium structural X-brace in the engine compartment is replaced with a lighter carbonfibre brace. Uprated Brembo brakes housed within ultra-lightweight Sidewinder II wheels complete the mechanical changes.

Exterior wise, aside from the exclusive bright orange paintwork of course, the Viper TA gets a fully-functional aero package that includes carbonfibre front splitters, lip spoiler and rear body panel around the light clusters and number plate holder.

You can be forgiven if you think that the wildly louvered front bonnet is part of the aero package, but it’s not. That’s just how mad the standard SRT Viper looks like. Believe it or not, the Stryker and TA logos around the car are now weight-saving stickers, a la Porsche’s 911 GT3.

Inside, unique Crusher Orange accent stitching across the seats and cabin fittings set the TA apart from lesser Vipers.

    “Chrysler/Dodge/SRT (who knows what they call themselves now)”

    Hafriz, are you just ‘taking the mickey’ or do you really not know what Chrysler groups official positioning on this product. I hope its not the latter because you are an industry insider.

    From 2013 the Viper brand is NO LONGER a Dodge product. It is an SRT product. Chrysler is building up the SRT brand and is positioning the new Viper as SRT’s own product. They have made it clear enough. There is no confusion to those who pay attention to their corporate comm.
