Dodge SRT Viper TA-14

It looks really menacing and has plenty of venom – meet the 2014 Dodge SRT Viper TA that debuted at the 2013 New York Auto Show. We’ve already seen a few pics of it, but here’s a full gallery of the fierce Crusher Orange street-legal and single-spec 2014 SRT Viper TA.

The TA (for Time Attack) is powered by an all-aluminum 8.4 litre, mid-front V10 engine with 640 horsepower and 813 Nm of torque – the most torque of any naturally aspirated sports car engine in the world.

The suspension on this Viper is uniquely tuned specifically for on-track usage and to maximise the performance of the Pirelli P Zero Corsa tyres, which surround lightweight, multi-spoke Sidewinder II wheels. A two-mode Bilstein Damptronic suspension system features firmer levels of damping and a smaller spread between modes than what is found on the current Viper GTS models.

Shock dampers, springs and road racing derived stabiliser bars have been retuned for optimal on-track performance. The standard aluminum structural X-brace is replaced with a lighter carbon fibre unit that effectively ties the four corners of the engine compartment together and contributes to the 50% increase in torsional rigidity and stiffness across the Viper lineup.

Based on the “outstanding performance of the world-class brake system” on the 2013 SRT Viper, SRT engineers worked in parallel with Brembo on a system that increases thermal capacity and optimises heat dissipation. The brake calipers feature a black anodised finish with the Viper logo.

Inside, SRT chose premium ballistic fabric racing seats from Sabelt, featuring a lightweight fiberglass shell created by resin transfer molding tech for mass reduction and long-term durability. Both seats can also accommodate a three- or six-point harness for racing belts.

Only 33 units of the 2014 SRT Viper TA in Crusher Orange will be built at the Conner Avenue Assembly Plant in Detroit, beginning in the third quarter of this year. Truly hardcore.
