American Racer Built For World Dominance

Viper has a deep heritage in motorsports, with racing being a major part of the Viper DNA. From contending for wins to showcasing the Viper on the race track — its true home — the list of successes is long. Everything learned during the development of the GEN 5 Viper was applied when designing the Dodge Viper SRT® GTS-R race car. Knowledge gleaned from the GTS-R at the race track will forever play a role in future development of the production model.

Racing Evolution

Starting with a blank canvas and a very tight timeframe, SRT® designers and engineers set to create a new generation of a world-class race car that exited the sport on top in 2000. In roughly a six-month period beginning in the fall of 2011, the Viper GTS-R took shape and was revealed to the public in April, 2012, at the New York Auto Show, and hit the track later in the summer.
