2014 SRT Viper TA (Time Attack) Special Edition Details

Like Mercedes-Benz has its own performance leg called AMG, and BMW has its M performance division, Chrysler gets its performance jobs done by SRT, both being a part of Fiat Group. And for the year 2014, SRT has announced the Viper TA (Time Attack) which is a track-ready version of the standard Viper and is scheduled to arrive in dealerships by the end of 2013.

“The new 2014 SRT Viper TA is engineered for the serious performance enthusiast who needs a car that can be driven daily yet has mind-boggling limits on a road course that would rival many track-only cars. As one of the best handling and fastest supercars available on the market today, the TA enables our customers to take their passion for high performance driving to the next level,” said Ralph Gilles, President and CEO — SRT Brand, Chrysler Group LLC. “The SRT engineering team set out to create a world-class supercar that has few competitors on the track or the road at any price.”

Some of the major highlights of the 2014 SRT Viper TA are as follows:
  • Unique race-tuned calibration for the two-mode Bilstein DampTronic suspension system, retuned springs, shocks and road-racing derived sway bars offer firmer levels of damping and a smaller spread between modes than what is found on the Viper GTS
  • Lighter, carbon fiber structural X-brace replaces the standard aluminum brace under the hood and ties the four corners of the engine compartment together, contributing to the 50-percent increase in torsional rigidity and stiffness across the Viper lineup
  • New Brembo two-piece, 32-millimeters wide, high-thermal capacity rotors and pads that optimize heat dissipation
  • Advanced Aerodynamics Package includes carbon fiber front splitters and rear spoiler to boost downforce at higher speeds – up to a 700-percent increase at 150 mph
  • Standard Pirelli P Zero Corsa tires are mounted on ultra-lightweight, multi-spoke Sidewinder II wheels.
  • The brake calipers feature a black anodized finish with the Viper logo shown in TA Orange.
  • A carbon fiber rear applique accentuates the rear width proportions and adds another level of detail

Powering the 2014 SRT Viper TA is an all-aluminum 8.4-liter, mid-front V-10 overhead-valve engine which develops 640 horsepower and 600 lb.-ft. of torque – the most torque delivering engine in the world.

The cabin is completely driver-oriented featuring premium ballistic fabric racing seats from Sabelt, a lightweight fiberglass shell created by a state-of-the-art resin transfer molding technology, a 3- or 6-point harness for racing belts, and unique orange accent stitching on the cloth seats, instrument panel (through the cowl), center stack, console, pull brake, shifter boot, shifter head, steering wheel and upper doors.

SRT will build 159 units of the Viper TA - 93 units in TA Orange, 33 in Venom Black and 33 in Bright White paint scheme.
