Viper TA: more info, numbers

SRT-Viper-TA-F34-Web

The 2014 SRT Viper TA (Time Attack) was created for road-race drivers; it is a limited edition. The suspension on the Viper TA was upgraded and tuned for on-track usage, with Pirelli P Zero Corsa tires. A two-mode Bilstein Damptronic suspension has firmer damping and a smaller spread between modes than the current Viper GTS. Dampers, springs, and stabilizer bars have been retuned, while the aluminum X-brace was replaced with a lighter carbon fiber brace.

“The new 2014 SRT Viper TA is being engineering for the dedicated track enthusiast, who still wants to drive to the track and take their hobby to the next level,” said SRT CEO Ralph Gilles. “Our engineers revised the suspension settings to refocus the Viper specifically for track duty, using a blend of components from the GTS and the SRT models, add in the extensively developed aero package and the new Time Attack package is born.”

While the TA was announced earlier, SRT has now added that the car has new Brembo two-piece, 32-mm-wide high-thermal-capacity rotors and pads. The carbon fiber front splitters and rear spoiler boost downforce up to 7 times more at 150 mph. The curb weight was determined to be 3,390 pounds.

Very few of the cars are planned — 93 in “TA Orange,” 33 in black, and 33 in white. It is due to arrive at dealerships before the end of 2013.  That’s still better than the original announcement of 33 cars, total, all in orange.
