RSS New York: 2014 SRT Viper TA attacks Manhattan [w/video]

As if the 2013 SRT Viper GTS hasn't stirred up enough excitement, SRT has created a more specialized version of the car designed to attack any track. On display at the New York Auto Show, the 2014 Viper TA has been enhanced for even better track duty, but production will be limited to just 33 units when it goes on sale later this year.

Obvious changes to SRT's flagship performance car include upgraded Brembo brakes, a carbon fiber x-brace under the hood and carbon fiber front and rear spoilers - the latter aero changes providing about 300 pounds of additional downforce at speed. Oh, and if you didn't notice, the car will only be offered in this eye-blazing Crusher Orange paint job with black, lightweight wheels wrapped in Pirelli P Zero Corsa tires. The black-only interior gets similar contrasting orange stitching all over to bring some color indoors.

Less obvious changes include a revised two-mode Bilstein suspension that is firmer than the standard Viper GTS to begin with, and has a "smaller spread between the modes," suggesting that even though the car is road-legal, it's likely to be a pretty extreme ride. Asis the case with "lesser" Vipers, the TA relies on the 8.4-liter V10 to churn out 640 horsepower and 600 pound-feet of torque. Scroll down to watch a new video of the TA and to read the official press release.

Would love to own a viper

My boy loves the Viper even more than the Corvette. I think because there is one running around the neighborhood and he's seen it from time to time since he was little. I am glad to see Chrysler's halo car back. I think Ford made a huge mistake getting rid of the GT40.

The two-mode Bilstein suspension is called DampTronic Select. I've read that the shocks have modes which are manually selectable between "Race" and "Normal". If the car exceeds to 90 mph, the shocks will automatically switch to Race mode. It also features a remote reservoir.
