2012 New York: SRT Viper GTS-R shows off motorsports version for ALMS

So far, the Chrysler Group has clearly been the showstopper with the recent world debut of the all-new 2013 SRT Viper. But of course, Chrysler wants to make sure that we don’t forget the Viper’s connection to motorsports. By doing so, the SRT brand also unveiled the SRT Viper GTS-R, a racecar that has a long standing history of participating in the American LeMans Series.

“Racing has been a significant part of the illustrious history of Viper not only with wins on the track, but also in the continued development of the street cars – and our new 2013 SRT Viper models are proof of those lessons learned,” said Ralph Gilles, SRT’s CEO and President. “Now with our new team and the launch of the GTS-R, we’re excited and proud to begin writing more chapters in the racing history of the Viper later this summer.”

The new Viper GTS-R was made in collaboration with Riley Technologies, which is based out of North Carolina. Though official performance details have yet to be released. Either way, the new Viper GTS-R is sure to make a statement in the up and coming American LeMans Series.
