2014 SRT Viper TA

SRT Viper TA - 8

Chrysler spokesman Dan Reid confirmed the estimated price to Edmunds, saying exact pricing would be announced "by the end of the month".

Powered by the new Viper’s 477kW/813Nm 8.4-litre V10 engine, the street-legal Viper TA (Time Attack) is designed as an extreme track-focused variant intended to appeal to performance enthusiasts.

Despite its aggressive intentions, SRT has decided to update the entire Viper range for 2014 (including the TA) with a new ‘rain mode’ to make the rear-wheel-drive muscle car easier to handle on cold or wet roads.

Part of an expanded multistage electronic stability control system, rain mode will be added to the on/off settings of the SRT Viper and the on/off/sport/track settings of both the TA and GTS.

Also new on the 2014 version of the fifth-generation Viper are three new colours: a matte black finish dubbed Anodized Carbon, Billet Silver and Viper GTS-R Blue. Viper TA models are available in Venom Black, Bright White, and of course, TA Orange.

The starting price of the 2014 SRT Viper has been increased US$2000 to US$99,395 ($106,400) with the GTS remaining at US$121,895 ($130,500).
