SRT has announced the 2014 Viper TA. The TA portion of the name stands for Time Attack and signifies a spec-package for the 2014 Viper that's designed for extreme performance on the road racing course.

The car gets suspension that is upgraded specifically for track work and to maximize the performance of the vehicles Pirelli P Zero Corsa tires. The tires are mounted on light weight SideWinder II wheels.
