Adam Carolla takes a look at the Viper TA with SRT president and CEO Ralph Gilles.

As comedian and car guy Adam Carolla walks around to the back of the SRT Viper right before it's started up, Ralph Gilles, President and CEO of SRT, says, "It's got side exhausts there big guy."

Getting the Viper TA lowdown Carolla-style is one reason you should watch his latest CarCast video (head here for our First Drive review), but Gilles also gives some good insight into some of the Viper's less-obvious features - and we get to see the car with the hood up. It's hard to imagine how large the 8.4-liter V10 is until you see it stuffed back behind the front axle with the carbon-fiber X-brace bolted over it.
