2014 SRT Viper GTS

My boyhood shelves were packed with all sorts of toys, but my favorites were miniature diecast cars. Even though I'd spend hours building challenging gravity tracks for the smallest and sleekest of the bunch, my prized vehicles were not scaled-down production models. Instead, I preferred to daydream about the fascinating showcars and fictitious models with their radical styling, giant wheels and oversized engines. They were the standouts that didn't need to roll down a plastic road, as they could shoot across the carpet, launch over a book and drive up the walls with impunity. ... Read More

    1385488860

    It's typically hard to find early examples of the Dodge Viper that haven't been crashed or modified, but one eBay seller has a showroom-fresh version of the V10 roadster up for sale worthy of an eBay Find of the Day. With just 504 miles on the odometer (according to the description and not the images) and "no defects at all," this 1994 Viper is a rare ...

    Report: Gilles blames slow Viper sales on poor dealer ordering, says order books are full
    1385481480

    Since it hit the market with a bang, the SRT Viper has mainly soldiered on making nothing more than a whimper. Demand for the reborn, V10-powered rocket has struggled, although SRT boss Ralph Gilles remains committed to the slinky serpent, according to a report from Wards. "The plant is booked solid. We actually have several hundred units outstanding we ...

    When I was out in the desert with my new, old buddy Ralph Gilles, we started shooting the breeze about matte paint jobs. Photo-ninja Drew Phillips had driven out to shoot the SRT Viper TA event, and had grabbed the keys to our matte gray Hyundai Veloster Turbo for the journey. Pointing to the Veloster, Gilles asked what we thought about matte paint in ...

    The 2014 SRT Viper is already a rare and special vehicle, but Ralph Gilles & Co. are looking to create even more excitement for the car with limited-edition models. Only 165 souls will be lucky enough to park a Viper TA in their driveway, but less than a third of that number will have the honor of laying their $100,000+ down on this new new Viper GTS ...

    Video: SRT Viper TA stops by Adam Carolla's podcast with Ralph Gilles
    1384820940

    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 ...

    SRT CEO Ralph Gilles could have been detailing his brand's top-secret plans for the next five years, or taking potshots at the Corvette for all I knew. I was only about 10 feet away from Gilles as he was telling a small group of assembled media something or other about the history of the Viper – just now enriched with this "Time Attack" TA model ...

    Official: SRT Viper color contest winner is Competition Blue
    1384520400

    The results are in and the newest color for the SRT Viper is called... Competition Blue. It's a bit underwhelming, if we're honest. The SRT team was responsible for parsing the 11,000 submissions for the SRT Viper Color Contest down to just three entries, and from there, it was up to the public to vote on their favorite. It was Patryk Skarzynski of ...

SRT has narrowed down a list of over 11,000 names for the color submitted by Viper fans to three finalists: Competition Blue, Overtaking Blue and Viral Blue.

    Ever look through a brochure or online configurator and wonder how automakers come up with the names for the paint colors? They research, deliberate and focus-group the heck out of them until they've arrived at a catchy name like... Rape Yellow. Well, SRT opted to go a different route when adding a new color to the Viper catalog. They revealed a new ...

    Launch control is one of the coolest recent technologies in the automotive realm. Push a button, follow a procedure, and you'll be rewarded with the best acceleration that a computer can be programmed to achieve. It's simple, and it works. That said, a computer can sometimes be beaten by a skilled driver. In the video below, Car and Driver outlines the ...

    Like every decision involved in a new car, picking the names of the color palette is a delicate process. The name of a paint option means more to buyers than you might think, which is why automakers go to great lengths to pick the right color name and why we sometimes wind up with silly names like Bulldozer (yellow-orange) on the Jeep Wrangler, Red Alert! ...

    Nobody has ever accused the all-new 2013 SRT Viper of being slow, but even with the rebounding economy the high-performance coupe seems to be suffering from slow sales out of the gate. According to Automotive News, the Viper has sold 426 units since it went on sale in February with an additional 565 unsold units sitting around in dealer inventory, which ...

    Apparently the folks at SRT thought Viper owners would benefit from a "Rain Mode" stability and traction control setting, and they're probably right. For model year 2014, the setting has been added to the base Viper's On and Off modes, and the Viper GTS's and TA Special Edition's On, Sport, Track and Off modes, according to Chrysler's blog.

    Even though our first response was something along the lines of "It should have been the Cheetah," we will admit that building a real-life version of a Grand Theft Auto V car is a pretty meta, pretty cool promotion. Details on the Banshee's mechanicals are pretty scarce, but the car has obviously been crafted using a Viper as its base (a fourth- or ...

    Alright, there's no way the 455-horsepower Chevrolet Corvette Stingray beat the 640-hp SRT Viper, you say. Well, you're partially right. Edmunds ran them down a quarter-mile drag strip and the Viper did it in 11.72 seconds at 124.09 miles per hour to the Stingray's 12.39 seconds at 113.73 mph. The Viper did 0-60 miles per hour in 3.5 seconds compared to ...

    The last time a factory-backed Viper won a race in the American Le Mans Series was 2000, a season that the then-dominant Viper would've swept entirely had it not lost two of those ten races to the Corvette team. It was fitting, then, that 13 years later, Marc Goossens drove his No. 91 SRT Viper GTS-R across the finish line at Road America on Saturday ...
