Even though the SRT Viper has only just recently started reaching customers, Dodge has already gone ahead and revealed a focused, track-ready version dubbed the SRT Viper TA. Standing for “Time Attack,” the TA in the name underscores this model’s performance credentials. Coming in direct response to a comparison test undertaken by Motor Trend in which the outgoing Chevy Corvette ZR1 beat the new SRT Viper GTS, the TA boasts a lower curb weight than the regular Viper and track-focused suspension, brakes and steering. While the engine remains unchanged, the figures tell a different story with the TA reaching 0-60 mph in just 3.3 seconds. Just 33 of these brawny Vipers will be produced in 2013, all of them in the Orange Crush paint job pictured; from next year onwards, the TA will also be offered in black and white. With numbers as limited as they are, don’t expect to see too many of these on your daily commute.
