2013 SRT Viper Sets Track Record For a Production Car at High Plains Raceway

High Plains Raceway in Deer Trail, Colorado is a mile above sea level, which typically accounts for a 15 percept loss of horsepower. But a bone stock 2013 SRT Viper seemed to do just fine here, setting a new track record for a production car. This red car was a base SRT with just the Track Pack, which includes two-piece brake rotors, lighter wheels and Pirelli P Zero Corsa tires. SRT engineer Erich Heuschele set a record time of 1:57.69 on the 15-turn, 2.5-mile road course. Take that GT-R and ZR1! Check out the video after the jump! Via SRT

SRT Viper GT3-R

SRT unveiled the Viper GT3-R at Le Mans this week. This competition-only package is eligible to compete in FIA GT3, United SportsCar Racing GT Daytona, Pirelli World Challenge GT, NARRA and SCCA/NASA and can be yours for just $459,000. Which is chump change when you consider the fact that the engine, chassis, suspension, electronics and aerodynamics are practically right out of the GTS-R GTE class car in the 2013 24 Hours of Le Mans and the American Le Mans Series. The GT3-R is powered by the Viper V-10 race engine, which puts out 680-horsepower and 640-lb.-ft. of torque, and gears are shifted with a Xtrac 6-speed paddle shift. SRT is taking orders now for a late 2013 delivery.
