2007 Dodge Viper GTS-R news, pictures, and information
Only 57 Viper GTS-R models were built and most were sold directly to customers to compete in whatever racing series would allow them. The rest were tagged for factory-backed race teams. Production of all GTS-R models ended in 2005, though many continued to race for years to come.
This vehicle was used at the Laguna Seca reveal and later raced at the Daytona 500 and 12 Hours of Sebring. It qualified for the 1998 24 Hours of LeMans, though it did not run the race.
The V-10 engine displaces 8-liters and produces 700 horsepower. It has a six-speed manual Borg-Warner racing version T-56 transmission with disc brakes in the front and rear.
