    SRT Motorsports has partnered with Riley Technologies, based in Mooresville, N.C., on the design-and-build process of the new SRT Viper GTS-R. Two identical SRT Viper GTS-Rs will compete in the production-based GT class in the series. Four drivers currently are signed to drive including Dominik Farnbacher, from Ansbach, Germany; Marc Goossens from Geel, Belgium; Ryan Hunter-Reay from Dallas and Kuno Wittmer from Montreal. Additional driver and team announcements will be forthcoming.

    I love vipers but im not in love with the new car yet. I am sure it will grow on me but for now I cant stand those fkn led running lights that trace the bottom of the headlight housing.

    i like everything else but those stupid running light, probably because I see the same douchebag in a blue bmw driving down my street every single day with an absolutely horrid retrofit of said lights.

    It's got a manual gearbox and clutch pedal. I love it. Just now reading about the new street Viper in the 4/16/12 issue of AutoWeek.

    The car looks good. Running these heavy monsters is nuts though. The cost of the consumables is in the holly crap all creatures big and small range.
