Somehow SRT made the Viper even more insane

The Viper has never exactly been a vehicle you'd call "slow," and when SRT announced their Anodized Carbon Special Edition, they added some extreme beauty into the mix. Now, they've upped the ante by adding something called the Time Attack Group to the Anodized Carbon Special Edition. Yes, that means that there's now a Viper you can call the SRT TA ACSE, but don't worry about fitting all that on your license plate, because people won't have time to read it.

For starters, it's got the ACSE's signature paint: a matte metallic shade that's somehow both black and silver at the same time.

But then, it adds that whole TAG section — the Time Attack Group. That means its got special orange springs that denote its on-track intention. Those matte black wheels house some massive track-ready brakes that have been adapted from the 2010 Viper ACR-X. That's a race car, so you can be pretty certain these won't let you down.

For the most hardcore people, mere traction alone is never enough, so SRT tossed on some wind tunnel-tuned carbon fiber at both the front and the back, which they say results in 339 pounds of downforce at 150 mph. That means more fun whenever the track starts to turn.

Inside, it's coated in Alcantara that's stitched with contrasting orange thread. Really, coated. Not just the steering wheel and seats, but even the headliner, door bolsters, and knee blockers. A very nice touch, given the bruises you'll likely have on your knees from all that turning prowess.

Sexiest Viper yet?
