The Dodge Viper name returns to the world of motorsport and to the classic red and white racing livery as SRT (Street and Racing Technology) unveiled today the new racing car. Set to make its debut at the upcoming Sahlen’s Six Hours of the Glen race weekend, June 27-29, at New York’s Watkins Glen International circuit, SRT MotorSport Viper entries include the No. 91 and No. 93 Dodge Viper SRT GTS-Rs.

The two vehicles will compete in ‘Viper Red’ and ‘Race White’ in the 2014 IMSA TUDOR United SportsCar Championship season.

For those who don’t know, the vehicles feature the classic colors worn by the Dodge Viper entries that took the overall victory in the Rolex 24 At Daytona in 2000, a GTS class win in the 2000 24 Hours of Le Mans, and American Le Mans Series championships in 1999 and 2000.

Moreover, there is a special 100th anniversary logo on both IMSA TUDOR Vipers.

“We are honoring the racing history of the Dodge Viper by returning to its classic colors as we are in the midst of celebrating the Dodge brand’s 100th anniversary and 100 years of American performance,” said Ralph Gilles, President and CEO of SRT Motorsports and Senior Vice President of Product Design for Chrysler Group LLC. “The new livery not only brings back this classic look but also enables us to continue to connect our Viper racing program to its spirited racing heritage.”
