A Limited Edition Gem:

Oh, you thought you knew racing cars? Think again, because this Viper GT3 is not just any racing car—it’s a limited edition gem. Yes, the GT3 spec versions were produced in such minuscule numbers that owning one is like having a golden ticket to Willy Wonka’s chocolate factory. This isn’t just a car; it’s a rare beast, and you could be part of the elite few who get to tame it.

The Beast Unleashed

Now, let’s talk about what makes this machine tick. The Viper Competition uses the same frame as its street-legal sibling, but with a twist—it’s been fitted with a veritable jungle gym of steel bars to form a safety cage. Under the bonnet, you’ll find an aluminum V-10 engine that’s been beefed up for racing with a higher-lift camshaft and the removal of those power-sapping catalytic converters. The transmission and the differential are stock, but fear not, coolers have been added to keep things icy and increase durability. And the suspension? It’s been retuned for stickier race tires, turning this car into a track-hugging demon.

Safety? Sorted.

Safety gear is top-notch too, with special seats, belts, window nets, and a fire-suppression system. The new coupe body isn’t just for show; it’s what the sanctioning bodies prefer, and it helps the rear wing generate more downforce, making this car stick to the tarmac like a cat to a warm car bonnet.

Performance That Defies Logic

Now, for the numbers that’ll make your jaw drop. The Viper Competition is fantastically quick, thanks to its monstrous 8.3-liter aluminum V-10 engine that churns out a mind-boggling 540 pound-feet of torque at 4600 rpm. Downshifting? That’s for the weak. This beast rockets to 60 mph in a blistering 3.1 seconds, blasts past 100 mph in 7.0 seconds, and devours the quarter-mile in 11.2 seconds at 130 mph. Dodge reckons it’s good for 193 mph.

Brakes That Could Stop Time

The anti-lock brakes are a marvel, bringing it down from 70 mph in just 134 feet—compare that to a Lamborghini Murciélago, which needs 155 feet. On the skidpad, it pulled an astonishing 1.19 g, outdoing even a Ferrari Enzo at 1.05 g. These figures translate to heart-pounding, white-knuckle speeds on any racetrack.

Conquering the Track

Take Texas Motor Speedway, for instance. It’s a 1.5-mile oval with an infield road course that exits onto the oval at Turn Three. In the Competition, we took the 24-degree-banked Turns Three and Four flat out, pushing near 150 mph at the exit of Turn Four.

And here’s the kicker—those turns are lined with an unyielding concrete wall. The NASCAR lads might be used to scraping paint against the barrier, but for us mere mortals, keeping the throttle pinned took nerves of steel. Thankfully, we had Mike McCann, a Viper-club regular, as our pace car. If he could do it, so could we.

Well, almost. McCann was faster, but he gave us the confidence boost we needed. The Viper Competition’s performance envelope is in another stratosphere compared to the usual suspects we drive. So, if you’re ready to embrace the thrill and become part of a rarefied breed of racing enthusiasts, this Viper GT3 is calling your name.


This Dodge Viper Competition Coupe GT3 will join the Vulkan Racing Team in 2009 and will compete in the BFGoodrich Endurance Championship Nürburgring 2009. In 2010, it was entered in the FIA GT1 World Championship and again competed in the Nürburgring 24 Hours.

In 2017, the Viper came to Bernd Albrecht, brought up to the latest technical standards.

The engine was upgraded to a Gen5 GT3 engine.

This delivers around 900 hp with 1000 nm of torque and a top speed of 330 km/h and also under 3 seconds to 100 and under 7 seconds to 200.

The Last entry was at the 2022 24 hours of Nürburgring.
