Due to class rules and regulations the car will weigh no less than 1245kg, churn out between 450 and 500 bhp and is limited to 180 mph. The Viper looks to have some serious competition in its group this year with the likes of the Aston Martin Vantage, Corvette C6.R, Porsche 911 GT3 RSR, Ferrari F458 Italia and last year’s winner, the BMW M3 GT all scrapping for the title.
