The SRT Viper GTS was unveiled at a Chrysler dealer conference on September 14, 2010 in Orlando, Florida as the prototype 2012 Viper. It was also revealed that there would be no 2011 model Dodge Vipers as the Viper range was going to be rebooted in 2012.

The Viper GTS was also placed on display for a single night at the 11th Viper Owners Invitational in Salt Lake City, Utah. SRT CEO Ralph Gilles was present at the event to gather feedback from owners of previous Vipers regarding the styling of the 2012 Viper.

He also announced in the Autumn of 2011 that the 5th generation Viper would be shown at the New York Auto Show in April 2012. Production of the SRT Viper began in late 2012 under the "Street and Racing Technology" brand, which was altered from a performance group to a brand within the Chrysler Group LLC.

Production of the SRT Viper was paused in April 2014 due to poor sales. Following SRT's return to being a tuner brand, the SRT Viper re-entered production in the third-half of 2014 as 2015 Dodge Viper with minor updates. In early 2016, the Dodge Viper was confirmed to cease production in 2017 due to failing to comply to the revised U.S. federal safety standard which will mandate side curtain airbags.

Games

Need for Speed: Most Wanted (2012)

The Viper GTS appears in Need for Speed: Most Wanted (2012) as a muscle class vehicle. It was revealed on June 4, 2012 on the official Need for Speed website after EA's E3 conference ended.

In singleplayer, the Viper GTS can be found in various Jack Spots. In multiplayer, it is unlocked upon reaching SpeedLevel 38.

The Viper GTS is the fastest accelerating muscle class vehicle in the game. Compared to its competitors, like the Ford Mustang Boss 302, the Viper weighs less and thus benefits from notably more responsive steering, which is similar to that of exotic class cars.
