Let's do this flowchart style. Will you only be driving on a track? If no, skip the ACR. Next, take a look at the Viper's prices and then answer this question: Do you think fancier leather and a few extra speakers are worth $13,000? If no, skip the GTS. As such, you're left with the GTC. Its various performance enhancements are worth the money over the base model.
The2017 Dodge Viper comes in four trim levels: the base SRT, GTC, GTS and track-ready ACR.
The SRT ($87,900) is available on a limited basis and comes standard with staggered wheels (18-inch front, 19-in rear), keyless passive entry and push-button start, power-adjustable pedals, a manually adjustable driver's seat, a tilt-only steering wheel, a rearview camera, Bluetooth, the 8.4-in Uconnect interface, a navigation system and a 12-speaker Harman/Kardon sound system that includes a USB port and satellite radio.
Next up is the GTC ($95,900), which gains a 2-mode sport suspension, 5-mode stability control, upgraded brakes, a 6-way power driver's seat and upgraded leather with Alcantara inserts.
The GTS ($108,000) goes further on the luxury front with an 18-speaker sound system and full leather on the seats and most interior surfaces.
Topping the range is the sporty ACR ($118,800), which is a serious track car that adds enhancements to just about everything performance-related -- including the brakes, the suspension and the steering. The ACR is also lower than a standard model, featuring an aerodynamic body kit and a huge rear wing.
There are many performance enhancements that can be made, including the Extreme Aero package for the GTC and ACR, along with a variety of special editions.
