SRT (short for Street & Racing Technology) is a high-performance automobile group within Fiat Chrysler Automobiles. SRT began as "Team Viper" to develop the Dodge Viper. It later merged with "Team Prowler", the developers of the Plymouth Prowler, to become Specialty Vehicle Engineering (SVE). This was renamed Performance Vehicle Operations (PVO). Since all PVO vehicles used the SRT name, it was decided in 2004 to use that name for the development group as well. SRT heavily tunes and produces vehicles for the Chrysler, Dodge, and Jeep brands.
The naming convention used by SRT for its models are indicative of the vehicle's engine type. The number that follows the "SRT" prefix denotes the number of engine cylinders the vehicle has. For example: the Chrysler 300C has a 6.1 L Hemi V-8; Therefore, the SRT version is known as the Chrysler 300C SRT-8. Similarly, the Dodge Viper SRT-10 along with the Dodge Ram SRT-10 had an 8.3 L V-10, whereas the Dodge SRT4 had a 2.4 L inline-4.
In 2012 Chrysler implemented a plan to turn SRT into a separate brand under the Chrysler Group umbrella. During the 2013 and 2014 model years, the Dodge Viper was sold under the model name SRT Viper. In May 2014, the SRT brand was re-consolidated under Dodge, with former SRT CEO Ralph Gilles continuing as senior vice president of product design and also as the CEO and president of Motorsports. As a result, all Viper models and other Dodge cars carrying SRT on their name (including the SRT Charger SRT8 '11, which was new to GT6) were listed under SRT in Gran Turismo 6, while the 2013 Viper and the Tomahawk Vision Gran Turismo was sold under Dodge dealership in Gran Turismo Sport due to the reconsolidation.
