Street Racing Technology (commonly called SRT) is a high-performance Automobile group within Chrysler LLC. 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 has produced vehicles for the Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, and Plymouth Marque.

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 an 8 cylinder HEMI engine. Therefore the SRT version is known as the Chrysler 300C SRT-8. Similarly, the Dodge Viper SRT-10 has a 10 cylinder engine. A minor exception was the Dodge SRT-4, which is based on the Dodge Neon and where the Neon name was deleted while the number "4" just as the other models displayed the number of the cylinders.
