1,300-HP Twin-Turbo Viper Is An Epic Tire-Slayer

Video / Comments

Over 1,300 horsepower seems like a lot of fun.

If you're anything like us, you're pretty unhappy about the fact that the Dodge Viper is no longer in production and long for a successor to be brought into the world. For those who are lucky enough to afford a Viper, you could still get a new one, but if its standard output isn't enough for you, the guys at Nth Moto know a thing or two about extracting some ridiculous power from these V10s. The one you see below is one of the tuner's milder builds, but that's a relative term when you're talking about an American supercar with over 1,300 horsepower and 1,450 lb-ft of torque on tap.

The video isn't all that long, but it is highly enjoyable. Dyno runs are always cool, and we get to hear this Viper, owned by Wallace Hattenhauer, rev out on the hub dyno. But what happens next is even more fun to watch: gratuitous burnouts! The power of this build is so intense that the Viper pulls off burnouts in fourth and even fifth gear. Details on what has gone into this project are scant, but we do know that the turbos are from Precision Turbo & Engine and that these chargers form part of Nth Moto's Gen 3 kit for the car.

An AEM Electronics Infinity management system helps with tuning while an air-shifted six-speed sequential transmission from Holinger makes shifts on the quarter-mile easier to perform with precision. Of course, power like this doesn't come without some advanced fueling, so the Viper is running on One Ethanol S E85 to achieve its figures. We're not sure how quick this car will be on the track, but a post from the owner's Instagram account over four years ago (when the car was presumably less powerful) reveals that the car has managed to max out at 215 mph on the standing mile. We're sure that its new gearbox will allow it to go even faster, and we hope to see it put down some passes soon.
