This is monstrous.
Ever heard of Calvo Motorsports? If you're into stupidly fast Dodge Vipers, then you probably have, but if not, all you really need to know is that Calvo makes the most badass Vipers on the planet. While others have also worked on adding a pair of turbos to a Dodge Viper (with tire-slaying results), Calvo is a specialist when it comes to the Gen V iteration of the now-dead American supercar. The company's tuning solutions have spawned insane creations, including a General Lee-inspired Viper with 2,300 horsepower. But that's not even close to a couple of the latest builds, each of which comfortably outperforms all previous builds.
The video above highlights the slightly tamer of the two Vipers we're talking about. This one has a pair of 8686 turbos, a dry-sump lubrication system, MoTeC management, a flex-fuel system, and when E85 fuel is thrown in, produces a staggering 2,630 horsepower and 1,985 lb-ft of torque. As the video shows, that power is surprisingly well managed, a testament to the quality of the tune. But even 2,600-odd hp pales in comparison to the latest build, which Calvo Motorsports claims is the most powerful Gen V Dodge Viper... in the world. Check out the Instagram post below to listen to the 9.0-liter stroked V10 blast its way to the top of the rankings.
The owner of this Viper is Fabricio Cordoba, who used Ninjaneering to tune the MoTeC system. The results are awe-inspiring: 3,076 hp and 2,422 lb-ft of torque, at the wheels! This means that if drivetrain losses are estimated back in, the engine is probably producing somewhere around 3,500 hp at the crank. That power will be seen at the TX2K event in Texas this week, where it will aim to take on the likes of Underground Racing with that tuner's twin-turbo Audi R8s and Lamborghini Huracans. But it does beg the question: When is too much power too much? If Calvo has its way, never.
