1,400-horsepower twin-turbo Viper sets quarter-mile record in six seconds
The Dodge Viper has been out of production for five years now. That hasn’t stopped diehard fans of the American supercar from pushing the platform to new heights on the drag strip.
Nth Moto, the Shakopee, Minnesota-based firm that specializes in making very, very fast Vipers, just posted a video on his YouTube channel claiming to have set a new world record for fifth generation Vipers on the drag track. The store managed to propel its own twin-turbo ACR to an incredible 6.90 second quarter mile at 210 mph, making it the first fifth-generation Viper to enter the six-second range.
While this Viper might look pretty stock, it’s obviously far from it. Along with all the engine mods to squeeze all that power out of the V-10 engine, the manual transmission has been replaced with a three-speed drag-stroke automatic transmission from GM. There are also sticky radial tires at the rear and tailpipes in the front fenders. The interior, including the speaker system, air conditioning and all other comforts, were however left alone. At the time of the record overtaking, the car weighed just over 4,000 pounds with the driver inside. Foolish.
Nth Moto has a habit of building jaw-dropping Vipers during drag events. We’re excited to see how much further he can push his cars.
