According to a recent report, Dodge is testing a supercharged V10 engine that could find its way into the Viper.
The Dodge Viper hasn't been flying off dealer lots and the recent introduction of the Charger and Challenger SRT Hellcat could complicate things as they feature a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 engine that develops 707 bhp (527 kW) and 650 lb-ft (880Nm) of torque.
Since both models are more powerful than the Viper, engineers are reportedly looking at ways to put the Viper back on top. While nothing is official, Allpar is reporting the company has begun working on a supercharged 8.4-liter V10 engine.
The publication believes the supercharger could enable the engine to produce up to 800 bhp (596 kW). If this is correct, it would be significantly more powerful than the current engine that develops 640 bhp (477 kW).
