Likely based off the previous 8.4-liter unit, the engine is slated to become the largest mill ever used in a Chrysler product.

If the 2013 Dodge Viper has a motto, it's "downsizing be damned" as a new report is indicating the car will have an 8.7-liter V10.

Likely based off the previous 8.4-liter unit, the new engine is slated to become the largest mill ever used in a Chrysler product. There's no word on performance specifications, but the engine will likely produce more than 600 hp (450 kW / 608 PS) and 560 lb-ft (760 Nm) of torque.

Regardless of the final numbers, the car is expected to go into production in the fall of 2012.
