This is What a 2,000 HP Dodge Viper Looks Like
The hallowed Dodge Viper has never been a car short on horsepower, or speed for that matter. Ever since it arrived in 1991, the notoriously razor-edged Viper has helped push the sports car limits into supercar territory. But sometimes “enough” power just isn’t…well, “enough.” And that’s where this jaw-dropping machine comes into play. Whereas the standard 2006 Dodge Viper boasts 510 ponies, this ’06 Viper wallops in excess of 2,000 horsepower. As seen in many YouTube drag strip videos, it can blast cleanly past the 200 mph barrier, and pretty much any other car that stands in its way. And best of all… it’s for sale.

The source for this Viper’s incredible turn of speed? That comes from a race-prepped version of the Viper’s mammoth 8.3-liter V10, now sporting upgraded cylinder heads, dry sump lubrication, a new ECU, fuel injectors, dual fuel pumps, and last but not least, a pair of Garrett GTX turbochargers. In 2013 and 2014, the tuned Dodge Viper generated in the region of 1,300 horsepower at its rear wheels, eventually rising to 1,700 hp, at which point it set a 213.86 mph record in the 2014 WannaGoFast half-mile event. Now however, it’s said to have evolved significantly.
The owner mentions wheel horsepower in the 2,000 hp range, which puts this twin-turbo beast in quite the exclusive club. A custom air-to-water intercooler and four-inch dual side exhaust keep those whirring turbochargers happy.

The power goes to the ground via a slick-shifting sequential transmission and carbon clutch, which motivates an upgraded nine-inch rear end and heavy duty CV half shafts. Need the next gear? Just slam back that gear stick and it arrives in an instant. The entire car sits on adjustable coilover shocks with chromoly steel control arms and sticky drag racing street tires.
The whole build was undertaken by Minnesota’s Nth Moto performance shop, which gave the now 10-year old Viper quite the new lease on life. Though while its performance is truly jaw-dropping, admittedly so is its price. The ’06 twin-turbocharged Dodge Viper hit the eBay auction block and asks a towering $260,000.
