Texan tuner converts a Dodge Viper into a 3,300+ HP rocket
Calvo Motorsports, from Texas, has caused a sensation in the media recently when it published the dyno test results of its fifth-gen Dodge Viper: the modded drag car slammed the wheels with 3,317 U.S. horsepower.
For us Europeans, it would mean 3,364 PS, or 2,475 kilowatts. The torque peaked out at 2,307 pound-feet, or 3,128 Newton-meters. We have seen some crazy Viper builds before, but none nearly as extreme as this one.
The tuner neglected to delve into the specifics of the build, but let it slip that the car remained street-legal in the state. A few days ago, another Viper modified by the same shop participated in a drag race with the power dialed in to 1,800 hp – watch the video to see how it went. And then imagine how fast a car twice as powerful could be. Here’s waiting for more news from Calvo Motorsports!
