Viper-Powered Dodge Charger Leaves Jay Leno Impressed 11

One of the most popular show cars in this year’s SEMA was arguably this heavily modified 1968 Dodge Charger.

It took Johan Eriksson and his team a full five years to complete their masterpiece and just by looking at it, you know that there isn’t a single nut and bolt left in its original state.

Under the hood now lies a Viper-sourced V10 engine that also happens to have gained a pair of turbos for a total output of 1,000hp. Paired to it is a proper manual six-speed gearbox, which should make driving this monster down the road a rather interesting experience.

The whole car is based on the platform of a Corvette C6, which makes sense if you think what 1,000hp would do to the original chassis. The roof was also chopped by 40mm to make it prettier while the ridiculously large wheels are custom-made, measuring 24×15.5(!) inches at the rear and 22×11 inches at the front.

What makes this custom Charger however stand out is the attention to the detail inside and out. Jay Leno shows us around this Swedish-built monster Charger, so let’s keep our jaws secured in place.

Dodge Viper Crashes Following A Cars and Coffee Event In Texas 6

Cars and Coffee might as well be renamed Crashes and Coffee at this point as yet another accident has occurred following an event.

The latest incident happened in Houston, Texas and surprisingly didn’t involve a Ford Mustang. Instead, the victim was a Dodge Viper whose driver lost control under what appears to be moderate acceleration.

The end result isn’t pretty as the poor muscle car slams into the curb and rotates a full 180°. This caused some serious damage to the car as front suspension apparently collapsed and there are paint scuffs on the front bumper and side skirt.

The car was quickly towed away from the scene and police arrived shortly thereafter and probably had a less than jovial discussion with the owner.

Needless to say, the urge to show off isn’t worth it and has resulted in countless accidents which can sometimes injure bystanders. These accidents have also put pressure on event organizers and locations where the events take place.

It’s also worth mentioning that the Dodge Viper went out of production over the summer as the model couldn’t comply with federal safety regulations that require vehicles to be equipped with side curtain airbags.

McLaren 720S Vs 800 HP Dodge Viper ACR: Who’s The Boss? 22

One would think that a Dodge Viper ACR would be enough to tackle the new McLaren 720S – especially a tuned example like this one.

This particular ACR has new heads, cam, and a custom exhaust, which allow the 8.4-liter naturally aspirated V10 to make approximately 800 horsepower at the crank, or some 155 HP more than the stock one, which is good for 645 HP and 600lb-ft (813Nm) of torque.

Despite having a smaller 4.0-liter V8 engine (albeit with two turbos strapped to it) delivering 710hp and 568lb-ft of torque to the wheels, the McLaren 720S incredibly fast. Compared to its US-bred contender, the British supercar has some advantages, such as a dual-clutch gearbox instead of a manual stick shift, clever aerodynamics and less weight.

Now, we already know that the 720S is capable of beating some very serious machines on the drag strip, and the Viper ACR has recently ended up on its list, but how fast is it compared to this 800 HP example? DragTimes have put together a video that shows the two exotics going head-to-head in a few roll races, so click on the “play” button and find out who comes out on top.

Exotic sports cars aren’t really meant to be used on a daily basis, unless you really want to. The same applies for the original Dodge Viper GTS, which has rightfully earned the reputation of an unforgiving, unfiltered sports car thanks to its huge V10 engine, wild on-road manners and complete lack of electronic nannies.
