The 8.0-liter quad-turbocharged W16 engine of the Bugatti Chiron delivers an extraordinary 1,479 hp and 1,180 lb-ft (1,600 Nm) of torque. However, it pales compared to this insane Dodge Viper.
The Viper has been brought to life thanks to Calvo Motorsports and was actually purchased by the owner because his modified Corvette Z06 was beaten by another Calvo-tuned Viper in a street race. The car was initially equipped with Calvo’s CM1600 package but it has now been outfitted with a plethora of bespoke modifications that make it an absolute animal.

In modifying the car, Calvo has increased the V10’s capacity to 9.0-liters, strapped on a pair of huge 8686 turbochargers, and fitted a dry sump, a Motec management system, and heaps of other upgrades. It is rocking a flex-fuel setup and when running on E85, churns out an insane 2,630 hp at 7,150 rpm at the rear wheels and an equally as crazy 1,985 lb-ft (2,691 Nm) of torque at 6,650 pm. Bugatti Chiron, eat your heart out.
This clip from That Racing Channel shows the car being put through its paces on the street and even though it wasn’t using its 2,600 hp tune, the way it accelerates down the road is truly mind-blowing. What’s particularly impressive about the car is that despite being rear-wheel drive, it manages to put the power to the ground very efficiently.
Owning and driving a car with this much power obviously isn’t for everyone, but as far as Dodge Vipers go, this might be the most impressive of them all.
