e85 Viper Top Speed Reviews and Colours

Monday, January 31, 2011

Not very many production cars can surpass 200 mph, and all of them require premium gasoline and a really long stretch of road. But a diet of E85 ethanol/gasoline and one mile of Oscoda, Michigan, runway recently allowed a 2005 Dodge Viper SRT10 roadster to set a new target for street cars in the standing mile - 220.7 mph-which broke the old record of 217.9 mph, held by a Hennessey Viper. For reference, the new 600-hp Viper could reach an estimated 175 mph in the standing mile.

The E85 Viper is street - legal but far from stock: the V-10's power was more than doubled to 1200 hp by installing two intercooled turbochargers (that pushed up to 15 pounds of boost during the record pass) and updating the fuel - and computer - systems to work with E85, which enhances horsepower but reduces fuel mileage.

Car owner Karl Jacob undertook the project to "prove that you can go fast and be environmentally conscious." The car was driven by Ron Misjak, Jr., of Chicago's Super Viper Systems (SVS), which modified Jacob's Viper. (SVS has also converted several other Vipers to run on E85.)
