1,900 HP Dodge Ram SRT-10 Pulls 7s Quarter Mile World Record Run

When Dodge came up with the Ram SRT-10, the engineers who made strapped a Viper engine to a pickup truck and added warranty to the package weren't exactly sane. Then again, they knew whom they were targeting, as the RAM SRT-10 customers follow the same pattern. Let's take the guys in the video below, for instance.

They decided the standard muscle was far from enough, so the only solution was to climb to an almost quadruple level. That's right, this blue collar machine now packs over 1,900 hp at the crank.

So what does it do with all that power? Well, don't expect to find it at the ranch. Instead, you should go searching for the big-hearted monstrosity at the drag strip.

That's where the machine recently set a new world record for its breed. The bed-gifted vehicle managed to dive into the 7s quarter mile category, stunning everybody around. Think about it, this Ram is only about half a second slower than the world's fastest Nissan GT-R, the Alpha Omega. To be more precise, the Ram pulled a 7.97s run at 183 mph (295 km/h).

The best part of the story? This is a street-legal machine

Yes, this Ram can still be driven on the road. The vehicle has kept the full factory steel body. Nevertheless, the real treat can be found inside the cabin, where the racing approach is obvious. Heck, those racing carbon fiber seats are so slim you could easily mistake them for clothing items.

This is a project that manages to be original at all levels, including the soundtrack. Watch the clip below and try to remember the last time you heard a Ram SRT-10 with such a voice.

Then again, when you're 2s ahead of the second-fastest Viper-powered Ram in the world, you have to scream about it in your own way.
