Now that we’ve introduced you to this slightly modified 2014 SRT Viper, which retains its stock powertrain, we thought it would be the right time to show you that these Detroit-built snakes can be turned into menacing track monsters with the appropriate tools.
Built by RSI Racing Solutions, a small company from Bridgeport, Texas, known for slamming twin-turbos into these SRT- and Dodge-badged supercars, the Viper you’re about to see below packs no less than 1,300 horsepower (that’s double the amount of a regular Viper!) and burns rear tires like there’s no tomorrow.

And since power, speed and lightning-fast quarter mile runs go hand in hand, this sinister-looking convertible will provide a great spectacle at the drag strip. So the 2008 Viper ACR completes the 1320 in 11.3 seconds? That’s quite slow compared to what this twin-turbocharged monster can do. How about 9.7 seconds at 163.85 miles per hour (263.69 km/h)?

This Viper kinda reminds us of the 1,323-hp machine built by the folks over at Nth Moto out of a 2006 SRT10 coupe, but that one is far from being as menacing as the one you're about to see. Anyway, guess you’ve had enough yapping and you’re anxious to find out what this vehicle is capable of. Enjoy the two quarter mile runs shown below.
