An insane, street-legal Dodge Viper has broken the world record for the fasted recorded speed by a Viper. The world record took place at the Johnny Bohmer Proving Grounds in Merritt Island, Florida. The runway used is 3-miles long and 100 yards wide with 50ft traffic lanes on either side.
Because of this runway’s length, this 2006 Viper was able to push itself to the extreme. During a 2.7-mile test, the Viper recorded a top speed of 252.588 mph. Yes, you read that correctly. Of course, this is not a stock viper and has a lot of work done under its hook, including a twin-turbo setup. Its total output is rated at 1,400 whp and 1,177 lb-ft of torque.
