The 2013 SRT Viper is now out, and we are seeing them everywhere on the road… Wait, they haven’t been released yet and I have yet to see one of these beasts! Yet, John Hennessey and his team has just released their first package for the 2013 SRT Viper. I guess they weren’t content with the 8.4 liter V10 engine included with the car.
The engine upgrade is being dubbed the “Venom 1000 Twin Turbo” and is expected to have a power output of 1,120 bhp and 1,092 lb-ft of torque at 4,2000rpm. This will allow the car to go from 0-60mph in just 2.7 seconds, and it will also complete a quarter mile in just 9.7 seconds with a speed of 152mph.
Here is what is included in the kit: fit forged aluminum pistons, ARP 2000 rod bolts, computer balanced rotating assembly, forged steel rods & wrist pins, thermal coated rod bearing, twin precision ball bearing turbochargers, front-mounted air-to-air intercooler, polished stainless steel inlet tubes, stainless steel turbo headers, custom intercooler hoses with T-clamps, stainless steel turbo down pipes, external wastegates, stainless steel three inch exhaust system, engine management system upgrade, and engine management calibration. Also included are upgraded fuel injectors, fuel pump & lines, and fuel pressure regulator. Hennessey will also deck out your Venom 1000 with Hennessey floormats, a Hennessey shift knob, Hennessey & Venom 1000 emblems and badges, and serial numbered dash & engine plaques.
Still not satisfied? Well then I should also mention that you will have the option of including lightweight monoblock wheels, five-point racing harnesses with Hennessey & Venom 1000 logos, a Penske double adjustable coilover suspension upgrade system, a rear differential cooler, a rollbar system, a 2.5 lb fire extinguisher, carbon fiber interior trim accessories, carbon fiber splitter, rear lip, rear racing wing, and carbon fiber canards.
Whew, that was a mouthful.
