This is a well-known Dodge Viper which goes by the name ‘White Snake’. This thing can drive at 190 mph, well can it?
The V10 monster had a reputation for giving highly-tuned rivals a head-start but easily pulling them back in over the length of a course, thanks to over 1200bhp at the wheels and perfect gearing to make the most of it.
Despite being a manual, the cult hero could still top 160mph on the quarter-mile and had previously run a 9.83-second pass, according to that strip’s timing gear.
But, at an unnamed quarter-mile drag venue earlier this month, it finally broke something catastrophic. As it was chasing down another Viper that had been granted a lead away from the line, the engine threw a con-rod through the crankcase.
