Nth Moto Viper Posts New Quarter-Mile World Record

November 23rd, 2016

nth-moto-viper-posts-new-quarter-mile-world-recordTaking exotic, performance, and racing cars to the ninth-degree (and beyond) is the mantra of Nth Moto in Minneapolis, Minnesota. This Gen V Dodge Viper is the evidence of their passion. On November 18, 2016, this Snake became the first of its species to dip into the eights in the quarter-mile; posting a single pass of 8.4-seconds @ 171 mph. Of course, that also makes this particular Viper the quickest of its kind in the 1320.

In factory trim the Dodge Viper packs quite a wallop with an odd-firing, naturally aspirated, 8.4-liter, V10 engine capable of producing 640hp and 600 lb.-ft. of torque. It is a rear-wheel drive coupe, with a 6-speed manual transmission, that frankly resembles no other car.

Nth Moto takes the bad snake and turns it into a dragon with a specialized twin turbocharger system, a MoTec M1 ECU package, and an ATI automatic transmission conversion. The car is running E85 fuel at full factory weight with all the factory amenities. It also has 18-inch wheels wrapped in DOT drag radials. The upgrades peg this Mopar out at 1,500hp and make it a certified street beast.
