Results from the Car & Driver Supercar Challenge prove that John Hennessey's Vipers are the fastest tuned cars in America. Hennessey took the grand prize last November with a specially prepared, twin-turbo version of Dodge's Viper that won both the 0-150-0 and road course tests against the best that Kleemann, ReNNtech and Lingenfelter had to offer.

Following the success of the C&D's test, Hennessey is offering a version of the car which won the challenge, but now with more horsepower and better performance. Called the Viper Venom 1000, Hennessey takes the base model 500bhp Viper and completely reworks the engine to produce 1000 bhp. With these figures, the Venom 1000 is one of the only road-legal cars that can now challenge the Bugatti Veyron.

Hennessey has been modifying Vipers out of Houston since its release in 1992. Not limited to his dramatic engine upgrades, Hennessey also offers suspension and brake packages. Some of his Vipers also feature radical bodywork that gives these Venoms an image and appeal all their own.

Hennessey claims that on MT 'ET Street' tires, the Venom 1000 can reach zero-to-sixty in 2.25 seconds and the quarter mile: 9.75 sec. This unbelievable acceleration was the main factor that let Venom 1000 win Road & Track's Standing Mile contest at 25.6 seconds, .3 seconds faster than the Saleen S7 Twin Turbo!

To double the stock horsepower rating of the Viper, the Venom has been bored, stroked and pressurized to 15psi. This system includes JE Pistons, Manley Rods and twin Garret Turbos. While Hennessey lists their custom headers & exhaust systems separately, they are a must for the $50 000 engine.

To match the ferocious nature of the Venom 1000 engine, a variety of tasty options are available. These include a fully adjustable suspension ($4250), Light-weight Rotors ($4500), Connolly Leather ($6500) Front Dam with Rear Diffuser & Spoiler ($9500) and a range of wheels. When all is said and done, the fully trimmed Venom 1000 should cost around $180 000 USD, much less than similar cars boasting the same performance figures.

Be on the lookout: For 2006, Hennessey will debut the Venom 1000 Twin Turbo SRT Coupe . Only 24 examples will be built at a price of $225,000 USD, each with a top speed of 255 mph!

Pffft bollocks - no way with the Viper's aerodynamics. And really - who's going to brave enough to find out how stable a Viper is at that speed?

0-60mph in 2.25 seconds for RWD car with 1000hp?? Those must be extremely sticky tyres...
 
Is that a Porsche 904 in the background?

Oh, and, uh, nice Viper also. Jay Leno's chin suits it. :p

(I know, it's a Hennessey trademark. He used a similar bumper for the Venom 800 Viper as well.)

I doubt that figure as well, no way is that possible on street legal tires.

Btw, the thing looks quite decent (except the price tag). :)

do you see how wide those tires are? 700 hp supras run 9s on street tires with less area
 
so? seriously, it doesnt matter to me if a tuned car has 1000hp. There are several of them now and its not special anymore. JUN also makes 1000hp supras and Skylines. and the 0-60 time seems highly unlikely in a car of this hp and torque and weight and the fact that it is RWD and on STREET tires.
 
Wow, nice. Wouldn't have it personally, not really my thing, but that much in a Viper!!?? I hope they fixed the chassis!! "When it does let go, it kills you!" - J Clarkson on the standard Viper.

I think stating that it's a competitor to the Veyron is a bit rich. The thing is for a start, not a production car. It's a modified car. You'd need some mighty cohones to push a car as wayward as the Viper out to 255mph too. Stability in a Viper is going to be a bit iffy at 400kliks. But imagine your hairdo when you're finished!! :shock:

I tought the same thing when I saw the pictures: "What?s with the Jay Leno bumpers?"
 
The front bumper doesn't match the paint on the hood. Unless my eyes are going.

I think this is just overkill. Too much power with RWD and its a convertable! Wouldn't that compromise chassis stability, especially with 1000HP?!
 
^ daaamn, how the hell did you notice the color difference? :shock:
i didnt notice it untill you said it
 
MT et tires.. i finally read it heh

Its the first thing I noticed when I laid eyes on the car. Maybe my graphics work has given me a keen eye.

Don't forget that this pic might have been taking using some lens filter that shows the paint differently, and you couldn't notice bare-eyed (sp)...

This is possible, but why would the body kit be a different shade then the hood. And whats this (sp) malarky?

I don't know what you mean with malarky, but the different shade might come form one being painted on plastic, and the other on metal.

Could be. Oh, and what does the "(sp)" mean?
