With the new 600-horsepower 2008 Dodge Vipers starting to hit the streets, it was only a matter of time before someone put one on a dyno to see what kind of juice the snakes are sending to the rear wheels. That someone, in this case, is longtime Viper tuner Hennessey, and their new car made 546 horses and 516 lb-ft of torque in stock trim. According to DragTimes, if you factor in a 13% drivetrain loss, the new Viper is actually making around 615 horses. Not shabby, to say the least. Hennessey dynoed the car a second time after making some exhaust mods and was able to raise those numbers to 574.95 rwhp and 537 lb-ft. Head over to DragTimes to see the graph. We'll take one in green, please.
Thanks for the tip, Fiske!

The 2008 Dodge Viper’s are hitting the streets as we write and the first set of dyno results are in for the 600HP monster. Hennessey put their new Viper on the dyno and it made 546.25 HP and 516.57 pounds of torque at the rear wheels. Using a conservative driveline loss of 13% that puts the new Viper around 615+ HP. After a few exhaust mods and tweaks they were able to bump the power to 574.95 HP and 537.06 pounds of torque. We’re looking forward to seeing some more dyno results and some real world 1/4 mile runs from these new Vipers!
