Hennessey added two turbochargers to almost double the power output of the Viper V10 from 370 kW to 740 kW.

Meet one of the most potent sports cars yet! It's the Hennessey Viper Venom 1000 Twin Turbo, which is an even more powerful version of the Dodge Viper.

American tuning company Hennessey Performance Engineering gave the Dodge Viper a serious muscle boost.

As with the normal production model the car is available as a coupe and a drop-top.

Nearly every part of the car is either reinforced or replaced with higher-strength parts.

Hennessey added two turbochargers to almost double the power output of the Viper V10 from 370 kW to 740 kW. Torque is a whopping 1 500 Nm.

Hennessey claims this makes the Viper Venom 1000 one of the fastest and most powerful street-legal cars yet.

The company also used extra aero parts to increase downforce and improve handling. It has a 0 to 100 km/h sprint time of 2.9 seconds and an estimated top speed of 400 km/h.

Here is the sad news: Only 24 models will be produced!
