2006 Hennessey Viper Venom 800R

2006 Hennessey Viper Venom 800R
Las Vegas - One of the more straightforward SEMA cars is this Hennessey Viper Venom which uses cubic displacement to maximum advantage. Punched out to nearly ten liters, the new 800R has a 585 CID upgrade which is good for 810 bhp and 810 ft lbs of torque.

Unlike Hennessey?s 1000 bhp Venoms, this one is normally aspirated, but can reach almost the same levels of performance: 0 - 60 mph in 2.9 seconds, top speed over 230 mph and a 1/4 mile time of 10.88 @ 136 mph when tested on Michelin Pilot Sport 2 tires.

These incredible figures are possible due to an extensive engine tuning program that takes Hennessey just over twelve weeks to perform. From the crankshaft up, every aspect of the motor is reworked, resulting in something almost entirely new. Air enters through a cold air induction system, to reported heads, gets compressed by new forged pistons and exits through a big bore custom header and exhaust system. At 5500 rpm, you can bet this swallows about five times the normal amount of fuel.

Also included on the bright yellow show car is Hennessey?s now signature Viper SRT Coupe body kit which includes a ?VenomAero? front bumper and rear ?Daytona? spoiler.

The Official debut of the 800R will take place on the Dupont stand at 10 am on Tuesday, October 31 at the SEMA Auto Show

That Viper belongs to one of my friends buddy! He too has a matching colored boat. But I heard that he sold that Viper for a Lambo!

The Dodge Viper Is Dead
In all the hoopla over the past few weeks about Dodge's new entry to the Muscle Car Wars, the media stories popping up hinting Chrysler may be thinking about discontinuing the Dodge Viper have gone relatively ignored by the majority of the product press. Unfortunately for those with a love of the serpentine-named supercar, we've learned through several of our sources that the decision to kill off the next generation of the Dodge Viper has already been made.

The next generation Viper roadster, referred to internally as ZC-D27 -- and ZC-D29 in the case of the coupe -- are no longer part of Chrysler LLC's future plans. They've been shuttled to the side -- we're assuming as part of "Project Genesis," the new game plan "intended to align the needs and wants of the customer with its [Chrysler's] product portfolio and the dealer network." Or perhaps it was part of "Project Alpha" the game plan prior to "Genesis" and before Cerberus really got a good look at the books. All we know is the decision was made during the period Cerberus has been running the show in Auburn Hills.

Originally, the new version of Dodge's halo car was set to start rolling down the assembly line in January of 2009 alongside two Chrysler badged platform mates. These two new Chrysler branded performance vehicles were to be modeled after the Firepower concept car. The first one, a roadster, was given the internal name ZC-C27, and a coupe version was given the internal name ZC-C29. However we know the decision to kill the Chrysler-brand versions was made sometime in the middle of last year.

What happens after 2011? That's a question we don't yet have an answer for.

It's hard to imagine Chrysler leaving the halo car market for good -- but we're thinking the future will call for a more affordable halo. Not just more affordable for the buyer but more affordable for Chrysler build. We know they'll want something that can still put up a fight with the Corvette -- at least the base model -- but at the same time, be much closer to the Corvette's base MSRP.

In the next one or two years, we can only a hope a concept car pops up on the auto show circuit that can give some hope for an all new, SRT hot rod. For now though, we mourn the loss of a legend.

Just when they reached the moon at 600 hp and have embraced VVT-i in the monsterous V10...

Go mid-engined with that V10, keep it under $90,000, and I think we'll have a new world class car less than the price of the new ZR1 :) .

I always loved the viper but now I guess it will slowly grow into a modern classic car.

Btw I'm just gonna wait for cegonex to start posting "New viper coming in 2023"
