Dodge Viper 8.3 SRT-10 Twin Turbo

Dodge Viper SRT-10 with 800+ HP – American cars at their best!

In this blog post, you can read about our ride in an amazing supercar, the +800 horsepower Dodge Viper SRT-10.

It’s 2009 and it’s time again for the fantastic event “Sportscarevent”. It’s an annual event where you can buy a ride in a sleek and fast sports car and support a good cause at the same time.

We are on our way to Sjællandsringen, just outside Roskilde. It is warm, sunny with clear skies and we have rolled down our windows. As we approach Sjællandsringen, we can start to hear the lovely engine sound from all the fantastic supercars that are warming up. It is a sound that is hard to describe. But I can reveal that it is delicious! We park the car and go to buy access. While we’re waiting in line, we can check out some of the cool supercars. The sound has also become louder, as we are now almost completely inside.

It’s not every day you see a bunch of supercars in the same place – and certainly not in Denmark!
We have now reached the point on the site where we can look at the supercars. The supercars are positioned higher up than the track itself, which gives you a good view and allows you to see which supercars are the fastest on the day.

A lot of supercars have been assembled. These include a Corvette, Ferrari, Bentley, Dodge Viper, Porsche, Mercedes McLaren, Lamborghini, Ford Mustang and some other cars. There’s everything you could possibly want and it’s enough to make any car enthusiast’s mouth water.

We stand and watch the cars. We haven’t quite decided which car we’re going to drive. Of course, we’d like to drive them all today, but that’s probably not going to happen today.

It’s hard to choose. There are so many great and rare cars. However, there is one car that stands out a bit. It’s a Dodge Viper. But it’s not just an ordinary Dodge Viper. Here we are talking about a Dodge Viper SRT-10, which has a displacement of a huge 8.3L. But this is not enough. It also has Twin Turbo (double turbo), as 1 turbo is obviously not enough in this amazing vehicle. It has more than 800 horsepower and is extremely fast! It is red with two white speed stripes across it. All in all, a nice and raw American design.

I don’t know if anyone else has also seen the American TV series “Viper”? When I was little, I thought it was really good and watched it several times.
So now that we have the opportunity to try a real Dodge Viper, well, it wasn’t really that hard to choose.
+ the driver bears a striking resemblance to American actor Van Diesel. So all in all, it doesn’t get more American than this.

We are waiting for our turn. We are three people who are going to try a trip as co-driver, Bent, Jesper & Asbjørn respectively.

All the supercars had a helper who could help with harnesses when the driver needed to reverse, water, etc. This was so that everything would run as smoothly as possible, so that it was a good experience for all parties and so that Sportscarevent could raise as much money as possible for charity.

Here we go! The door opens, a person gets out and the helper indicates that it is our turn. Bent decides to try first. He will be the guinea pig, ha ha ha.

It’s full steam ahead on the long side. The top speed is around 170km/h – 220km/h on the long side, depending on the individual car. We estimate that the Dodge Viper was one of the fastest in the field.

Fortunately, Bent thought it was super fun. The rest of us probably wouldn’t have resigned anyway…

But now it’s my turn. I’m a tall guy at about 1.94 and to my surprise, there was plenty of room for my legs. I could have them fully extended without any problems. Comfort is also top-notch, with plush leather bucket seats.
I get strapped in, the door closes and we start backing up. I can feel the butterflies in my stomach. The feeling of sitting in this delicious Dodge Viper and being among all these supercars is a very special feeling.
We drive to the starting point, which is a small hill downhill, where the ride really starts when the accelerator is pressed. We’re behind a Ferrari, which has to go first, so there’s a clear lane for us.

As the exit on the track is where the straight ends, there is a man watching when it is ok to drive.

The man says go! and the Ferrari drives off.

Shortly afterwards we also get a go´ and we drive off. I am pressed firmly back in my seat. It accelerates fast – really fast! But it’s fun – really fun! The first corner is taken right on the car’s limit, so you can feel the car sliding/drifting a bit with the rear end.
It’s a great feeling to feel this Dodge Viper accelerating, handling turns, the high speed on the straights and the sound.
After 2 laps we drive in and park. I have a feeling of ecstasy in my body. It was indescribably fun. I get out of the super nice Dodge Viper with a big smile on my face.

Now it’s Asbjørn’s turn, who has also been really looking forward to it.

In connection with boarding and disembarking, we were told to be a little careful. The reason is that on this Dodge Viper, the exhaust is right under the door – and it’s HOT! It looks cool, but you have to live with the fact that you have to remember to be a little careful – especially if you’re wearing shorts…!

Asbjørn is strapped in and the car starts to reverse. He already has a big smile on his face. I think he knows that he is in for a great experience.

There’s a clear path for him, so it’s straight down the hill and onto the track. The driver doesn’t hold back and there’s no holding back. I can only imagine that Asbjørn will have a fantastic trip too! – At least he gets out of the car with a huge smile on his face…

We’ve made a short video with the Dodge Viper SRT-10 supercar, which you can watch here:
