Impressively, this record has been held for nearly ten years, despite some stiff competition from other insanely powerful custom Vipers. Keen to defend the family’s title, Patel’s 18-year-old son Milan wanted to try and set a new quarter-mile record in his dad’s Viper. The modified Viper has been a part of his entire life since his dad bought it back in 2003, so he has a strong attachment to the car and wanted to make his dad proud.
While the drag racer retains the original 8.0-liter V12 engine block, a pair of 88 mm Garrett turbochargers have been added. A slew of other modifications increases the output to an insane 3,200 horsepower.
