First-time dynamometer runs for any production car are interesting business, at least for those with "car nerd" in their resumes. And the virgin public dyno testing of a new supercar like the SRT Viper GTS, well, that's just a bit o' heaven right there. So, when we heard that the number crunchers at Edmunds had gotten the new Viper into the test facility, we were hooked right away.

We won't spoil the video for you by blowing the ending right here, but suffice it to say that the SRT 8.4-litre V10, rated at 640 horsepower and 600 pound-feet of torque at the crank, is still pretty super by the time the power makes its way to those wide rear tires.

What is faster: Hot or Cold? The answer is hot. Why? You can always catch a cold.

Yeah barely enough power to merge on the highway. Every car needs at least 850hp

those numbers are kinda disappointing compared to the ZR1 tho.

and that's basically what this car is about.

afaik advertised figures are horsepower at the crank. 558wrhp would mean that the drivetrain loss would be under 13%. I I'm no expert* but that figure sounds too low to me. They may be saying that they're more powerful than advertised - over 650hp.


*someone correct me if i'm wrong. honestly not confident enough to say for sure

what's kraftwerk? A firm specialized with something related to protection of animals or training dogs?

The previous gen was rated at 600 HP and dyno'ed at around 530 RWHP. About 12% parasitic loss. The magic is said to be due to the Tremec TR6060 transmission, which is supposed to be very efficient in terms of low loss.

This is the same transmission the ZR1 Vette uses.

A crap 'article', but it's now '24 years later' for the Viper.

That's interesting. I'd have expected 14% or 15% - but then again I don't know a lot on this subject. thanks

They're all rules of thumb anyway. The figures are as different as drivetrains are. FF transaxle setup with no final rear end gear vs AWD with its multiple diffs and/or transfer case vs RWD with either a front transmission or a rear transmission, having a torque converter, etc. Overbuilt drivetrains made to handle more power can lose a little more than a relatively simple cogset from a 1.4L, too.
