While this video could just as easily fit into our Black Fridays segment, this clip of a heavily worked early 3rd gen Ram 2500 blowing away a supercharged Viper AND a Toyota Supra on the quarter mile is just too good to pass up for Truckin’ Fast Wednesday.
This 3rd generation Dodge Ram 2500 is powered by a Cummins Turbo Diesel packing a serious build with a single 75mm turbo – with a whopping 1,185 horsepower and 1,900lb-ft of torque on tap. That is enough power to hustle this beast down the track with a run of 11.07 at almost 121 miles per hour against the silver Viper that is supposed to be supercharged but with a time of 11.81, I have to question that brief mod list.
As an extra bonus, there is also a clip of this same Cummins powered Dodge Ram beating the tar out of a built Toyota Supra (as shown in the image above) followed by another video of that silver Viper beating up on a Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution. This only thing better than watching a Ram with almost 1,200 horsepower rocket down the dragstrip against the ultimate American supercar is also getting to watch that Ram and that Viper beat up on some Japanese sports cars.
The sound on this video is great so many sure to crank up your speakers and enjoy!
