The Dodge Viper’s Evil Twin: VLF Force 1 is Unveiled
So what do you get when you combine the engine from a Dodge Viper and a carbon-fiber body, then have that body be designed by the same man who designed the Aston Martin DB9, then have the whole thing tested and refined by someone who races Dodge Vipers? Well, the age-old question may finally be answered with the unveiling of the VLF Force 1.
Henrik Fisker led the design team that put this car together, but most people will spot that this car bears some striking similarities with the Dodge Viper. I looks like the Viper’s evil twin. Its grille looks a face frozen in a fit of maniacal laughter and the bold (and somewhat brutal) lines around the body give off a very foreboding vibe. This is not a car that fills your heart with warm fuzzy feelings.
Those huge deep-dish rims with their rather minimal design add to the effect, making the whole car look dangerous. Not in a bad way, but dangerous like a roller coaster or a good horror movie. You don’t think it’s going to kill you, but you know it will definitely scare you half to death.
Under the ample hood sits the heart of a Viper; an 8.4 liter V10. In the Force 1, the engine cranks out 745 hp and 638 lb-ft. of torque. The power then travels through a 6-speed manual transmission and meets the ground via Pirelli P-Zero tires. This combination of potent power and attention to the all-important matter of keeping traction when it is actually being used properly, this car goes 0-60 in 3 seconds.
If you look closely,you can make out a special holster made to secure 2 bottles of champagne. This matches the luxurious and very detail-oriented interior that is probably the biggest departure from its origin vehicle. This isn’t particularly appropriate for this car, of course. A rear-wheel drive supercar that can go from 0-60 in 3 seconds? It should come with a tiny holster to hold a bottle of Air Force go-pills and a device that prevents the driver from blinking like something out of A Clockwork Orange.
Only 50 of these machines will be made, so there are not many people who will get to experience the fury of this ferocious GT car. That said, I don’t think that 50 people should buy this car. 1-3 real, actual super-villains should buy the whole lot and use them exclusively to do heinous things. When the sound blasting out of those side-exhaust pipes comes around the corner, everyone will run in fear. And that is exactly the effect this car should have.
