Viper-powered Chrysler 300 turns out to be project car created by Derek Ekins

The Viper-powered Chrysler 300 teased just recently has turned out to be a project car created by Derek Ekins.

The car began life as a 2006 Chrysler 300 Touring, and while you can see an array of visual modifications, the important stuff is underneath. Power comes from a tuned 8.3L Viper V10, developing 525 hp and hooked up to a six-speed manual gearbox. To make sure it handled well, Ekins threw in Eibach adjustable coilovers on all four corners, as well as a swaybar kit.

A bigger, more powerful engine meant less fuel economy and more heat, so the trunk space has been filled up with a fuel tank, while the cooling system receives a 3-inch thick racing radiator and a custom oil filter.

It all appears to have paid off, and the best part is that everything, save for the wiring harness and computer reflash (Done by Hotwire Auto and DC Performance respectively), was done by Mr.Ekins himself. We salute you for such an awesome creation.
