E85 Viper Sets New Speed Record

Going green doesn't mean you have to go slow.

This summer, his E85 Viper project set the world record for a standing mile with a street legal vehicle at 220.7 in 27.41 seconds. The previous record was 217.85 and the vehicle used gasoline. He captured the world record for speed in his modified, street legal Dodge Viper.
