Someone Stuffed a Viper V-10 Into This Honda S2000
It's like a modern Shelby Cobra... except with two more cylinders. And a lot more pink.

The Honda S2000 is great to drive because it's light and balanced. A lot of that has to do with its high-revving VTEC-equipped inline-four. But if you want to take it drifting, you'll want a lot more firepower. One owner decided to take that edict to the extreme, swapping in a massive V-10 under the hood.

According to Engine Swap Depot, this car was built by Trønder Bataljonen Racing in Norway for Kristine Sandvik. It's a 2001 AP1 model that's had its original 2.0-liter engine swapped out for an 8.3-liter V-10 sourced from a 2005 Dodge Ram SRT-10 (which sourced its powertrain from the Viper). It makes 506 horsepower and 542 lb-ft of torque, getting power to the rear wheels is a T56 six-speed manual and a welded differential.

Other upgrades include a widebody kit, bigger brakes, spacers for fitting wider wheels, an angle kit for drifting, a hydraulic handbrake, onboard fire suppression, a Koyo radiator, and D2 adjustable coil-overs. There's a custom fuel cell in the trunk feeding the engine race fuel via two high-capacity Bosch fuel pumps. There's also pink neon underbody lights to match the pink exterior paint and accents.

Honda purists might not be too into this build, but we're fans. Any time a big motor makes its way into a small car, it's going to be a fun time.

2.0L to 8.3L is quite an upgrade, that's for sure! Viper V10s make anything cool.
