"By using an aluminum block over the standard cast iron of the V8, the fuel-injected 90-degree Falconer V12 weighs roughly 500 pounds, some 100 more than Chevy's L98 V8. In return for the added mass, it also produces 686 horsepower and 600 pound-feet of torque."

I'm slightly relieved that they never released this beast. It most certainly would have been the end of Viper.

Edit: I really don't think they would have stuck a V12 in Viper to compete. They would have just stayed with the V10 platform, and all the guys would have moved to the Corvette V12 from Viper. Because that's the type of dudes that own vipers. The type of dudes that say, "Yeah that's cool, but it ain't no V10." That type of dude never wants to hear, "Yeah your V10 Viper is cool, right up until a V12 Vette rolls up."
