This 1930 Rolls-Royce is Hiding a Big, Loud Secret

The folks at Hooniverse specialize in strange rides. Spend a good 20 minutes tumbling around their site and you’ll learn more about former-Soviet-Bloc cars then you ever thought imaginable. Today, we’re examining a car that they found that is more of the Allied Forces persuasion.

At first glance, this might look like a rare-but-staid 1930 Rolls-Royce, but further inspection reveals that something is amiss. Those exhaust pipes look rather peculiar, protruding so stubbornly from the bonnet. In fact, what resides under the hood is the fire-breathing V10 from a 2004 Dodge Viper! Sweet babies!

Jeff Glucker and the Hooniverse crew found this Anglo-American merger on the Viper Club forums, and it is an insane concoction of automotive ingenuity. Frankly, there are too many trailer queens out there, and this unique resto-mod will certainly get a workout. Since it’s out of Michigan, this would make an ideal car for the Woodward Dream Cruise. We’d love to see video of this thing in action!
