1100-hp Viper Speed Run, Fueled by E-85

Karl Jacob is trying to go where no driver has gone before - and he's doing it powered by ethanol.

The self-labeled "car enthusiast and entrepreneur" will try on May 18 to set a world speed record for a standing mile in a street-legal, E85-powered Dodge Viper. Jacob says he's doing it to prove that alternative fuels and high performance aren't mutually exclusive.

"The E85 Viper proves that [enthusiasts] can continue pursuing their passion without having to rely on conventional fuel," Jacob said.

Jacob converted his Viper to run on E85 for a prior attempt in April, which ended in mechanical difficulties. The second try will take place at the Mojave Air andSpace Port in Mojave, Calif.

Jacob is posting information on his ethanol Viper and his speed attempts at his Web site, www.e85viper.com.
