No, you were right ...almost. It is actually $250,000.00!

A V-10 uses all 10 cylinders just as a V-8 uses all 8.

In a V-10, there is a cylinder hitting top dead center every 36 degrees of engine rotation.

In a V-8, there is vegetable juice......er.......a cylinder hitting top dead center every 45 degrees of engine rotation.

The company makes a V8 but that's a Viper engine. If I remember correctly that was the prototype. The molds were destroyed in a fire or something so it's the only one he plans on building. I'd have to buy two real Vipers before I'd even concider buying that one. lol
