Instead of arguing about something that is not objective, but rather factual, why not look it up?

ok i just did like a ten minute research and i found that ford gt has 215 mph top speed and dodge viper venom 600 (fastest model i found so far) gets 205 mph. so as of now i win the arguement until someone finds a stock viper that is faster

Newsflashs for a tard.

1. The Viper Venom (notice the use of proper capitalization) is not a "stock Viper". It is a Viper that has been modified, which of course is why it's called a Venom Viper instead of just a Viper.

2. If the GT could actually do 215 mph, Ford would trumpet that from the top of the highest building in Detroit. The problem is it can't. Not even in their own tests. Don't believe me? Just look here.

1. The Viper Venom is not stock...thats a Hennessey project. And if you were looking for that, you would find a Viper Venom 1100...producing over 1100 horsepower and a top speed of over 250mph.


2. http://www.seriouswheels.com/top-200...er-McLaren.htm

2006 ASC Diamondback Viper McLaren. 615bhp, 3.5 0-60. Hellishly cheaper then a Ford GT, coming in at just over 80K US, as compared to around the 150K mark for the Ford GT.



Edit: While doing the numbers game, vwhobo beat me on the Viper Venom

You sir, are a ****ing idiot. How about you look again at my post, where I so helpfully posted a link to a 615hp STOCK VIPER.

I'll save the idiot comment, but... The car you posted a link to IS NOT a stock Viper. It is a professionally aftermarket modified Viper. That's why it's called an ASC Diamondback Viper powered by McLaren.

Well, not really. Did Forbes magazine (admittedly one of the most influential automotive publications in the world ) test these cars, or did they "gather the data" and compile it from different sources? I know you don't know, but the rest of us do.

Don't they give you sixth graders enough homework to fill your time anymore?

Why does top speed matter anyways?

But if you want to know which is BETTER, edmunds.com conducted a test comparing the viper, gt and corvette z06, running various performance tests.

z06 came in first (ironically, because it's the cheapest one). GT came in second, and the viper came in last.

SORRY: wrong link. Let me find the right one.

And for those who don't know (jaredmt), edmunds.com is a credible source of information. If you do google an unfamiliar site, make sure to google at least a few other sites to compare info.
