we're so behind here -- 08 viper w/ 600hp

http://www.edmunds.com/insideline/do...ticleId=118999




So basically the 08s will have 600hp. This is old news slightly, but you guys need to be caught up.



There is also a Mopar edition that will make 675hp. I'm not sure if that will be production or not.


Basically looks the same but now w/ hood vents.


I am very impressed and I would love to have one of these. It's a great value...and that's an understatement.

That looks lovely. Great colour in the top picture, too. 675bhp sounds amazing, literally probably, lol.

Top speed's probably well above 220mph .

Ya, I read about that a few days ago. Looks pretty off the chain. I don't see all that many Vipers toodling around... I see way more Vettes.

Probably because one is nearly double the cost of the other.

Yeh and the Z06 out performs the Viper, so why pay more for a slower car.

It doesn't really. You just hear one person's favor.


They're probably about the same.

Too close to call in the real world really, like Bronxie said, they're about the same. The Dodge has better torque figures, and the Vette has an unoticeable difference in BHP. The only real advantage is that the Corvette's alot cheaper than the Viper!

You don't understand because you are still young. Ultimate performance isn't always what people want.

I personally would rather have the 400 hp C6 over the 505 Z06. I'm not competing in any races, so I don't need to waste an extra 20g's for someone else to give me more performance on a car that will look the same. I love what the Z06 is, but it's just a faster Vette' to my wallet. If I were to spend that much money on a car, I'd rather pay a little more and get something more exotic, more special, more rare...like a Viper.

And if I wanted a 505 hp Corvette, I'd rather personalize a "stock" C6 to 505+ hp than buy a Z06.

Your 0-60 time of 3.4 seconds is the fastest I've ever seen for the Z06. That is definitely not normal.

By the way, Vipers are selling below sticker price. We know the deal with the Z06.
