corvette vs viper

at the local chevy dealership they just recently got in a 2004 corvette V8 5.7 , 6 speed man. with under 200 miles, yesterday the dodge place just got a 2000 dodge viper V10 , 6 speed man. with over 27,000 miles and naturally there have been what if's about them racing. if they did race would the viper make the corvette look like a joke or does the corvette stand a chance?

in drag racing, the viper will own the vette, even if its a z06.

Hmmm.. Thats strange.. Everyone seems to be wrong so far...

1998 Dodge Viper RT/10

0-60: 4.1
1/4 mile: 12.30


2004 Z06 vette..

0-60 4.0
1/4 mile: 12.05

Oh, and the new Z06 suspension setup means that it will also handle better too...

And yes, my recent attitude is but a vain attempt to make up for the lack of VW being here...

Anyway, what kind of viper are we talking here? Theres tons of them you monkies . Now look, take a Hennessey Viper and DAMN! 0-60 in 2.something seconds! F*ck! Vette would look like a damn lawnmower out of fuel.

Ya I was wondering the same thing. I was also going to point out the same facts that R34RB30DETTV did but alas I was too late. For the Money the new Vette is even cheaper than the Viper too. That leads me to think, which would I rather drive? That is a tough question as well

Not if we were comparing it to your 2.0s vette that you were talking about earlier this month. They should be pretty comparable then, huh?

the vette is obviously cheaper, by a large margin, so why not just slap on a turbocharger on the vette and smoke verything for less money?

you picked the rt, which i think is a convertible. its a little slower and heavier than the gts coupe version, but no matter, we are comparaing cars that were made 6 years apart.

Also, post a link to where you got those numbers.

you definitely can't compare a 1998 Viper to a 2004 Z06...and when one compares the 2004 Viper to the 2004 Vette...

" Even when compared with the $70,000 Viper, this Vette can hold its own. Sure the Viper with 450 HP will take it off the line, but not by much, and the Z06 is better balanced and easier to drive."

also...

Acceleration 0 to 60 4.2 Seconds
Top Speed 171 (Manufacturer's Figures)
1/4 mile Acceleration 12.6 Secs. 114 MPH (Manufacturer's Figures)

http://www.familycar.com/RoadTests/CorvetteZ06/

and the Viper...

Acceleration 0-62 mph s: <4.0
Top Speed mph (km/h): 190 (306)

http://www.rsportscars.com/eng/cars/viper_srt.asp

how about them apples.

speaking of the 2k4 viper, i was reading an article in motortrend about the viper vs ford gt. check it out here
seems the gt has better 0-100 but the viper wins in the 1/4th. these cars are monsters.
