The new Vette is pretty hardcore...and it makes it hard to choose since they both have hardtops now and both are close in price (the ZO6 is around 65 they said) and the Viper is around 85...

So I gotta say ZO6 Vette...I hate the interior but it looks good everywhere else

I think I speak for the Majority of the people out ther when I say: Viper.

Who would win or which do I like? I like Corvette, but I think the Viper would win.

Corvette by far. I forgot where I read this, but one mag did a track day with all the higher-end sports cars and the C6 (non Z06) beat the Viper around a road course. Imagine what the Z06 will do... Somehow a 8.3L V10 only putting out 500hp seems quite pathetic to me too when BMW has their new 5.0L V10 putting out 507hp.

Yeah, I like the Corvette better. The Viper is too crude and the first generation styling still makes me skeptical of them. However, the new SRT-10 is much better in terms of styling and refinement, nothing can beat the classic Corvette. Watch out SRT, here comes the Z06!

Viper is faster in a straight line but that's only because of its ridiculously large engine. I believe the C6 is much more refined and is an all-round better car. Also, the Viper gets 12/21 fuel economy, C6 gets 18/28.

Who give's a crap about fuel economy? A Ferrari F360 has a much more "efficient" engine that gets worse fuel economy! I've daily driven cars that get 10 mpg... But a car like this isn't going to be an only car, so what it gets for mileage is less than unimportant.

The Viper GTS is a decent all around performer, that is more rare than the Corvette 9which is why it's more expensive). The all aluminum V10 is actualy pretty compact and lightweight, and it sits pretty far back in the chassis for excellent weight distribution. it may be crude for a street car, but for a race car it's positively luxurious. Since I've lived with actual race cars on the street, the Viper doens't seem crude at all.

I love driving them. This is me in a co-worker's GTS...

Vette

I would have to say the vette mostly because the 69' vette is one of the sickest cars out there. However if i were not to include the older version the Viper would be my choice because it looks awsome and is freakin amazing with a v10 compared to the v6 or v8 in the vette. I don't really know what i'm talking about but thats my

The Corvette is a much more well rounded car and for at least $20k less than the Viper. Really, the only thing it gives up to the Viper is power and acceleration.

And when the new LS7 powered Z06 hits, it sounds like the Viper will lose even that edge.

I say Corvette. The American sportscar.

The Viper is overpriced, and (have you sat in one?) undersized!

Yes, the C6 beat the SRT-10 around a roadcourse by a full second I believe, and the Z06 is going to have an extra 100 horses over the C6, not to mention upgraded wheels, tires, brakes, suspension, and aerodynamics(not much but enough to count.)

I've read that the z06 will start in the $55k range, the c6 at $45k. Ofcourse, once it's all optioned out, I can see $65k.

And the comment on the interior? True, it's no Ferrari, but it's getting better. Take the $20k+ you saved and spice it up a little. I bet you could be shocked at what $2k can do to your interior, less if you can do it yourself.

I like the Viper more than any Corvette. I must say that the new C6 is nice, as is the Z06, but I just like the Vipers more. Cant really say why. I dont really like GMs so that could be why. But the C6 is pretty nice!

I choose the Corvette simply because it's better.

what makes a car better you ask? Price? Performace? Power-Weight? Horsepower-Litre? Interior? Exterior?

Well in all aspects the Corvette wins...except for maybe horsepower per litre, because I figure that the hp per litre is a ludicrious thing to check because a 23 horsepower 1 litre lawn mower could be equal to a 230 horsepower 10 litre Jap car.

Also with the new Z06 Vette coming out in '06 it definetly makes the Vette a winner by far, because not only will it be able to compete with the Viper, but also with most Porsche's and dare I say the Ford GT '05...550HP vs. 500?



By the way this is my first post here!!!
