We knew it was coming – this battle between the 2013 Viper and the long-awaited 2014 Corvette Stingray.
Edmunds.com quite simply labels it the “Best. War. Ever.” Few would argue.
And (spoiler alert) while Edmunds, in the end, gives the nod to the latest-generation Corvette, it admits that the Viper is a very, very special car, despite its shortcomings.
We already told you that the folks over at Edmunds.com recently matched a 2012 Corvette ZR1 against the new 2013 SRT Viper GTS in one of their Burnout Super Tests.
The Corvette dominated that competition, laying down a record-setting black stripe of more than 514 feet, nearly 100 feet longer than the Viper managed.
Now, Edmunds decided to take the 2013 Viper to the MD Automotive Dynojet chassis dyno to see what it could do.
Corvettes, be they ZR1s or Z06s, have always seemed to rule in Edmunds’ Burnout Super Tests.
Driver Josh Jacquot’s latest challenge in his continuing series featured the “old timer” 2012 ZR1 against the “young whippersnapper” 2013 SRT Viper.
As the C6 Corvette rolls off into the sunset, don’t send it to the nursing home, just yet.
For example, the last of the breed, a 2013 ZR1, just ran the lowest time ever at Laguna Seca, a 1:33.70 to snap the old mark of 1:33.99 established three years in a 2010 Dodge Viper ACR.
