Maybe this is what the boss has to say when your competition is smashing you in the sales – and critical reviews – departments.

“We’ve never tried to be Corvette. We never will be. We’re handmade. It takes 18 hours to paint the stripe on a Viper. We color sand the entire car, inside and outside. All the panels are beautifully finished. We’re trying to build a custom show car that you can own. This is not a disposable device here.”

Corvettes on Craiglist: This Viper Was Built on a C4 Corvette

If you can’t make up your mind whether to buy a Corvette or a Viper, then this might be the perfect car for you.

The owner of this C4 Corvette has done major body work and changed it into a 1996-2002 Viper lookalike. The owner doesn’t say which year Corvette it is, but based on the dash, it looks like a 1985-89 before the interior changed in 1990.

[VIDEO] MotorTend Head 2 Head: SRT Viper GTS vs Chevrolet Corvette ZR1

Motor Trend’s Head 2 Head recently put the C6 Corvette ZR1 up against the new SRT Viper GTS in a variety of settings, and – spoiler alert – the Chevy emerged as the champ once again.

Jonny Lieberman, senior features editor of the magazine, first climbs into the two cars and after taking both for a spin, says he actually had a hard time telling one from the other – “they’re that similar.”

Edmunds Dyno Tests the 2012 Corvette ZR1 and the 2013 SRT Viper GTS

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.

2013 Corvette ZR1 Beats Out 2013 SRT Viper for Lap Record at Laguna Seca

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.

Burnout Super Test: Viper SRT-10 vs. 2011 Corvette Z06 Carbon Prototype

Edmunds took a Viper SRT-10 and a 2011 Corvette Z06 Carbon prototype out to a track to determine which car could lay the longest burnout. Finally, a comparision test I can get excited about! Both cars got three attempts and their tire marks were measured. Josh Jacquot was the driver for this non-scientific test and although he was bullish on the Viper from the get-go, it was the Velocity Yellow Z06 Corvette that left the biggest (and longest) impression.
