For the most recent Head 2 Head, between the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06, and the 2016 Dodge Viper ACR! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9qWYJQClIyY
Corvette is the poor man's viper. Inferior in every way except price.
Although, having tested the previous 2014 SRT viper, i have to say, they're pretty good at making you shit your pants too.
Those things are fucking raw. It's like shaving your face with a chainsaw. The vette just feels much tamer. Both fun though, so whatever.
He can say what he wants, but with the same driver on the same course they run virtually the same times at Laguna
The ZR1 on it's last legs at LS against the original Viper ran a 1:33 iirc
it gets spanked by a c5. cherry pick all the journalism tests set years apart if you want, like the tripfag said in real world applications it cant stand up to the previous gens.
>but the c5 worth 10k has a sueprcharger slapped on it!
Dont bother. Americans think horribly inconsistent 1st party vs 3rd party times mean anything. Even 3rd party vs 3rd party doesnt really mean anything.
>one day c$d/motortrend do a few hot laps in a euro car, thats good enough
>another day c$d/motortrend do an entire days worth of hot laps in an american car, thats more than good enough
The thing is though Nurburgring times are done by the manufacturer, who are willing to stay there for a month to get the best possible time. And they dont leave until they reach their set goal. They are more comparable than results of a few hotlaps vs results of an entire days testing.
