    The new Dodge Viper, with it's redesigned 8.4 liter 600hp engine, is officially faster than the Corvette C6 Z06 in the quarter mile and on a road course, according to Car and Driver.

    Of course, it being a performance based "rematch" between the two, Car and Driver gave 1st place to the Z06 because it was more comfortable on the street and the exhaust doesn't burn your legs. :ugh::mamoru:

    Throw some R compounds on the z06, as the viper comes equipped from the factory, and watch the deficit disappear.

    I'd take either car. I like the looks of the vette better, but the Viper is more unique
