The 2013 Dodge Viper SRT takes on a 2014 Chevy Corvette Stingray. Edmunds.com put both through their paces, and you would be surprised at the results.
Now it goes without saying that the Viper SRT is faster than a Corvette Stingray. Edmunds.com even tested that on the quarter mile: the Viper came in at 11.72 seconds at 124.09 miles per hour, while the Stingray managed only 12.39 seconds at 113.73 mph. The Viper did 0-60 miles per hour in 3.5 seconds compared to the the Corvette’s 4.1-second run.
But the Corvette Stingray more than rose to the challenge in other ways. In short, if it isn’t in a straight line, the Stingray is the clear winner of the two. On the skidpad, the Stingray pulls 1.05g compared to the Viper’s 1.01g. The Stingray also blows away the slalom, where the Viper has to go a maxed out 72mph, by pulling 73.5mph. The Stingray also managed a win in braking power, stopping from 60 in 99 feet, compared to the Viper’s 110ft.
So for straight out speed, it’s definitely the Dodge Viper SRT you want. If it’s handling, at least in this test, the new Chevy Corvette Stingray comes out on top.
