    • New 2013 Viper SRT versus 997.2 Turbo S PDK roll on races, both stock

      Great race video here of the new Viper going up against a Porsche 997 Turbo S. This video essentially illustrates raw brute force against technology. The Viper packing a 640 horsepower naturally aspirated 8.4 liter V10 with 600 pound-feet of torque mated to a 6-speed manual transmission. The Porsche motor is less than half the size at 3.6 liters and only six cylinders but the two turbochargers make up for it. That, and the PDK dual clutch transmission.

      Even though the Porsche is all wheel drive, heavier (about 250 pounds more), and rated at less power with 'only' 560 horses yet this is a very close race. Two different types of cars but both undeniably fast. Great runs, check out the vid below.

        I'm really digging the new Viper too. Not too many cars as raw made like it these days. It's just a huge motor in a fairly light car. Awesome.
