    Video Shows Viper TA Stomping a 2015 Corvette Z06 Over and Over

    image.jpg

    The 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 is marketed as the most track capable Corvette ever, but as the first units have begun reaching buyers around the country, a video has surfaced showing the new Z06 racing a Dodge Viper TA on the open road – and getting beaten very, very badly every time.
    The 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 is an awesome machine and at the root of the most track capable Corvette ever is a new, supercharged LT4 V8 that delivers 650 horsepower and 650lb-ft of torque. That is quite a step up from the 640 horsepower and 600lb-ft of torque offered by the 2014 Dodge Viper TA, and with the basic Corvette Stingray giving the Viper such a strong run in pretty much every competition – it seemed that the Z06 would be the Vette to finally slay the Viper.

    Well, the first race between a 2015 Corvette Z06 and a current generation Dodge Viper has hit the internet and frankly, the results are mind blowing. The Viper beats the C7 Z06 and it does so in very convincing form.

    Viper Versus Z06 – Round 1
    This new video shows a collection of races between a factory stock 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 coupe and a factory stock 2014 Dodge Viper TA. The first few runs have the two American supercars racing from a roll, starting at 40 to 60 miles per hour and letting off when the Viper hits some crazy high speeds. On the 5th run, we get to see a drag race from a stop up to 155 miles per hour and like the first four, this is shot from the Viper’s perspective and in every case – the Viper beats the Vette very convincingly.

    On the 6th run, we jump over to the Corvette Z06 which then has a passenger and that added weight only seems to make things worse, as the Viper pulls away in a big hurry. Finally, the final run is more of the same, with the Mopar supercar handing “Big Nasty” a big beating.

    Why is the Viper Winning?
    The 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 has a touch more power and a ton more torque than the 2014 Viper TA, the Viper does have the curb weight advantage with the Vette weighing 3,524lbs while the Viper tips the scales at just 3,390lbs. That 134 pound difference between the two gives the Viper a power to weight ratio advantage that plays a big part in the outcome of these races, although you would think that the Corvette’s massive torque advantage would allow the Z06 to at least be a little more competitive than the races shown here.

    I also have to wonder if there might be a difference in skill levels between the person behind the wheel of the Corvette Z06 and the person driving the Viper. As you watch the video, take special notice of how obvious the shift points are for the Corvette. You can see the nose dip mid-shift at the same times as the Viper jumps out ahead in big chunks, but when watching from the Corvette view, you can barely see the Viper shifts in the body movement of the vehicle. That leads me to believe that the Viper is being driven better and in a race this tight - that is the best advantage to have.

    So kick back, relax and enjoy this video showing the Dodge Viper TA beating the Chevrolet Corvette Z06 coupe seven times.

    I am surprised they are not giving consideration for the transmission on the shifting and drive. After just having my car a week, it is so easy to shift and run through the gears, I could see where it would have an advantage over Corvette transmission and I am a crappy driver compared to these guys. Bottom line, the Viper beat the Vette over and over!! LMAO!! moral of the story...HEMI kicks a$$ all day long!!:D:D:D:D:D
