2013 Dodge Viper SRT vs. Its Competition

2013 Dodge SRT Viper GTS
Nelson Ireson Nelson Ireson Senior Editor

The 2013 Viper is likely to stand in a class by itself except for the likes of the 2012 Corvette ZR1, at least in terms of performance-to-price ratio.

Some of the Italian and German exotics will likely run with, or at least get close to, the Viper's ultimate pace, but at three times the cost.

We'll have to wait until further details on the Viper emerge to compare further, but if it delivers on the promise of a more refined, luxurious version of its extreme-performance forbear, it will be one of the top supercars in the world--at any price.

Quick Specs
8.0
The 2013 Dodge SRT Viper is undeniably a supercar, fearsome in its aspect and performance, but it still has some rough edges--and might not command the respect an Italian or German marque would.
8.8
Balanced, comfortable, and very fast (or very, very fast), the 2013 Chevrolet Corvette promises to ring out the C6 generation with grace and aptitude as well as attitude.
8.8
Earthy exhaust tones and serene handling carve out a distinctive niche for the fabulous Maserati GranTurismo.
