2015 Dodge Viper vs. Its Competition

2015 Dodge Viper SRT
Nelson Ireson Nelson Ireson Senior Editor

The 2015 SRT Viper is a brutally efficient performance car, but even with the latest upgrades, it still lacks the refinement and comfort of European cars like the Audi R8 and Maserati GranTurismo.

The 2015 Chevy Corvette Stingray Z06 may be the closest current analogue to the Viper, with 650 hp and 650 lb-ft of torque from a supercharged 6.2-liter V-8.

It's the most powerful Corvette to date, and easily the most track-focused.

Unlike the Viper, the Z06 will be available with an automatic transmission and either a removable roof panel or a convertible top.

We haven't driven it yet, but expect the Z06 to further fuel the Vette-Viper rivalry.

Quick Specs
8.0
The 2015 Viper returns to the Dodge fold and includes incremental updates to its old big-engine, rear-drive formula.
9.2
The 2015 Audi R8 is a supercar fit for daily driving, thanks to its German precision and Italian powerplant.
8.8
With exceptional performance, style, comfort, features, and most of all value, the 2015 Chevy Corvette Stingray is a remarkable sports car.
8.8
The Maserati GranTurismo looks equally good with a fixed or convertible roof and offers a Ferrari-built V-8 for those who want similar power in a different Italian wrapper.
