On this episode of Head 2 Head, Jonny Lieberman pits the new 2013 SRT Viper GTS against its domestic rival, the 2012 Corvette ZR1. It's an all American prizefight as Jonny heads north to Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca to hot lap these two monsters with pro race driver Randy Pobst. And of course, no match up between these two contenders would be complete with out a drag race. It's one for the record books as Jonny and Randy find out which car has the bigger "bollocks."

      correct me if im wrong, but when they tested the viper the driver was very negative even though these cars are so similar. if i was blind i would think hes talking about a 90's viper.

      Is it a truly better handling car or does the Viper lack the Vette's braking power?

      Lets put the ZR1 on cup tires and then compare the grip...head2head needs to get it together. Both great cars, but as least make the grounds equal on both ends.

      I don't see why randy said the viper was faster in a straight line when they just tested them as identical in the 1/4

      The Corvettes Michelin Pilot Sport Cup2 have better performance over all compared to the Vipers Pirelli Corsas. If Viper had those tyres..... and those brakes. But Michelin doesn't design rear tyres for the viper.

      I would not care the viper alot better looking car, the vette we see all the time, nothing like seeing a viper, still the best looking care dodge has on the market. In the long run we want to look good and the viper will give you that. Got to remember viper has a smaller tire.

      This viper was pre-production. A retest with a Viper TA yielded a 1.33.62. Anyway I had the chance to buy both cars (C7 & Viper). I tested both and walked away with the viper. To me, it wasn't even close. The vette Z06 was so plastic-y and cheap. The vette's clutch was awful, no modulation and it was the same with throttle. Both were like on/off switches making it miserable street light to street light. Direct injection is a HUGE no. Walnut shells to clean the backside of the intake valves...no thanks Chevy. The viper is such a drivers car. Incredible feedback to the driver. I was numb in the corvette. The viper is a super low production, hand made, naturally aspirated beast. It was a no brainier. You think pictures look good? It's unbelievable in person. This C6 looks better than the C7...I did consider the C6 as well...the interior is really dated.

      The viper gets extra points for the snake that appears when you approach red line

      The viper is not worth the money dont get me wrong I wanted one but the more I look at it for the performance not worth it..awww factor all day viper but as a corvette owner now most of them just see my tail lights have not been beaten by a viper yet. I know some one with a 1500 hp that cant even drive it on the street will talk sh.. but mine is a daily driver and I smoke vipers.
