There’s been a long-standing battle between cars and helicopters to see who can outdo whom (remember the Corvette/Apachee comparison a couple of months ago?). Well, this battle has taken a new twist and, somewhere along the line, you should have known that Top Gear would end up having something to do with it.

Well, your partly right on that one. While Top Gear was in fact responsible for pitting thisDodge Viper against a Cobra attack helicopter, it’s not the original version of Top Gear we’re talking about, but the recently re-launched Top Gear USA.

The show was once again caught taping, this time at the Griffin Spalding County Airport in Georgia, where hosts Tanner Foust and Rutledge Wood were accompanied by what looks to be two Viper ACRs and a Cobra attack helicopter. While it’s too presumptious to say that the Viper was able to "out-slither" the Cobra to the finish line, the video taken by a curious spectator seems to suggest so.

Guess we’ll just have to keep tabs on Top Gear USA to find out.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More
