In the latest episode of Head 2 Head, MotorTrend has put face to face two of the greatest sports car: the 2013 SRT Viper GTS against its domestic rival, the 2012 Corvette ZR1. The test drive was held at the Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca and behind the wheel was pro race driver Randy Pobst.

If you remember, at the end of 2012 there was a real fuss with the two models when MotorTrend announced that ZR1 managed to set a new Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca lap record with a time of 1:33.70, while the SRT Viper achieved a time of only 1:35.77.

This result was impressive, considering that both deliver pretty much the same output: 640 horsepower for the Viper and 638 horsepower for the ZR1. But we guess it was aerodynamics that made the difference, right?

Watch the video to find out which of the two cars has the bigger "bollocks."

It is true that both cars look very similar but their engines are very different. I like the Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 more because it is more affordable compared to SRT Viper GTS. It is nice to watch the cars went head to head.

You don’t even know what the word semi-slick means you moron. The tires the viper uses are on paper stickier than the michelins and wider. The outside wall on the pilot sports are almost slick and have very little thread. Their good for track use and the compound can handle better abuse. Perks for chevrolet to use the best tires available to them. Do you think Ferrari would settle for a subpar tire? The Corsas are what Ferrari have been using for a while now and the Viper has the same, Now STFU and go cry more

For all who don’t know, the vette is running on semi-slicks, The very sticky Michelin Pilot Sport Cups, A very unfair advantage, Put these tires on any other capable supercar say GTR,458,R8-GT and yes the viper allso and they woulkd lay down a time the vette would not be abble to beat,Just sayin!!!!! Tell the truth MT
