(american Comparison) Zo6 Vs. Viper Vs. Cobra R

WHO IS THE BADDEST SPORTS CAR OUT THERE I STILL THINK IT THE COBRA R I MEAN WHO CARES IF IT DOESNT HAVE A RADIO OR AIR CONDITIONING UR RADIO IS THE SOUND OF THE 5.4 LITER V-8 385HP ENGINE RUMBLING THROUGH TI DUAL EXHAUST AND UR AIR CONDITIONER IS THE WINDOW DOWN

I am afraid that the Z06 and the Viper would mop the floor with a Cobra R. Between the Z06 and Viper however; it is a very close pick between these two but being a Mopar guy I have to pick the Viper.

overall the zo6 hands down. the viper may outmuscle it but the vette does it with just that much more refinement. easier to live with everyday in IMO the obvious american icon.

in car and driver it went ...cobra r got 3rd cause it basically sucked to them....viper got 2nd cause of the tight jet like interior set up...and the z06 got 1st cause it is the least expensive of the 3 and the most fun to drive.... it wasnt as fast as the viper though but they didnt care...and you cant even answer this post unless you have driven the 3 for yourself....different people will have different opinions..i personally would have trouble choosing between the viper and z06 ..."im a chevy guy so i would most likely go for the z06".....but i would throw that cobra r out of this race period...they would be way better off using a saleen s351, why a cobra r !?



peace yall!

NOW WHEN THE NEW 2003 VIPER COMES OUT IT WILL BE THE BADDEST THEN THE 2002 ZO6 WITH 405HP AND I HAVE NO IDEA ABOUT THE COBRA R BUT IT WILL PROBABLY REPLACED BY THE 2003 MUSTANG COBRA WITH 390HP

first i have to say i am a mustang fan...collect the older models...although, i am infatuated with the Viper, hope one day when i grow up, i can have one...not trying to make a biassed opion, but the Viper wins hands down, we're talkin pure american muscle...you can flip through older versions of car and driver and they agree...in all tests done, in 1/4 mile, top speed, road course, etc...the only event the viper got beat in was the road course by a ferrari, and it wasn't by that much...i love the styling of the cobra r, but it just doesn't compete with the viper or the z06...i have experience behind the wheel of the vette and i must say its quite a nice ride, but when your talkin these kinds of cars, your lookin for the loudest, deepest rumbling, bad ass muscle that makes other cars tremble, and the viper does that

Since its all subjective anyway, I'd go with the Viper. The other cars wouldn't make that great of a daily driver anyway so I'd lean toward more raw power then anything else. Not to mention, that there are tons of Mustangs and Vettes on the road (I know not the R or Z06) but there are not that many Vipers cruising around out there. I like having a bit of exclusiveness.

the 2003 viper is less exclusive looking though...


i would go viper for the looks...

for a daily driver, i would go zo6 b/c it is sooo perfect in so many aspects...

the viper is a "hey muhfugga, look at me" kinda car, which i really like, but i love cars that handle... zo6...

mainly b/c it has a/c over the cobra... cuz i love old stangs too, but the viper looks more like a part of that family than the new mustang...

Thumbs up tuff choice.

The ZO6. But that Viper is tempting... BTW, I'm assuming these cost the same in the compairo. If you gave me the keys to a Viper and said I could get a ZO6 instead I'd probably decline simply because the Viper costs more.

the prices are very different in the comparo...

the zo6 is 48ish
cobra in the 50s (i believe)
and viper over 65

heres the question...

why do you want a more expensive car if the one that is 15k less can run circles around it?

vipers are cool, but unruly, and commonly found wrapped around things like fone poles...

if i gave you a civic that fit into the comparo (interior quality, suspension stuff, same times etc) and i told you it was worth 80k would you take it b/c it was worth more? hmmm...

You cant get a better performance deal than the z06.

Viper has awesome power but poor handling. The z06 and cobra will beat it on a tight track.

Cobra nearly as wonderful as the z06, but a bit too expensive.

My 2 cents.
