SRT Viper and McLaren 12C Show Corvette Who's Boss

While the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray is the most powerful base spec Corvette ever offered, it still can’t hold a candle to some of the more elite supercars going around, most notably the SRT Viper and McLaren 12C.

Straight out the gate, the McLaren 12C is downright one of the fastest accelerating cars on the planet. Additionally, it can lap a track faster than almost any other road-car in the world. By comparison, the SRT Viper is much more about brute force than it is finesse and this is exemplified by the fact that it features a massive 8.4-liter V10 naturally aspirated engine.

So how do you think the new Corvette will perform against this two in a set of rolling drag races? Well, the results are quite obvious. However, when the Corvette Stingray Z06 is revealed in just a couple of weeks, it should be more than capable of taking the fight to both the SRT Viper and McLaren 12C.
