Default ram r/t or 427ss

So I've been looking around at other car companies to see what they have to compete with the RAM R/T. From what I can see of course ford and chevy have single cab short beds but they don't make any cool versions of them like the R/T (even though I have seen some videos of the ford with a 5.0 spanking an R/T on the quarter mile )

But then I found the 427ss:





The engine is the 7.0L ls7 corvette z06 engine (427ci) with dry sump oil system that pushes 505 hp and 470 ftlbs of torque and a six speed manual trans with a 3.01: 1 first gear.

3.73 gears with a locking diff

22" rims with 305/40zr22 Pirelli Scorpion

Factory lowered suspension

6 piston baer calipers and 16" rotors all the way around

Sadly I looks like this beast never got past concept but there are a few of these things floating around in the U.S.

I hate to say it but I'm pretty sure this thing would walk all over the ram r/t untill chrylser stepped up and put the 6.4L in and changed a few other things.

Heres a refresher on the ram r/t in case anyone doesn't know about it:



5.7L hemi engine 383hp 400 ftlbs of torque

6 speed automatic

4.10 gears with locking diff

no factory drop

base 1500 brakes

22" rims

So lets say that the 427ss is in production, which one would you rather have?

Unfortunally I don't have a price on the 427 but I'm sure its well over $33,000
