I just got done reading a comparo between the Vette ZR1 and the new Viper in Car and Driver last night. Best I remember the Viper is banging 60mph in the sub 3.5 second area and the 1/4 mile in the sub 11.5 second range. That would slot it in handily between the Vette and the Shelby GT500. A big issue there though is that the GT500 starts at $55K while the Vette and the Viper are both $100K give or take.

The Viper sure looks badass but given the choice I would take the Shelby hands down and that's before you consider that I would have $40K+ left over after buying it. It's all personal preference though. It doesn't really matter because they probably wouldn't let me test drive any of these cars, let alone ever own one, lol.
