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.
