Take a break from Detroit with a supercar vs. supercar showdown on Drag Race Tuesdays.
This week's edition of Drag Race Tuesdays features a rolling start showdown between a 2011 Lamborghini LP570-4 Superleggera and a 2003 Dodge Viper. They go at it several times, giving us a clear indication of what each of these powerful machines can do. The 2011 Lamborghini Superleggera is running at stock, putting out a solid 562hp (though the video claims 570hp) and 398 lb-ft of torque. According to the Italian automaker, the 2011 edition can hit 60mph from rest in 3.4 seconds and 124mph in 10.2 seconds.
The 2003 Dodge Viper SRT-10 has been enhanced a bit and puts out 555hp at the rear wheels. It runs on an 8.3-liter V10 engine which, at stock, can only put out 500hp and 525 lb-ft of torque. According to Dodge, It can run from 0-60mph in 4 seconds, hit 100mph in 9.3 seconds and finish the quarter mile in 12 seconds. It's safe to say this particular Viper is much quicker. According to the authors of the video, the Viper originally ran on Nitto tires which they switched out to give it more grip. Apparently it was also over-heating due to coolant loss so several runs had to be cut short.
In any case, this is still a close race between two of the most famous supercars on the road today. Make your picks and choose your sides now. Who ya got, the Italian Raging Bull or the American... snake?
