Watch an SRT Viper Race an F-16 Fighter Jet

Someone was bound to set up something like this eventually.

We already know the SRT Viper is a fast car. But is it faster than, say, an F-16 fighter jet? What would happen if the two were pitted head-to-head in a drag race? That’s something the Viper Club of America wanted to find out. The club’s National Secretary, John Canal, gets behind the wheel of the V10-powered supercar while a military pilot takes the controls of the Fighting Falcon. The race takes place on a 3,000 foot runway at Luke Air Force Base in Phoenix, Arizona.

So which American-built display of engineering excellence comes out the winner? You’ll have to watch the video ahead to find out.
