2016 Chevy Corvette Z06 vs. 2016 Dodge Viper
Forget Ferrari, Lamborghini or Koenigsegg. The two best super cars in the world are built in North America in the 2016 Chevy Corvette Z06 and 2016 Dodge Viper. These two models prove the old automotive adage, ‘There is no replacement for displacement.’ Corvette and Viper owners are the kind of people that will snap their heads around the second they hear the throaty rumble of a big engine with lots of cylinders. If you have the means and are in the market for an automobile with this kind of performance, here are three reasons to choose the Corvette Z06 over the Dodge Viper.
Price of the 2016 Corvette Z06 vs. 2016 Dodge Viper
We might as well address the elephant in the room right away. Once a vehicle starts to approach the $100,000 mark, it’s tough to sell it as a bargain. However, looking at the prices of the 2016 Chevy Corvette Z06 and the 2016 Viper, a strong case can be made that the former is a smarter buy over the latter.
There is no doubt that the development of the Dodge Viper helped take the focus off of Europe as the sole place where super cars are made. But a buyer is certainly going to pay for that. A base model Dodge Viper is going to have a six-figure manufacturer’s suggested retail price. That’s before floor mats are added. By comparison, an interested Don Wheaton customer can take home the 2016 Chevy Corvette Z06 for significantly less than that number. Rebates and incentives notwithstanding, a base trim Corvette Z06 will be about $25,000 cheaper than the corresponding version of the Dodge Viper.
Performance of the 2016 Corvette Z06 vs. 2016 Viper
Vehicles like the 2016 Chevy Corvette Z06 and 2016 Dodge Viper are meant to do one thing, go fast. If that is the sole aim of potential buyer, both of these vehicles do that beautifully. Given the shocking price tag of the 2016 Viper, there is no real performance advantage over the 2016 Corvette Z06. The best way to illustrate this point is to let the cars speak for themselves.

Independent reviewers have loudly praised the 2016 Chevy Corvette Z06 for having one of the best interiors of any member of the Corvette family. The passenger cabin is focused on a driver’s need to be able to easily access every button and dial. Additionally, the 2016 Corvette Z06 is just simply more comfortable to drive than the 2016 Dodge Viper. Both super cars are built to provide a certain level of snugness to support aggressive driving. However, the Viper takes this idea a bit too far. A long time bugaboo with the Dodge super car is that it can be somewhat uncomfortable to enter and exit. Outward visibility is also somewhat lacking with the Viper, according to independent reviews.
