A three o'clock schoolyard showdown between these two Motor City bullies wasn't a question of if, but rather when. For a time, the Viper and the wickedest of the Corvette line, the Z06, kept their distance because there were major differences between the two. The Viper was an 85K roadster, the Z06 a 53K coupe. Sure, some mags compared the two, but the cars were just too different to make an even fight.
