800 HP Corvette Z06 Drag Races Modded Viper, Highway Fight Gets Nasty

Earlier today, we talked about a Canadian street racing session that got troublesome, with the police attempting to convince the groups that were duking it out on the highway to pull over. Well, here we are, back on the street fight topic - this time around, the racing is much simpler, as it only involves two supercars and no light bars.

We're looking at two slabs of America, with the drivers being determined to see which one is quicker. In fact, the aficionados behind the wheel were so eager to reach a conclusion that they duked it out on two separate occasions.

To be more precise, a C6-generation Chevrolet Corvette Z06 and a Gen V Dodge Viper street raced. Note that, as far as the goodies under the hood are concerned, we're talking about a heavyweight battle, since the Chevy packs a 7.0-liter V8, while the Dodge comes with an 8.4-liter V8.

However, both go-fast tools have left their factory condition behind. The 'Vette has left its naturally aspirated nature behind and, with the help of a Procharger (think: a belt-driven turbo), it now allows the driver to play with about 710 hp at the rear wheels, hence the estimation in the title above.

As for the Viper, this remains an atmospheric beast, albeit one that has been gifted with Viper Exchange heads/cam, as well as with a full Belanger exhaust. According to its driver, the thing now makes 650 hp at the wheels, which means its crankshaft output sits north of 700 ponies.

The monster, which started out in life as a 2013 Viper GTS, was used as a camera car for this stunt, which means you'll fully get to enjoy the voice of that might V10.

Now, if this Dodge seems familiar, it's probably because we also talked about the Viper earlier this week, when we showed it street racing a Lamborghini Aventador SV.
