Battle of 2,531 Horses

Recommended Posts



Corvette ZR1 vs. SL65 AMG Black Series, Murciélago LP640, Viper SRT10

With 600 hp (and then some), these supercars are at the pinnacle of the automotive food chain. Just like dinosaurs, they may be doomed.


Fourth: 2009 Dodge Viper SRT10

Highs: Fabulous styling, immense torque, monster performance for the money.

Lows: Requires bravery pills on bumpy roads, claustrophobic cabin, flaccid exhaust note.

The Verdict: Plenty of charm, plenty of flaws.

Third: 2010 Mercedes-Benz SL65 AMG Black Series

Highs: Gobs of power and torque, unflappable back-road performance, easy to live with.

Lows: Outrageous price, cartoonish styling, doesn't want to tell you it's having fun.

The Verdict: Serious performance delivered in a serious way.

Second: 2009 Lamborghini Murciélago LP640

Highs: Baroque styling, handsome interior, stirring engine sound, superb steering, sure-footed handling.

Lows: Somewhat impractical, dated ergonomics, massive price tag.

The Verdict: If you've got it, flaunt it.

First: 2009 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1

Highs: Entertaining chassis, thunderous V-8 soundtrack, a sensible daily driver, the bargain of supercars.

Lows: Poor seats and lackluster interior, looks barely more special than a regular Corvette.

The Verdict: A 638-hp flip-off to those in the mainstream media who think GM doesn't build any good cars.
