Dodge may be taking its Viper ACR out racing this summer, but we doubt the company plans on pitting it head-to-head against the likes of a Koenigsegg CCXR. Luckily, the speed freaks at Dragtimes.info grabbed both, placed them on a drag strip, and let ‘em rip.
We know what you’re thinking: An SRT10 packs 600 hp, and a CCXR nearly 1064. If that weren’t enough, the Koenigsegg weighs nearly 632 pounds less. How is this remotely fair? Well, the Viper in question does have a Paxton supercharger bolted to its 8.4-liter V-10, which theoretically gives the car close to 750 hp.
Surprisingly, this race isn’t exactly the blowout you’d expect it to be. In fact, the Viper takes an early lead after a squirrely launch — but does it retain that position until the very end? Watch the clip below to find out.
