    and yet ferraris always tend to loose against the viper when compared.

    the old gt40 can beat a f50.

    and yes the new gt40 will beat the viper....mid 3's for this car <IMG SRC="http://www.supercars.net/servlets/cMsg/html/emoticons/smile.gif"><!-- Signature -->

    Frank is right, the GT-40 has a longer , more rich history, besides the viper is not even worthy enough to be compared to a ledgend.<!-- Signature -->

    The GT40 would not just kill the viper it would also make it hang its head in shame as it passes it by and keeps gaining car lengths between its self and that thing you call a car. The GT40 has an engine that is in the back that puts more traction to the ground because more of the weight is on the back tires. The vipers don't have rear-engine layouts with makes them much more susceptible to burn outs.
    Next thing is my uncle works for ford and they are putting the car into production but Ford is not the one that is going to build them. It’s a race between Saleen and RUF that is going to build them. The GT40 would take too much time out of Fords production line.
    Next the car is going to be price around $100,000-125,00 so not only are they aiming at beating vipers the also are aiming at beating Ferrari's. I know it sounds like i am just typing this stuff down but if you guys read Auto week or Motortrend you might learn a thing or two. So before you go a bash on a car that you know nothing about just think about what you’re going to type before you make yourself sound like an idiot

    Big 3 pump out muscle cars
    Ford to launch SVT Focus, GT40; all see profit in new race

    DETROIT -- John Coletti, who engineers hot rods for Ford Motor Co., believes a new era of muscle cars is dawning in Detroit.
    Not since the 1960s, Coletti said, have Detroit's automakers paid so much attention to high performance vehicles, which not only reap high profits but also can burnish a car maker's image.
    Ford's Special Vehicle Team -- now in its 10th year -- recently began turning a profit, just sold its 100,000th vehicle and is now launching the new SVT Focus.
    The automaker has also announced plans to build a 500-horsepower GT40 sports car based on the 1960s-era endurance racer of the same name.
    And General Motors Corp. and DaimlerChrysler AG are building up their own high-performance studios, called Special Vehicle Group and Performance Vehicle Operations respectively. All three Detroit automakers will have to compete with Mercedes-Benz' AMG division and BMW's popular high-performance M line.
    The sporty brands promise to draw enthusiasts and deliver fat profits for automakers.
    "We are in the middle of a high-performance vehicle renaissance," Coletti said. "Quite frankly, it's one that I never thought we would see again following the muscle car era of the 1960s."
    Coletti, head of Ford SVT and a quintessential gearhead, said in a speech Thursday to the Automotive Press Association that Ford welcomed the new competition.
    "It's about time they've decided to jump into the most exciting part of the automotive business," he said.
    In January, DaimlerChrysler showed off its new Dodge Ram SRT-10, powered by the same V-10 engine in the 2003 Dodge Viper SRT-10 sports car. The truck is slated to go into production next year. It goes from zero to 60 mph in 5 seconds and has a top speed of 150 mph.
    "It's the Mt. Everest of pickup trucks," said Chrysler Chief Operating Officer Wolfgang Bernhard.
    Performance Vehicle Operations, known as PVO, combines Chrysler's motorsports team with the specialty vehicle engineers responsible for such vehicles as the Viper and Chrysler Prowler.
    Coletti, who is known to engage in a little verbal engine revving, said he took exception to Chrysler executives who claim the SRT-10 would replace Ford's F-150 Lightning as the top performance pickup.
    "While you're trying to dethrone the Lightning," Coletti said. "the GT40 will reduce your Viper to a status somewhere between a garter snake and an earthworm."
    Sounds like the race is on.

  6. this thing just doesn't do da job as well as a viper would
     
  7. Re: can't beat da viper!

    Do you actually think that if ford or chevy (or any other car company for that matter) wanted to they couldn't make something faster and better than a viper?
     
  8. Re: can't beat da viper!

    or even have a stupid looking 8 litre engine??? (ok i admit though it sounds sweet, but realistically, not a very economical machine)<!-- Signature -->
     
  9. Re: can't beat da viper!

    it shure as hell could beat the viper, more hp, better aerodynamicks, and its probably lighter to+ it looks better!!!!!!!!
     
  10. Re: can't beat da viper!

    I think it should have been stated "it can't beat the 2003 viper" To educate some of you the 03 viper has 500hp 500lb-ft torque and 505 ci, thats 8.3L now! But I don't think that it should be said that this can't beat a viper (and I'm a Viperlover) because we haven't seen performance numbers from either yet.
     
  11. Re: can't beat da viper!

    true
    I'm inclined to think that this will beat the Viper in general road course terms. This is assuming:
    It's a MR
    It's modern construction will be very light
    No horrible bugs inherent in a new desighn
    The suspension puts the power to the tarmac well
    It gets built at a comparable price to the Viper (Otherwise it can't compete in one of the most remarkable catagories of the Viper, and thats value.)

    I'll say one thing, this could be the bain of all the NSX fanatics out there if it is a MR. <!-- Signature -->

  14. Re: can't beat da viper!

    you stupid assholes actually think a viper can even be compared to a gt-40? I am gonna laugh my head off when this thing gets road tested and just rips the shit out of a viper
     
  15. truly and unworthy advisary ..

    the viper .. being a derivative of a Daytona coupe,
    is not in the same class as a GT40 .. considering that:

    A)vipers never trounced ferrari in its wake at lemans
    [though they did smack up the porsches in their hayday,
    but so did corvette .. so] matter of factly the only
    real competitors were porsche .. and even then your
    lookin at a mean flat six vs a brandspanking new v10
    in the GT class .. big woop

    B)GT40 did something for Ford, if im not mistaken, that no
    other car company has been able to do .. win LeMans in
    four consecutive years ..

    all in all .. i think to compare a viper to this majestic
    piece of racing history .. you are borderline loco ..

    but i mean .. if to each his own, then ill take the GT40
    over most other 500+hp vehicles anyday ..

  16. Re: can't beat da viper!

    beats the viper anytime,anywhere
    the gt40 is a legend for bout 30 years, the viper ins't even a legend
    I don't hate vipers,
    but I also don't compare them to a gt40
     
  17. Re: can't beat da viper!

    Ya know what guys this car could so kick viper ass and as said before thiss car isn't even in the same class as the viper...........If the GT40 concept and the viper went head to head on a speedway such as Laguna Seca the GT40 would make laps around the Viper. Plus there is a massive difference in weight between the 2 cars....the viper is 3446lbs and the GT40's made of aluminum composite body and an all aluminum V-8 so that cuts the weight down a hell of alot. The Viper wouldn't have a chance against this!!!!
     
  18. Re: can't beat da viper!

    Look Ford won LM with the GT40 when the cars winning LM actually looked like this. Have any of you actually seen what they look like now? No chance....sorry Ford. Who knows if Vipers could actually beat this...Racing will tell not some teenagers on a Supercars.net forum. Have any of you heard of the Viper-Ferrari wars?? WHO WINS IN THE TOP THREE PLACES EVERY YEAR?????????????????????????? VVVVVVVVVIIIIIIIIIIIIPPPPPPPPPPPPPPEEEEEEEEEERRRRRRRRRRSSSSSSSSS!!! Put this up against a tuned Viper that is made with up-to-date aero., body, turbos (would be fair cause this has 'em), etc. Now that would be a hell of a race!!! Best of America vs. Best of America :). I'm a Viper fan so I'm gonna go for Viper even if Dodge did f*** it up with the 03 model (they even changed the symbol!!)....It will be interesting to see how well this new Ford fairs in the world of racing. Who gives a f*** as long as they give America the wins that Viper has given us!!!

    The GT-40 of the 1960's topped out at close to 220 mph. It is the ultimate road machine produced by Ford and Shelby. It is obvious that you are not familiar with the history of this great car; therefore, don't say stupid things! Viper wouldn't stand a chance!

    Hey uh Gearjammer you want a cookie or something. You don't see me bad mouthin the viper.
     
  21. Re: can't beat da viper!

    the viper is a road car,you see em on da streets. i dont think its fair to compare it to this,which is clearly a lemans racer an ya dont see to omany of these floatin around the parkin lots of the cities (plus im aware that there is a modded viper used for lemans... the team oreca viper, and ya dont see any of those around on the streets)<!-- Signature -->
