    Motor Trend should have used the Viper TA for their competition but they simply cannot seem to get their hands on another TA

    1:35.03 SLS AMG
    1:36.43 SRT Viper
    1:38.70 R8
    1:39.19 4s 911 carrera
    1:40.52 M6
    1:40.71 Aston Martin Vanquish
    1:40.81 F-Type Jaguar
    1:41.26 Cayman S
    1:42.39 E63 S amg Wagon
    1:46.60 Continetal GT
    1:49.30 Focus ST


    The SLS AMG is defiantly the fastest of the bunch of the Motor Trend's Best Car week. But when the ZR1 Corvette beat out the new Viper SRT, SRT replied with an SRT TA version of the car and that car gave the ZR1 a good run for its money.

    Now the ZR1 and Viper are very respecatable cars for the value and performance. But in all honesty if you're spending over 100k on a car price really shouldn't matter.

    But these cars run faster than the SLS amg. but still it's not the newer car "produced" within the twelve month category.

    I still believe SRT won't give them another TA.

    I honestly think Motor Trend cannot get a hold of a Viper TA to run in this years competition or run against any of the vehicles at all. It's also like the C7 corvette they were sent a show version and it could only do 12 miles an hour. It made the photo but it is not in the competition.
    @Sticky I tried to reply this on your SLS AMG Black series post but it wouldn't let me. So I posted here.

    There is a video of why what cars are in and out of the competition. Some they simply could not get some in time. As for the Viper, that is what they gave them. They asked for a TA or GTS. Benz flew the SLS Black in a on a cargo plane just for the competition.

    Were you posting on the article page from bimmerboost? You have to be on benzboost in that case.

    If you just change the article from bimmerboost to benzboost it will allow you to post as the article was posted on benzboost. Not even sure how you accessed it on bimmerboost.

    Actually what surprised me was the F-type. Down over 70hp from the M6 and is a porker as well.

    Only .29 slower than the M6. Well done Jaguar. Lets see what the coupe does next year.

    I watched Every Video once all the videos were published. Then did snip clip or what ever it is called to get the photos. The total lap times will be posted with September issue of motor trend.

    Just skim the video until you see the last straight and you'll get the lap times.
