2013 SRT Viper vs 2014 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Black Series! - Head 2 Head Ep. 36
On this episode of Head 2 Head, Motor Trend’s Jonny Lieberman pits two members of the “more than 600 horsepower club” against each other – the 2013 SRT Viper & the 2014 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Black Series. It’s a three-bout heavyweight match that begins with real world canyon carving, moves on to an all-out quarter mile drag race, and then finishes with blistering hot laps around Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca with hot shoe Randy Pobst.

Despite a huge gap in price, both of these long-nosed, front-engine, RWD, two-seat brawlers represent significant revisions of their wild predecessors. Will good old fashion American muscle beat out German Engineering? Join us as we find out.

  1. Dual clutch dual clutch dual clutch dual clutch dual clutch dual clutch makes a huuuuuge difference on the track. Give the manual a break.

  2. If I could only go back in time and say Dodge has the Challenger Hellcat. It fits the exact description Johnny describes in the beginning, lol.

  3. If only Dodge gave the Viper a Dual Clutch Transmission, fuck me but it would put so many Porsche GT3RS owners to shame.

  4. $185,000 price difference lolol should have compared an acr then
    But regardless the amg was a little faster all the way around but viper is much more powerful, has a manual still fast af idk buy a house and a viper or buy an amg lol

  5. Both Amazing cars.

    However a fair test would have been the Viper ACR vs the SLS Black. A standard SLS should have been used against a standard Viper.

  6. These guys are always in amazing cars. It must be so hard to go back to daily drivers or entry level sports cars after that. They must find themselves buying bigger and better just to feed that appetite or the numbness they develop to basic performance after driving all these super cars.
