Default Corvette Z06 vs Dodge Viper vs Ford GT

Which of the 3 cars would you buy and why? We are considering the latest models from all the 3 companies.

For me it would be a tie between the viper and the gt..... the viper because we all know what can happen when u take it to a certain man named david hennessey! The Ford gt because its one of my favourite cars of all time.

This is one tough choice.....I guess I'd leave the Viper out because of it's relative lack of refinement (no doubting its character though), and the fact that the other two are just as fast by making less compromises. So the Viper is first to be knocked out......

It is so tough to choose between the GT and the Z06.....but.....

I guess I'd go for the Z06. But then again, I might cjhange my mind later, and regret opting for the 'vette in this poll, the decision is so tough.......

I choose the GT cuz its a different class on its own..but it depends on what I want the car for and what other cars I have..the choices would vary...

The GT is an awesome car, but not that good as a daily driver..the Z06 is sheer awsome...

believe me when I say the Z06 will eat the Viper alive, I have driven both extensively and there is just no comparison..like most who had seen these cars on their computer screens or in a mag, I thought viper was a beast...no doubt it is..but it is such a harsh car to drive that after 20-30 miles you just want to get out of it and may be sit in a nicer riding car..the Z06 on the other hand is soo much more GT when you are cruising and a beast to rip all beasts when you want to drive it hard...

so Z06 is a 11/10 car where as the Viper is a 7/10, the GT shouldnt have been included since the MSRP of Z06+Viper = GT but anyhow ..the GT is a great car..for overall performance and comfort and track capabilities I would take the Z06 but for sheer power and crazy looks it would have to be the GT..viper doesnt come in my garage until I know i cant afford a GT like car and then would keep the Z06 and the Viper convert, but then again thats the last resort..i would like to have the Z06 and the GT in my garage..

My cousin told me that Jeremy Clarkson's Ford GT broke down so many times that he has told Ford to take it back and refund him the money.

There was nothing mechanically or electrically wrong in Clarkson's car. It was the screwed up immopbiliser systems and the poor tracker system.
