We've already gone over the <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/2012/12/17/2013-chevrolet-corvette-zr1-sets-lap-record-at-laguna-seca-beat/">article and amazing photographs</a> of this epic all-American battle, and now, MT has provided a video of the deed in its latest "Head 2 Head" installment.<br /><br />As we've already reported, not only did the 'Vette come out victorious when it came to lapping Laguna Seca, but it also set a new track record for a production car with a time of 1:33.70 beating the previous time by 0.2 seconds and beating the Viper by more than two seconds. In straight-line performance, both cars ran an identical 11.4 seconds in a quarter mile sprint. In the video, MT's drivers point out that the ZR1 has better braking and cornering on the track while the Viper's raw power and rough ride were mentioned on multiple occasions. One of the interesting notes is that the video points out the "deafening" cabin noise and "rock-hard" seats in the Viper, but SRT responded by saying both issues will be fixed by the time the car goes on sale.<br /><br /><a href="/2013/01/17/motor-trend-pits-srt-viper-against-chevy-corvette-zr1/#continued">Scroll down</a> to watch the whole video showing both the Viper and the 'Vette tackle one of the toughest tracks in the country.<p><a href="http://www.autoblog.com/2013/01/17/motor-trend-pits-srt-viper-against-chevy-corvette-zr1/" rel="bookmark">Continue reading <em><i>Motor Trend</i> pits SRT Viper against Chevy Corvette ZR1</em></a></p><p style="padding:5px;background:#ddd;border:1px solid #ccc;clear:both;"><a href="http://www.autoblog.com/2013/01/17/motor-trend-pits-srt-viper-against-chevy-corvette-zr1/"><i>Motor Trend</i> pits SRT Viper against Chevy Corvette ZR1</a> originally appeared on <a href="http://www.autoblog.com">Autoblog</a> on Thu, 17 Jan 2013 20:00:00 EST.
