Cool Nurburgring split screen between Viper ACR and Corvette ZR1

Viper ACR vs. Corvette ZR1 at the Nürburgring

Running the Nürburgring is now recognized planet-wide as the standard measure of sports car studliness. And it seems that every manufacturer that puts its latest super-swoopy screamer on that track can't resist bringing a video camera along on the run.

YouTube user "oppositelocksmith" grabbed onboard video of the new 2009 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 running the 'Ring, synchronized it with similar video of the 2008 Dodge Viper SRT10 ACR doing the same thing, mashed the two together in a split screen and effectively created a race where none had occurred.

And watching these two beasts scream around Germany's legendary track is so mesmerizing that my pupils have been fully dilated for a week.

Here's another view of the Viper's run from a camera bolted outside the beast along its flanks — along with metered readouts for lateral acceleration and downforce. Way too cool.
