2020 Mustang Shelby GT500 vs. 2014 Dodge Viper TA – 60 to 160 MPH Street Pulls

November 28th, 2020

It’s time to hit the streets (of Mexico) again for some high-caliber roll racing action. Featured in this video is a 2014 Dodge SRT Viper TA taking on all comers on the interstate. The backdrop is a slightly overcast sunny afternoon on a (nearly) deserted stretch of highway south of the border. Hold on to your hat ‘cause this is about to get crazy!

The 2014 Viper TA (Track Attack) is an out-and-out track car designed for the pure driving enthusiast. Under the hood is a naturally aspirated (all-aluminum) 8.4-liter V10 engine capable of producing 640hp and 600 lb.-ft. of torque. This speedy serpent tips the scales at just a smidge over 3,300-pounds and it has a 6-speed manual transmission. According to Car and Driver Magazine, it can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in only 3.2-seconds, has a top speed of 193 mph (electronically controlled) and can turn a quarter-mile in 11.5-seconds. Other than the powertrain, everything about the TA version of the Viper is more capable than the stock model. Let’s see what this snake can do in a roll race with the baddest Mustang of all time.

Speaking of which; the 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 is the top of the heap when it comes to Mustang variants. Under the bonnet is a supercharged 5.2-liter V8 engine that can churn out 760hp, 625 lb.-ft. of torque, accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 3.5-seconds and turn the quarter-mile in 11-seconds flat. The GT500 outweighs the Viper TA at a curb weight of approximately 4,200-pounds.

When these two power houses hook-up on the interstate, pandemonium will ensue.
