CHECK OUT THE VIPER AC-R ARTICLE:
We're about to make our first high-speed run in the still-black 2008 Dodge Viper ACR when the old guy pulls up to our makeshift pit. He looks exactly like the guy you'd expect to meet in the middle of the Bonneville Salt Flats, like a worn-out Hank Williams, Jr.
Over the deafening cackle of his Cummins-powered diesel pickup, he yells, "What's you boys doin'?"
"We're going to make a few runs in this Viper here."
"Yeah, how fast will she run?"
"We don't really know. Maybe 190 or so."
By the expression on his face, it's obvious ol' Hank has figured out that we have no idea what we're doin'. He knows we're just a bunch of yahoos with a fast car. He takes a good long look at the big winged Viper, then he shuts off the truck's engine so we can hear him better.
"When you're going fast, the slightest gust of wind can flip you," he says. "That's why we only ran early in the morning when the air was calm."
We look up at the mid-afternoon sun and wonder what we've gotten ourselves into.
"And make sure you don't run out of room," he continues. "You think you have all the space in the world, then Floating Mountain is suddenly right in your face. I remember when I went for 300 mph back in 1978; my chutes didn't open and I almost didn't get her stopped." He runs his fingers through a white beard. "Didn't make 300 either," he adds. "Only 280."
Great. We thought this Bonneville thing was as easy as holding our foot down until the speedometer stopped moving. Now Mr. Monday Night has us imagining our $100,000 Viper sliding across the Utah desert on its roof.

2007 Mercedes-Benz CLK63 AMG Black Series vs. 2007 BMW M6
If the 2007 Mercedes-Benz CLK63 AMG Black Series and 2007 BMW M6 could talk
trash, things would get ugly in a hurry.
The big-bore Benz would snort something about its 465 pound-feet of grunt,
the kind of power that would leave the Bimmer's flame-surfaced sheet metal
in a smoldering pile on the road. The high-strung M6 would make a remark
about the Benz's boy-racer fender flares, silly bodywork vents and
decidedly uncivilized Exhaust note.

For full article:
"Brute strength and awkwardness" is a phrase that we heard a lot while
growing up at Dad's race shop. He used it to describe a powerful yet
ill-handling machine; or, more often, the driving technique of a hero
driver attempting to cope with one. Both definitions rattled around in our
brain as we traveled to Virginia International Raceway (VIR) to drive the
2008 Dodge Viper SRT-10.
