Jag XKR-S GT vs SRT Viper TA
542bhp Brit brawls with 631bhp of American muscle. But which will come out on top?

Heading back into LA, there's no question the Jag is the best compromise between road and track. But it's also the most compromised. Putting all that extra bodywork and decals on it just feels wrong. And despite all the great mechanical updates, the six-speed gearbox just can't cut it when you get to the track.
As for the TA, there is no question that this is the Viper to have. It beats you up on the road and demands your constant attention like a wayward child, but it's such a satisfying challenge, it's worth it. The cops will pull you over, give you tickets for imaginary speeds and suggest you are less than honest, but 30 seconds after arriving at your track, you (like me) won't care.
