Automotive manufacturers have studied the aerodynamic designs of fighter jets for years. Now, in the 21st century, we’re reveling in the ability to see the resulting automotive designs have a chance to visit the airstrip and compete against their winged counterparts. Whether they win or lose, it’s impressive, but not quite as impressive as this video.

In a Mar. 21 video uploaded to YouTube by Viperclub America, we see the renowned SRT Viper race from a complete stop to the finish line against an F-16 Viper Fighter Jet. But, rather than telling you the winner, let’s review the performance figures to give you a good guess.

The F-16 uses jet propulsion to slingshot itself into the air with up to 30,000 pounds of thrust, and reaches 50,000 feet in a heart wrenching one minute with a top speed of mach two. The SRT Viper, on the other hand, sprints from 0-60 mph in 3.0 seconds with its 640 hp and 600 lbs-ft of torque 8.4-Liter V10 powerhouse carrying it up to a top speed of 206 mph.

Now that we have some specifications on the table, make your bets and watch the video above.
