The F-16’s official name is the Fighting Falcon, but its pilots more commonly call it Viper. It generates nearly 30,000 pounds of thrust and is capable of a top speed of Mach 2 (about 1,320 mph at altitude). It can fight beyond 50,000 feet, and climb at 50,000 feet per minute. It’s a seriously nasty piece of war machinery.

But is it a match for the SRT Viper? Rated at 640 horsepower and 600 pound-feet of torque, the 8.4-liter V-10 screams as it pushes the rear wheels to a top speed of 206 mph.

Fortunately for the SRT Viper, this isn’t a top-speed run, but an acceleration test. Watch the video to see which one takes the checkered flag.
