The clever folks over at Gizmodo TV partnered with Jalopnik and Hennessey Performance Engineering lead Ffbricator Jason Geigley to test out an interesting theory. They contend that a potato gun will travel at least as fast as a new SRT Viper, and possibly even faster.
It seems unlikely that a potato could make such good time, but if you add Geigley's skillfully crafted potato gun to the equation, who knows?
To make things even more entertaining, they added a third variable in the form of a 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT just to see how it compares to the potato and the Dodge. You'll have to check out the video for yourself to see which of the three competitors ends up in the lead.
