Chrysler 300 SRT-8

Recommended Posts


PEBBLE BEACH, Calif., Aug. 13 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- With 85 more

horses under the hood, the momentum continues for the Chrysler 300 and its

legendary HEMI® engine.  Today, the Chrysler Group revealed the 425-

horsepower 2005 Chrysler 300C SRT-8, which arrives in showrooms next spring.

Preliminary performance targets for the 300C SRT-8 are 0-60 mph in the low

5-second range and quarter-mile time in the high 13-second range.

425 hp, 420 lb-ft of torque. The showcar version had a 5.7L whipple with a supercharger, but I guess the 6.1L made more sense for production. 5.9 sec 0-60 for the regular 300 with 5.7L and 345 hp, so low 5s seems reasonable/pessimistic, although 20" wheels are standard on the SRT-8 (a first for dubs?)

CTS-V is still my choice when it comes to the ultimate american sport sedan :P what other choices do you have?

but i cant wait for the STS-V..still hoping they will be able to hit higher HP numbers than the ones they have been putting out tot he press...425 for the V isnt enough to compete with the M5 or E55

Is it awesome to be a domestic car fan these days or what!? times are changing..and so are the cars...all for the better.

now if Chevy only had the balls to develop thier RWD impala anytime soon...

Yeh, I sold my '96 Impala SS in 2000, and boy do I miss that car! That car could RUN! My wife wrecked it and I figured it would never be the same, so I got rid of her...the car that is. :lol:

I told myself I'd find another one to replace her one day. We bought it when it was one year's old and drove it for 3 years and sold it for $2000 more than we paid for it...unreal! That car is still holding it's value very well, due to the limited production run it had.
