O.K. GM. Stop & Think!
I just got the latest issue of C&D and focused my attention on two cars. The Caddilac STS Spec-V with its supercharged Northstar V8 pumpin out 440hp @ 6400rpm and 430ftlb @ 3600rpm. It traps the quarter mile 13.8 sec@101mph.
The second car, the Chrysler 300C SRT-8. 425hp@ 6200rmp & 420ftlb@ 4800rpm. Yup, its faster than the V trpping the quarter 13.4 sec. @ 105mph. The interiors seem about equal in quality with a edge to the Caddy.
Base price for the 300C SRT-8... $41,000.
The Caddy STS-V..... $75,000 !?!?!?!?
Hmmmm... $34,000 more for a car of vast similarities. C'mon GM, I really want to keep buying you're bada$$ cars in the future but they are to dang expensive. Whereas Chrysler has a very similar car thats in my price range. I might get in trouble for saying this but i'm going to anyways. The reason Chrysler can sell these nice cars for so low is all the repair money they have gotten from people over the years. I've gave Chrysler a few grand a few years ago due to...... dum dum dum.. transmission faliure.
I'm sure a little bit of that money went into that wicked SRT-8, eh?
