Default 2006 Chrysler 300C SRT-8 .... look out.....

Did anyone notice the 1/4 mile on the new 300C SRT8 is 13.2ish?
They've got a 6.1L Hemi in those things.....

Dear god...... only our best have a chance of keeping up with those.... Rogue... I'm looking at you.
..... also I'm guessing they ran their 1/4 mile on street tires....

Um... just realized something... according to C&D, this SRT8 is faster on the 1/4 then our beloved 2005 GTO.

Probably a while, seems to be a lot of myth about the strength of their mechanical equipment.

I don't hear about as many Mopar tranny failures vs GM tranny failures, and the Hemi is so old and well established.

Sure is ugly tho

Still an ugly car in my opinion. Not worth being seen in that thing to go fast.

Again, my opinion...

It'* ugly.... but it'* fast......

I don't know how it is elsewhere.... but there are a TON of new 300'* on the road.
I have to look at each one closely to see if it'* a C or not..... and now... just when I didn't think I had to worry about a "C" anymore..... now I've gotta worry about an "SRT-8" badge...... damn it....

13.2 .... on street tires....... I don't care what it looks like... that'* impressive for a sedan.....

the C hemi'* have dual exhaust. thats the only difference between the 300, the 300 touring, and the C Hemi. popularity in my area is freakin ridiculous. seen a few with 20"* and wow, heck of a looking car
