Default Incredible Car

I can't believe it. The other day at a bookstore I was reading another Motor Trend and I see a long term test on a 300C SRT-8. Its just nuts. This 4200lb brick pulls a 0.9g on the friggin skidpad. I mean it can almost out handle exotics. They've been known to run mid high 12s all day long in 60* weather and top 173mph, stock! I know i've been on the 300 forums. But this car is really increadible. It has so much luxary to go with the performance. I said I'd never buy a Chrysler again. But in a couple years, unless GM does something, it will look real good to me. Am I just setting myself up for another Dodge Intrepid/ Dynasty/ Stratus disaster?

They've actually been slower than the 300SRT-8. I dunno, its the words of the 300 forum.

300C is on the backburner but after I get done with the 3800 scene 300c will be it I think

No no. 300CSRT-8 . The 300C is only as quick as my car. For only $5K more you can have a SRT-8 that runs 12s. THINK SRT-8.

Hard to beat German engineering.

I'm sure it will only get better.

I don't know about you guys but I would want to get a Grand Cherkoee SRT-8, under 5 seconds on wet or dry roads. Now, that'* unbeatable by any Bonnevilles. Dry, the heavily modded Bonnevilles may come close but come wet, the GC SRT-8 will smoke it and I read that the GC SRT-8 smokes ALL FOUR WHEELS up to second gear.

Fuel
