And I don't think you are talking about the same car. They are talking about the old 300M, not the new 300C.

I'm pretty sure that a 300C with the 345 hp Hemi would eat your car.

I totally totally love the 2002-04 300M Special.

I broke traction easily on a test drive in an 03 M Special on 18" Michelin F1'* (?), the 255HP overhead cam V6 (3.5) is plenty powerful enough. The manumatic shifter is gimmicky but was found to up the fun factor. I think the styling is great and the sound of the dual exhaust mimics the G35 and FX series by Infiniti.

I would take a 300M Special over many cars, and almost did, but found the trade in value to low on my Aurora, and the sticker price to high on the loaded 300M Special.

Not as quick as the Aurora though. First impressions are decieving, though. I guarentee it would die under my right foot.

Probably....but I don't drive that fast a lot anyways. I love the look of the car. The goal is to have one in the next little while, possibly once a few debts are lifted.

Just like this one...



Fast or not, I would hit this over and over like an expensive Vegas hooker
