2012 Chrysler 300 SRT8 - Photo by i r wil77
Getting right to it, the Chrysler 300 SRT8 has a huge Hemi under the hood. More than 450 horsepower horsepower and 465 pound-feet of torque connected to the rear wheels makes for a tire-smoking good time. It also makes for some pretty amazing performance; like 0-60 mph in less than five seconds and under thirteen second quarter mile times. Performance like this used to be born of modifications and aftermarket parts. Now Chrysler is giving it to you right out of the box. Even fuel economy is boosted. Do you remember the days when more horsepower meant lower mileage? Those days are past, now comfort and sophistication meet monster muscle and performance in the 300 SRT8, not surprisingly Chrysler has made them go delightfully hand in hand.
