How much longer will Chrysler’s original gangsta sedan and only actual car remain in production? Maybe a few more years and meanwhile, the USP of the SRT8 version of the Chrysler 300C is that it offers similar performance to the BMW M5 and Mercedes E63 AMG, but with a big saving.
A 6.4-litre Hemi V8 with 470bhp powers the car and it now features a fuel-saving mode that allows it to cruise using just four cylinders, making it 21 per cent less thirsty than the previous 300C SRT8 despite having an extra 45bhpand 50lb ft. New engine mounts make it smoother too and tweaks to the camshaft and cam phasing have produced a broader spread of torque as well. Adaptive damping comes with auto and sport modes. Electric power steering is out and old-fashioned hydraulic system is back. Behind the mighty seven-spoke alloys are big ventilated discs with four-pot Brembo calipers.
Standard SRT8 features include leather upholstery, ventilated seats, UConnect multimedia system with touchscreen, 19 Harmon Kardon speakers, dual-pane panoramic sunroof, 20-inch wheels, rear spoiler and more, along with a unique exterior kit. Standard safety features include front, side, knee and curtain airbags, ABS, stability control, tyre pressure monitor, adaptive cruise control with auto braking, lane departure warning, blind spot monitor, cross path detection and forward collision warning.
