Claremore Driveway: Dodge Charger SRT8

photo copy 3“It wouldn’t be surprising for the SRT8 to show up wearing an American flag like a cape. With an eagle at the helm, smoke pouring out the rear wheel well, with fireworks exploding overhead.” This is the quote in Motor Trend magazine after testing this American supercar.  470 horsepower, 470 pounds of torque. That’s an awful lot.

Car and Driver magazine tests it favorably head to head with a $95,000 Mercedes-Benz E63.

The test results are stunning. 0-60 in 4.3 seconds, standing quarter mile in 12.8 seconds. Top speed of 175 mph. This from a showroom stock Dodge.

Yahoo! Boy, this thing is fun! It’s actually quite a bit faster than our 1960’s-era muscle cars and it does it a lot more quietly.

Larry Melton, who has had several SRT cars in his driveway, says there’s only one big drawback to theses cars.

Once you’ve had one of these, there’s nowhere to go but down.
