I have to admit, going from a highpower two seater to this monster was quite a shock. I really enjoy getting out of a vehicle unwrinkled. I have an incredible amount of raw horsepower under the hood. I mean those fancy two seat cars are fun but no real dignity or comfort climbing in and out of one. The SRT8 not only has comfort and ease of handling but an incredible amount of space in the interior. Way to old these days to entertain in the back seat but this baby could hold an entire salesman convention party. We're talking more room in the front seat of the 300 than a Range Rover front seat.
Love those chirping tires when using the 5 speed shifting option. Enough power to outrun most sport cars out there. Too bad they probably will never allow a motor this big to go in a passenger vehicle again.
A little mushy on the suspension side. Really heavy vehicle but well worth the electronic toys that add the extra pounds. The 6.1 engine more than compensates for weight. Probably an electronic option or magic button to stiffen the suspension for Freeway driving.
