2006 Dodge Charger SRT-8 4dr Sedan (6.1L 8cyl 5A)
It's hard to believe that only a few short years ago Chrysler did not even offer a V8 in a car, much less a rear drive one. They've more than made up for it. With a wife and two kids, this is a perfect choice for a family man's muscle car. Not only is it the cheapest of the SRT8's, it is also the coolest looking, with it's hood scoop and rear spoiler. The Magnum and 300C SRT8's look too much like the regular Hemi's to me.
Excessive horsepower and torque. Charger SRT8 exclusive hood scoop and rear wing spoiler makes it instantly recognizable as an SRT8. Roominess. Kicker audio system. Dash design.Cool Charger exterior design that looks like nothing else on the road. Recaro-like bucket seats.
Gas mileage (of course). Excessive brake dust on wheels. Front fascia too low to ground. It is in constant peril from curbs and dips (but looks cool). Too large rear window cooks rear passengers in summer sun.
