While the SRT-10 isn't nearly as
stunning as the earlier RT/10 or GTS
models, it remains true to Bob Lutz's
original concept: it is as close as you
can get to a road-course race car for
use on the street for less than six
figures. And while it isn't designed for
it, off-the-shelf quarter-mile times in
the 11's isn't too shabby, either.
The earth-twisting torque of the giant
V10 is the best feature, of course. The
SRT-10 brakes are also a huge
improvement over earlier models'
relatively overworked braking systems.
The SRT-10 deserves the clamshell hood
treatment of it's predecessors.
Maintenance (particularly trackside) is
greatly aided by the accessibility and,
if necessary, the almost instant-removal
design of the older clamshell hood. A
return to 18" tires would help, too.
