ReviewWhile 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.
Best FeaturesThe 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.
Worst FeaturesThe 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.
