2012 Chrysler 300 SRT8 Test Drive

Motor Trend takes a test drive and gives a review on the all new 2011 Chrysler’s 6.4-liter V-8-powered 300 SRT8.

Under the hood of the 2012 Chrysler 300 SRT8, 6.4-liter HEMI® V-8 with 465 horsepower, an improvement of 40 horsepower and 45 pound-feet over the previous 300 SRT8’s 6.1-liter unit. With the help of an active intake manifold and high-lift camshaft, the new engine produces more torque at lower rpm, and cam phasing optimizes power at higher rpms. Chrysler estimates the 300 SRT8 can click off 0-60 mph (0-100 kph) in the high four-second range and will top out at 175 mph (approx. 280 kph).

  1. It's amazing how he can talk so clearly and drive at that speed at the same time, without losing control of the car…. I'm not sure I could do that.

    That said, I'm driving one of Chrysler's MPV cars at the moment, so I don't think I need to worry about it.
