Re: SRT8 Order Book is Open

132 SRT8 vehicles was the final Aussie count for the 2012 model year:

Adelaide 004
Brisbane 031
Fremantle 019
Melbourne 043
Sydney 035

All but about 8 have arrived in Australia or are enroute. The last 8 should ship from here soon.

Jeep started building 2013 SRT models for Australia on the first day of production (July 10th). At least 7 have been built so far...

Re: SRT8 Order Book is Open

Yeah, aware of that. But my comment was in relation to getting SIGNIFICANT production volume worthy of a model launch (as covered elsewhere in the thread). Several hundred would be a more desirable starting point than sub-1-per-dealer. Otherwise launch momentum is lost in even more backorders & drop-outs.

Would actually be AWESOME if we could get an update on any more shipments - Milous?? I see you are reading this as I type -Any comment? UPDATE - Just beat me! Thanks heaps. Any white in MY13 thus far? Or alt wheels/LEDs?

My assumption (certainly not 'knowledge') is that not many more have been built since back then? And hence these 60-70 will be spread amongst dealers for demo, press cars, staff cars etc. No doubt a few will go out to early sale, so I will be checking the build plate on mine, that's for sure UPDATE - There you go. Less than 2 per dealer & not enough to be considered a launch IF hundreds more under way.

Re: SRT8 Order Book is Open

^^^ I'll be keeping any eye on production volume and report back if the numbers start to jump. A good sign is that they started building them on day 1.

In the U.S., Bright White Clear Coat will be available on the AE special edition model only. I have not been able to confirm yet if Bright White will be available for SRT export models...

Re: SRT8 Order Book is Open

Thanks mate - Brilliant!! If they are waiting for MY13, then it's great they started building this week, but would result in arrivals pretty late Sept to even Oct maybe? Anyhoo, will watch this space eagerly. Cheers heaps again!

PS- If for the record you can again advise the MY13 changes (although elsewhere & minimal) it'd be sensational

Just read this again properly. "Enroute" can be a 6-8 week trip I believe (internal US -> ports -> water -> ports etc). So there could be likely less than 60-80 here. I reckon once all the MY12s arrive in the coming weeks we'll see an on-sale. Will still be interesting to see what happens with MY13 volume. They may also be held. Anyway, all pie in the sky for a bit longer.

Re: SRT8 Order Book is Open

I would be extremely surprised if all those MY12's are not yet here.
I understand there was a STR8 training/exhibition day held a few weeks ago for Dealers at Phillip Island.
Why Jeep Aust is holding onto these cars is a mystery.

Re: SRT8 Order Book is Open

I have been told the launch will be the 1st September, weird that it is a Saturday.
Apparently all the dealer cars are just waiting and only Jeep AU have any on the road.

Thanks Enforcer! That's what I was told as well. So if the launch is on the 1st, when will cars for the buyers be available?
