Any Real, Live SRTs Out There Yet?

Life may about to be getting much better! Wife is now giving consideration to an SRT rather than a planned Overland, but wants to see it in the flesh and test drive it first. Thing is, I can't find any in regional dealer inventory, and wonder whether at this point the SRT is just an Elvis sighting except for media testers?

It's shown in the preliminary 2012 Build Your Own, so you'd think there would be at least a few in dealer lots by now. Anybody seen one yet or, barring that, heard when they should start coming in?

Re: Any Real, Live SRTs Out There Yet?

If you go over to the WK2 SRT8 section in this fine forum, you will read that no one has one yet. Apparently one of our forumites had his build this week, but none have been delivered. You will also be paying US$60k + for one, which seems to be upsetting the majority of the SRT8 fans.

Re: Any Real, Live SRTs Out There Yet?

no SRT's have been released and shipped YET.......

If you are close to Mass. there is a Jeepgarage event that the SRT tour will be attending with the new Jeep. Check out the SRt tour and find one in your area. They are letting attendees drive the vehicles.

I may need to visit. Danvers is just 30 mins south from me. I work from home, so sneaking out around 10am will be easy!

Thanks -- great info, although a schlep for us on an already hectic day to the closest (just outside Newark 9/8).

Dunno how I missed that -- thanks for the heads up, it's bookmarked now.

Re: Any Real, Live SRTs Out There Yet?

Got to drive a 2012 SRT8 WK2 today! Part of the SRT8 Tour near Boston today.

Due to poor weather conditions (drizzly), we only got to do straight line accelerations in a VERY short space.

Acceleration was quite remarkable, with ZERO tire slippage even on the slick surface. Brakes were equally competent...as we were driving straight toward a brick wall!!

Very happy I went today! Thanks Scottina06 for the heads-up!

Here are a few pics (not great - as light was leaving us on this rainy day).
