Re: SRT8 Monster Engine, Monster-ugly Styling

overall, not overly impressed... but I like it.

I am not sure what I was expecting, but it wasn't this. Maybe it was all the hype and now I feel let down. I dunno. It just seems that the the wk SRT8 is a great design and compliment to the standard wks. And, I can't say the same about the wk2 SRT8.

Maybe it will grow on me. I too was hoping for more of the SEMA look.

For now, me likey...
-The hood. And, it is so much better than the concept images with a hood scoop. Reminds me of a '95 Cobra Mustang.
-Engine & performance (obviously)
-Interior touches (wheel, paddle shifters, audio system, seats & even the CF)
-Rear valance
-Less chrome

Me dislikey...
-Wheels (which can be changed)
-Overly agressive front end. I like the LED/fog combo but I wonder if it would have looked better lower, like inplace of the standard fogs.

It's like the designers had the LEDs in mind, created the clay mock-up and minutes before the big unveiling to Chrysler brass looked in thier bag of tricks and said crap, we forgot to incorporate the LEDs & fogs. Quick, lets cut the bumper and stick them here.

But, hey who am I to criticize?

Will I run out to trade in my current 2011. Nope. Would I consider picking one up in a few years.... Hell yeah.

Re: SRT8 Monster Engine, Monster-ugly Styling

Like many, I like the overall effort Chrysler put into the SRT8. I thought Milous mentioned that runflats were to be replaced with non-runflats. Oh well.

I believe the option for all-season runflats is out there...or 3-season runflats.
Yeh...the wheels are not what I expected.
Real carbon fiber, nice..!
If you know someone that can unlock the speed limiter.....I suspect one will reach 180 MPH on the speedo.

Overall....very good job.
