2013 Special Edition Jeep SRT8

Anyone know anything about this? Special additions to me usually mean special graphics, wheels, blacked out trim, super groovy stitching, "special" logos and other baubles and bolt-ons that do nothing for performance. I guess I would be pretty dissapointed if this is the direction the SRT group is headed.

I figure the power increase comes in 2014 with the SP model...so not real clear on the focus of an "SE" model late this summer/fall.

Any ideas?

On another note - Giles, why not run the new Viper and a Jeep SRT8 in the Rolex 24hr in Daytona next year...? Sure the Viper is a no brainer.... but a Jeep would really shake up the GT world...just one race not the whole series. Race what you sell, sell what you race. It is SRT right? C'mon Ralphie you know you want too...

Boooo....Because special edition (ie ACR) isn't just cosmetic.

Hmmmm....not so sure!
Might create more understeer with the added weight up front

Looks great otherwise....
