Chrysler 300C SRT8

From Chrysler press: The 2008 Chrysler 300C SRT8 is a complete package for the customer who wants awesome performance in a premium sedan – 0-60 mph in the low five-second range, 0-100-0 mph in under 17 seconds, 0.89 g on the skid pad – in an award-winning sedan loaded with comfort and style.

The Chrysler 300C SRT8’s 425-horsepower (317 kW), normally aspirated, 6.1-liter HEMI produces 420 lb.-ft. (569 N•m) of torque — a higher level of HEMI performance, with 85 additional horsepower (25 percent more than the 5.7-liter HEMI). The HEMI power is channeled through a five-speed automatic transmission with specially calibrated, driver-selectable Auto Stick, which offers fully automatic or manual shifting selection.

Chassis setup for the Chrysler 300C SRT8 is aimed at all-around performance, including SRT-tuned dampers, specially tailored spring rates and suspension bushings, and large-diameter anti-sway bars. Revised front and rear suspension knuckles contribute to a ride height that’s lowered one-half inch from the Chrysler 300C. In addition, the Electronic Stability Program (ESP) has been tuned for the 2008 Chrysler 300C SRT8’s new standard Adaptive Cruise Control.

The stopping performance results from a four-wheel, disc-brake system featuring performance calipers developed by Brembo, each equipped with four pistons for even clamping. Up front, the Chrysler 300C SRT8 has 360 mm x 32 mm vented rotors, and 350 mm x 28 mm vented rotors in the rear.
