Chrysler 300C SRT8

From Chrysler press: The 2009 Chrysler 300C SRT8 offers consumers the renowned SRT performance: 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 iconic, 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. 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. For 2009, the Electronic Stability Program (ESP) has been SRT-tuned and brake knockback mitigation software was added to the ABS system. The system senses lateral acceleration and effectively primes the system in anticipation of the next brake application.

Benchmark braking 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. The result is 60 – 0 mph braking performance of approximately 110 feet. The SRT-exclusive braking system includes brake knockback mitigation software for even better track response. The system senses lateral acceleration and effectively primes the system in anticipation for the next brake application.
