The stylish Chrysler 300C is already one of the most striking shapes on the road. Now fettled by the SRT division, the SRT-8 model gives it the bite to match it's bark.
The Hemi V8 is an aural delight, adding more than 85 bhp to the standard 300C. Couple this with great brakes and decent handling (for a 2 ton car!) and you have an American super-saloon that is almost a match for it's European rivals - only poor steering and a vague gearbox let it down.
But what the 300C is really all about is style. The SRT-8 is the most muscular yet with subtle body mods and fantastic 20 inch alloys. That you can get all this for under £40k (and far less in the USA) is nothing short of amazing.
