8. Chrysler 300C SRT-8
The Chrysler 300C is an interesting car. It is one of the last true American boxy-looking sedans with V8 power and a chrome grille. It was a successful model on the market for almost 15 years. During that time, Chrysler produced numerous variants and versions, but one is especially suited for this list: the mighty SRT-8.
A competitor to the BMW M5 or Mercedes E-Class AMG, the SRT-8 was the performance version of the 300C sedan. With a 6.1-liter V8 Hemi engine pumping out 425 HP and a glorious soundtrack through twin tailpipes, the SRT-8 is a fast, capable sedan. A 0 to 60 mph sprint takes around 4.9 seconds with top speeds over 170 mph.
Unfortunately for Chrysler, the recession that shocked the car industry in 2010 killed the SRT-8 and lots of other performance models. Fortunately for car enthusiasts looking for good deals, the SRT-8 costs around $10,000 today, which is a steal. You will get a classic American muscle sedan with all the modern luxury features. You will also get timeless styling, a legendary Hemi V8 engine and 425 galloping horses at your disposal.
