Chrysler 300 C SRT 8 Touring
The Chrysler 300 C is an interesting car. It is one of the last true American boxy-looking sedans with big V8 power and a chrome grille. It is also a successful model that has been on the market for almost 15 years. During that time, Chrysler produced numerous versions, but one is especially interesting on this list – the mighty SRT-8 Touring.
A competitor to the BMW M5 or Mercedes E-Class AMG, the Touring was the performance station wagon version of the 300C sedan. Equipped with a 6.1-liter V8 Hemi engine pumping out 425 HP and a glorious soundtrack through its twin tailpipes, the SRT-8 was a fast and capable long roof. The 0 to 60 mph sprint took around 4.9 seconds and top speeds were over 170 mph. Unfortunately for Chrysler, the recession that shocked the car industry in 2010 killed the SRT-8 Touring and lots of other performance models.
Fortunately for car enthusiasts looking for good deals, they can buy an SRT-8 for around $10,000 today, which is a steal. Car fans will get a classic American muscle wagon with all the modern luxury features. They also get timeless styling, a legendary Hemi V8 and 425 galloping horses at their disposal. Moreover, if you don’t like Chrysler’s design, you can always opt for the Dodge Magnum SRT8, which is basically the same car, but with a Dodge front end.
