Dodge RAM SRT-10
From 2004 to 2006, the Ram SRT-10 was one of the craziest, most powerful and fastest pickups Dodge ever produced. That itself is a hard thing to say since Dodge always had some wild special versions of their trucks. But, just look at the specs. It had an 8.2-liter V10 engine delivering over 500 HP.
And even though it achieved a 0 to 60 time of fewer than five seconds the fuel economy was in the single digits. Dodge doesn’t make V10 engines anymore, but there is the Hellcat Hemi V8 with 707 or more HP. Ram Hellcat anyone? Yes, please.
Although they never intended the Grand Marquis to be a performance car, Mercury decided to turn it into one. And they did that by installing a highly tuned 4.6-liter V8 producing 302 HP, as well as a revised suspension, gearbox, and brakes. All those changes turned this sleepy and comfy sedan into a sharp muscle car.
The performance was decent for a big, heavy sedan with a 0 to 60 mph time of around seven seconds. Even though Mercury as a brand is gone, most people can’t forget how cool it would be to see the Marauder again, as a Ford with black paint and a thumping V8 under the hood.
These are the 30 discontinued cars most people would kill to see again going down the street. Which one would you buy if it returned? All these cars have the potential to make an exciting comeback to the car industry.
