So, you want a modern-day muscle car dripping in street cred. With 350kW – or close enough. For $60k, tops.
The Chrysler 300 SRT8 Core is an awesome car – no question about that. The only thing it doesn’t do is blend in, under the radar. It actually held the door open when the handed out ‘subtlety’.
It’s a brilliant execution of a modern-day muscle car. The 300’s got the hot rod style roof chop, superlative driveline performance. Just shy of 350kW. It’s a muscle car – brain bending engine outputs on a more or less beer budget – and just enough grip to get you into trouble. Muscle cars are like that – and this is the latest in a long line of that grand tradition.
It’s beyond adequate – in every respect. You could do a drug deal in this car, and then valet it at a five-star hotel.
