► Chrysler 300 SRT8 (2012) on the track
The Street and Racing Technology (SRT) performance engineering team builds
upon the all-new 2011 Chrysler 300 sedan already executed for a world-class
luxury experience, to deliver Chrysler's most powerful and best handling
Performance numbers include 0-60 mph acceleration in the high 4-second
range; quarter mile in high 12-second range; 0-100-0 mph in less than 16
seconds, top speed of 175 mph and stopping power from 60-0 mph in 120 feet.
The return of the 300 SRT8 to the Chrysler lineup in 2012 evokes a strong
comparison to the original high-performance production car of its time --
the 1955 Chrysler 300. Known for simple, strong lines, excellent
engineering, high levels of luxury and outstanding performance with the
first modern American V-8 engine to produce 300 horsepower, the first
Chrysler 300 (C-300) was styled by Virgil Exner, who radically redesigned
the entire Chrysler line and created what they called "The Forward Look" in
1955. Without much chrome on the sides, his designs were simple, but
strong. Exner is credited with creating the illusion of fast, forward
Under the hood of the 2012 Chrysler 300 SRT8, the new 6.4-liter HEMI® V-8
makes its debut in the Chrysler brand product lineup delivering 470 horsepower (351 kW) and
470 (637 N•m) lb.-ft. of torque, up 45 horsepower and 50 lb.-ft.
over the 6.1-liter HEMI V-8 it replaces.
The improved torque output -- including an additional 80 lb.-ft. at 2,900
rpm -- allows for inspired standing starts and improved straight-line
performance while new, performance-tuned motor mounts improve idle
stability and ride control at any speed. An active intake manifold and
high-lift camshaft with cam phasing provides maximum low-end torque while
optimizing high-end power.
2013 Ford Taurus vs Chrysler 300 S AWD Mile High Mashup Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2013 Ford Taurus and the Chrysler 300 S both
have V-6 engines, both seat 5 passengers and both have all-wheel-drive.
They also both and recently redesigned big American family sedans. In fact
to call this video Mashup Review is a stretch as both cars compete directly
with each other. Perhaps the biggest difference between the two cars is
that the Chrysler has 4 more horsepower at 292 versus the
Ford's 288 HP. So the obvious question is which of these two cars is
better. Check out this video "Mashup" to find out.
2012 Chrysler 300C SRT-8 392 Start Up, Exhaust, and In Depth Tour
Hello and welcome to Saabkyle04! YouTube's largest collection of automotive
variety! In today's video, we will take an up close and personal in depth
look at the 2012 Chrysler 300C SRT-8. As with all the other new gen SRT-8
vehicles, it comes with the new 6.4L 392 cu/in v8 with 465 naturally

American luxury sedan for the modern age. The new 300 is packed with
luxury features and tech, as well as some unique features only to the SRT.
During this presentation, we will take a 1st person look at what the 300 is
all about beginning with the start up, performance data, fuel economy, the
occasional track data, and build quality. Also, I will teach you how to use
most of the interior and exterior features in a detailed fashion, that
before, you could only get from going to a dealership yourself! Throughout
the video, I will highlight key styling and unique differences about the
vehicle, any available options, and of course it would not be an enthusiast
car video without the good ole engine portion with rev and Exhaust note with interior and exterior
perspectives. A thorough tour/review of this car designed to give others a
greater overall appreciation of the vehicle.
