► 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.
► 2012 Dodge Charger SRT8 on the track
New for the 2012 Charger SRT8 is the 470 horsepower 6.4-litre HEMI®
V8 that features 45 more horsepower and 50 more
lb.-ft. of torque across a significantly wider rpm range, new Exhaust system technology for improved fuel
efficiency, along with new paddle shift technology and adaptive damping
suspension for optimal driver control.
Performance numbers for the 2012 Dodge Charger SRT8 include 0-96 km/h (0-60
mph) acceleration in the high 4-second range; quarter mile in the high
12-second range; 0-160-0 km/h (0-100-0 mph) in less than 16 seconds; top
speed of 282 km/h (175 mph) and stopping power from 96-0 km/h (60-0 mph) in
37metres (120 feet).
Under the hood, the new 6.4- litre HEMI® V8 delivers more horsepower and torque than
the 6.1-litre HEMI V8 it replaces -- up 11 per cent to 470 horsepower (351 kW) and up
12 per cent to 470 (637 N•m) lb.-ft. of torque.
► Lexus LF-LC 2+2 Sport Concept Hybrid
Lexus unveiled a new design concept for a hybrid 2+2 sport coupe at the
North American International Auto Show. Showcasing the future design
direction for Lexus with an emphasis on a driver-focused vehicle, the LF-LC
concept will be at the Lexus display through January 22.
The LF-LC displays the new Lexus design language in its bold interpretation
of the signature Lexus spindle grille and rear architecture. Sumptuous
curves blend smoothly into dynamic angles, creating an inviting display of
lines, shadows and corners.
Framed by a deep aluminum surround, the mesh pattern of the spindle grille
takes 3D sculpture form, and functional air intakes in the bottom corners
of the grille show the fusion of distinctive style and engineering
Daytime running lights are shaped like an "L" while the vertical fog lamps
utilize a fading dot matrix pattern to suggest a sense of movement.
The front-engine, rear-wheel drive LF-LC features Advanced Lexus Hybrid
Drive, delivering both driving performance and fuel efficiency.

First Drive review: Is the 2012 Dodge Charger SRT8 a budget BMW M5?
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2012 Dodge Charger SRT8 will take you and
your family around the race track at 175 miles an hour. That's because 6.4L
Hemi V8 is good for 465HP and 465 pound feet of torque. That's a boatload
of power. But how does the fastest ever Charger compare to cars like the
BMW M5 and the Cadillac CTS-V sedan. Check out the video and find out as we
take the Charger for a first drive review.
2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 392 Burnout
Yes, it can be done by shutting down the front end. I don't believe that
just anyone can do it though. After some hot laps on the track, these tires
were good for nothing more than what you are looking at. This is from a
launch of 2012 SRT8 lineup at Willow Springs.

After some time on the track, the only thing these tires were good for is
what you are looking at. This was at a launch of 2012 SRT8 lineup at Willow

Charger SRT8 2012 vs. Challenger 392 2011
Very new charger coming to our special event H.P.T.3 (Hemi Performance Team
3rd gathering). we thought it is the best time to try it out !! This is the
first charger 2012 ever to race in Saudi Arabia. Impressive for a new
engine to give such a performance against a slightly moded challenger 392.
