I pulled up behind the guy when I dropped of a video...he had an exhaust that sounded real mean. Anyway, I followed him through the parking lot and waited to enter the main road. As traffic cleared he darted out and immediately hit it. I followed him; however, as he was accelerating I was still sliding across 2 lanes, HAHA. (no one was around) Anyway, I immediately caught up...it was basically a neck and neck race. We began to reach speeds that I no longer felt comfortable driving at on that particular street so I slowed down. Caught up with him down the road and gave him the thumbs up.
Overall, I think the V was a little faster but not by much.

That's encouraging. Prior to purchasing my V I attempted to drive an SRT8 (300C) -just for comparison purposes- but couldn't find a dealer that was willing. They also were wanting $58K even thought the sticker stated $44K. Reminded me of the early PT cruiser days when they were asking upward of $30K.

The SRT-8 and 300C have different engines...

They are still called 300C SRT-8s even though they have the 6.2L in lieu of the 5.7L

Yeah I just wanted to be specific that it was the 300 model vs. the Magnum & Charger styles.

THE 6.1L IS RATED 425hp Available in AWD too.

THE 6.1L IS RATED 425hp Available in AWD too.Are you sure? I believe AWD is only available on the 300C, not the SRT-8.

Maybe I need to back up one step. I saw in the showroom a Dodge Magnum Hemi w/AWD. It may not have been the 6.1 but the 5.7.
