The engine is fully enhanced to produce 425 hp and 420 lb ft of torque. The standard 5.7 liter Hemi V8 is updated to a 6.1 liter version. This is much sportier because of the size which is ideal for the high revolution. The five speed automatic transmission is modified as well which is the best partner for the engine. If you put the car in a full throttle then feel the explosive boom from its exhaust. When you go as much as 70 mph, you don’t hear the engine but you can hear the wind rushing and the hum of the tires.

Exterior

Interior

The interior of the 300c SRT8 is not the traditional American car. It is filled with rectangle elements that are complemented with silver and faux chrome. The latest model was redone with upgraded materials. The synthetic suede made up the seats and the door panel. The surfaces are all soft but don’t look like it. The interior fail to complement its interior due to the fact that everything is generic. Too bad it doesn’t live up with the boldness of the interior. The power blue light is a good choice that can save the interior from the blackness of the bin. It is not bad at all but it is just boring.
