|Chrysler’s 300-series cars of the 1960s were large, luxurious vehicles with huge V8 engines, and also paragons of stylish speed in the era. The 300C SRT-8 aims to recreate this magic by combining the powerful 6.1-liter HEMI V8 with the 300C’s relatively advanced chassis, which makes for an entertaining driving experience. With 425 horsepower on tap, 0-60 times are low (under 5 seconds) and the quarter is demolished in the low 13s, stock. Of course, it doesn’t hurt that the 300C manages to capture the spirit and panache of the old 300-series cars while not seeming retro at all. The bold, distinctive grille, the high beltline and low roof, and the squared-off flanks don’t bother hiding the car’s bulk—instead, it flaunts it. And rightly so, as few modern American cars have the presence—or performance—of this very fast sedan.|
