– The streets could be your playground. Be the bully. – Dodge Viper
It is a car that is extreme in every sense of the word and does not deny it at all. The SRT 8.3 V10 unfortunately first reminds you of the latest model Dyson, but no, this is still a real car. The wide hips, the enormously long nose and the short rear immediately reveal that this is not an average American. The driving experience is no different than brutal. Thanks to the clutch you can skip leg day from now on and feel like a winner every time you arrive. Because what can this thing be unforgivable; in case of wrong clutching, it doesn’t stall, it re-asphalts the street. Sorry neighbour!
Ours is from the third generation. His chassis didn’t change much technically, but he got a bit more poison in his thunder. They also noticed that it got pretty scary at higher speeds without thinking of aerodynamics, so thanks to the new bottom diffuser you will have an average American at high speed; 122 kilos! And of course, the dashboard and buttons are made of the kind of plastic that we wouldn’t make our lunchbox out of. But is that what it is all about? And more importantly, does it detract from the experience? Absolutely not. The essence is there and that’s what counts!
Ours is an official EU-delivered version, recognisable by the exhausts pulled through to the back. We would build it back to the side-pipes, but who are we! With its relatively low mileage, dealer maintained history and warm enthusiast’s nest past, this is one to cherish. Unfortunately after 27 years already it became history thanks to Greta. We think it is an absolute Cool Classic that’s living the Hemi dream!
Grab life by the horns.
Will we see you soon?
