Chrysler 300 SRT8 Spec, Review, Photos. Performance wise, the new 6.4-liter HEMI V-8 makes its debut in the Chrysler brand product lineup delivering an estimated 465 horsepower and 465 lb.-ft. of torque, up 40 horsepower and 45 lb.-ft. over the 6.1-liter HEMI V-8 it replaces.

“Projected 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,” Chrysler says, while adding that specific fuel economy numbers will be announced closer to the vehicle introduction.

Standard steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters join the standard Auto Stick on the floor console. Both are mated to the proven five-speed automatic transmission.

New for 2012 is an Adaptive Damping Suspension (ADS) system that is tuned specifically for the Chrysler 300 SRT8, as well as new seven-spoke, 20-inch lightweight forged aluminum wheels and available three- or four-season tires.

Interior highlights include an all-new leather-wrapped, heated, SRT-exclusive steering wheel that features a unique rim section with a flattened bottom surface showing the SRT logo. In addition, real carbon fiber interior trim pieces are integrated into the new instrument panel, door spears and shifter bezel and new racing style brake and gas pedal pads are standard.

Also new for 2012 is the available SRT performance sound system from Harman Kardon, a 900-watt, 19-speaker system.
