    Well sign me onto the Sith roster and call me Anakin.

    I want one REAL bad!

    It's rumored that the Supercharger won't make it to production (maybe a Mopar option) but that AWD could be an option. A V6 would likely be the base engine.

    Sort-of reminds me of the chopped top roadsters of the past. I kinda like it. Don't think I'd buy one, but it does look mean.

    I'll take the Chrysler over the Audi, save $30,000, and go faster. Unless the Audi is an AWD powerhouse.

    How's this? 430hp, 6speed paddle shift Tiptronic

    "Knock-your-socks-off grunt comes courtesy of the wagon's monstrously virile 4.2-liter V8 engine. Its "bi-turbo" layout entails the use of two smaller turbochargers instead of a single large one; the engine delivers 430 horsepower, and Audi promises excellent potency even at the lower end of the rev band. The V8 is managed via a six-speed automatic transmission, designed to allow drivers the option of using steering-wheel-mounted shift paddles."

    Cool sighting......

    well need less to say i have seen dodge doing alot of testing around here in the past, saw the SRT-4 before they went on sale as well.. last week saturday in the afternoon on my way to auto zone and what do i see.. hum, front and rear bra covers.. but after seeing the web site i could not mistake the car.. 2SRT8's and a caravan going down the street.. even with the covers those things look low and mean... hard to describe the little bit of sound i got to hear, i was in the turning lane when i saw them and was like what is this.. then to late they where gone... makes the new mustang cobra sound WEAK from the exhaust note, i hope to see them again maybe i can get them to stop so i can take some pics...sweeeeetttttttttt
    it's stock really....
