My wife is sick of her SUV and asked me if she could get a new Chrysler 300C with the Hemi. We test-drove the car yesterday and I must say that I was impressed. The 5.7L HEMI Multi-Displacement V8 engine with 340 hp at 5000 rpm and 390 lb.-ft. of torque is standard on 300C Model. The car is heavy at 3700 LBS but still runs a mid 14 sec 1/4 mile @ 100 MPH. The final gear ratio is 2.87, but Chrysler offers a performance rear. I believe the salesman said a 3.45 rear. Anyways, I may be placing an order for the gangster 300C lead sled mobile this weekend.
