SRT8 at 40k, there must be a plain version at 30k add little aftermarket supercharger and you are back in the 70’s smiley

yea not to bad but it seems like price goes by horsepower more and more these days. i wish they would make like the old days. 400 hp, 4 on the floor, fm radio and hard looking, for under 30 grand

At well below $40k, this 425-HP modern muscle car is a deal

I am also impatient to see the real car pictures as it will quite different from the concept. For instance they already said that there will be a B ar (between front and back windows). All bumpers also have few chances to keep their look to comply with safety laws.

Finally, a little clarity on the model lineup. The price is suddenly quite competitive. Would be interesting to hear the details on the drivetrain and the suspension layout. Liveaxle or independent suspension?

40k that sounds about right for a performance car like this. considering it is relatively affordable I presume we should not expect any German like quality on that car.
