The 2012 Chrysler SRT8 model line-up includes four impressive vehicles: the Dodge Challenger SRT8, Dodge Charger SRT8, Chrysler 300 SRT8, and Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8. With all of these models sporting the same 6.4 liter HEMI V8 engine producing 470 HP and 470 lb-ft of torque, it seemed only natural that Chrysler would want to show them all off in a video doing some killer burnouts.

If you’re a fan of screeching tires and white smoke, then this video is for you. If you are more of the data type then you’d be interested to know that Chrysler’s latest HEMI V8 can be mated to either a standard Tremec TR-6060 six-speed manual transmission or a dual-disc high performance clutch, depending on the model. The range of models also deliver a decent fuel economy, with our favorite - the Challenger SRT8 - providing up to 23 miles per gallon on the highway, as well as great performance. The muscle car can do the 0-60 mph sprint in the high 4-second range and the quarter-mile in the high 12s. Top speed has been increased to more than 180 mph with the manual transmission (173 mph in the automatic).

When it comes to SRT8, I would say that nothing is compare with the Dodge Challenger! Well, its a great thing that this vehicle knows on how to drift. It seems to be an awesome car.

Oh! I never thought that even Chrysler wants to get down dirty on the race track. Although, I haven’t seen the car fully drift. Still, I was impressed with its effort to make a smokey tyres burnout.

These four cars are all impressive with their speed and engine performance. I wonder who will be going to win if those four really compete in a race. I think that would be a better idea.

I was impressed with the speed performance of this muscle car. I never thought that it can do the donuts. However, I wonder on what will happen if there will be a race between the Dodge, Chrysler and Jeep.

Well, its a good thing that this car offers two engine options. The Chrysler SRT8 have a high speed performance. And I never thought that it can drift and would perform a smokey burnout. BTW, I wonder if this car still have the same problem in the corner.
