Video: SRT Family Ties

The newest member in the Chrysler family is SRT (Street and Racing Technology), which was unveiled at the same time as the new generation Viper that bnow bears its name. According to Chrysler, this new extension of their brand will be responsible for the development of the most powerful performance models available.

A lot goes behind setting up an arm such as SRT. Each department has a specific use in the grand scheme of the automotive world. Today, SRT has unveiled a video that explains the essence of this newly created brand and solidifies its purpose for the company: "The SRT family of five street and racing technology vehicles represents the pinnacle of Chrysler performance. Five different ways to get your revs up - all bred from the minds of those passionate about making cars better, faster and stronger."

SRT has already wowed us with their new generationViper, but we have to wonder what other scintillating models they have in store. The next piece of this SRT puzzle comes in the form of the Barracuda, but will it be able to stand up to its German competitors? Only time will tell, but they are sure off to a great start!

in the end, i guess time will be the best judge to say who is better and who isn’t.

i still believe that there are two different cultures. the baracuda or the mustang or the impalla or lots of other cars do not have an european equivalent.

otto, you might be right. but so can a BMW M3 CLS. and it’s not the only one.

funny you guys should say that. as far as i know, both the new viper and the corvette ZO6 can corner quite well. not to mention speed.

brad might be right. in the corners it’s where a race is won or lost.

maybe they will be able to beat the competition as far as power is concerned. but it is a known fact that american cars get scared by corners.

it’s nice that Chrysler starts it’s own in-house tuning.

american muscle cars are something different from european powerful cars. having much powerful ones is only better.

SRT is the american equivalent to AMG, M division or Audi’s RS. is it gonna match them?
