2012 Chrysler 300C
2012 Chrysler 300C SRT8 matches rev with grunt, pounding out 470 lb-ft of torque; yet it gets 25% better highway mileage than its predecessor. One spotted car was red, one was titanium with a black chrome grille surround and black chrome wheels; the final car uses silver Brembo calipers, with 14.2 inch front and 13.8 inch rear vented, slotted rotors. A “ready alert braking” system sets the pads closer to the rotors to reduce lag time when the driver suddenly releases the gas pedal. Brake fade is reduced thanks to new cooling ducts

The new Adaptive Damping Suspension (ADS) system is tuned specifically for the Chrysler 300 SRT8; it uses a wide range of on-road and driver inputs - such as vehicle speed, steering angle, steering speed, brake torque, throttle position and lateral and vertical accelerations - to automatically tune the suspension for specific conditions when necessary. In addition, drivers can manually choose between “Auto” and “Sport” settings that quickly change the shock damping and harshness characteristics from everyday commuting to more spirited driving situations

Projected performance numbers include 0-60 mph acceleration in the high 4-second range; quarter mile in high 12 second range; 0-100-0 mph in less than 16 seconds, top speed of 175 mph and stopping power from 60-0 mph in 120 feet
