Hot 425bhp 300C Touring SRT-8 is go

08 December 2006

  • 0-60mph in 5.0sec and 168mph top speed
  • Range-topping estate costs £40,990
  • On sale in February


An estate version of the high-performance 300C SRT-8 goes on sale in the UK in February.

The hot new Touring estate car uses the same 425bhp 6.1-litre V8 engine as the saloon and is just as quick. The sprint to 60mph takes just 5.0sec, and top speed is 168mph.

Like the saloon, the Touring version of the SRT-8 stands out from the rest of the range with a bespoke interior and unique exterior look, dominated by a body kit designed to improve aerodynamics.

Wheels are bigger than the standard estate's, at 20-inches, and there's a pair of large exhausts at the rear.

The suspension is stiffened and lowered (by 13mm), and uprated Brembo brakes bring the big 300C Touring to a halt.
