    The Hemi is supposed to do 0-60 in 5.3 seconds, run 13.9 in the 1/4. It looks ok, not half bad really, but I'm willing to look past the exterior for a real rear-drive Chrysler car...

    I passed a dealership today here in Saratoga Springs, NY and they had a pearl colored one. The car is gorgeous - people were stopping to just look at the car.

    I think it has a real road presence. The 300C and the magnum are going to be huge hits for D-C.

    Am I the only one that thinks that the front view resembles the new A8?

    The 300C is cool, a bit ungainly looking in photos (Havent seen one yet) but not too bad. I really like the fact that Chrysler put the truck engine in there along with the Benz tranny, it sounds like a good match. The price is awesome, what is it for a Hemi C model? 39000 fully optioned? Thats like a BMW 7-sized car with a 5-series V8 for 3-series money. I bet its a hit.

    I like the Dodge Magnum wagon more, though. And If Chrysler brings back the Charger on a shortened 2 door version of that platform with the Viper engine (no reason why it shouldnt fit) it could take every GTO sale from GM.
