It’s stuff like this that always gets me into trouble. For those of you that don’t know my daily driver is a Dodge Magnum SRT8. It’s basically a 425hp 170mph station wagon and I love it. It hauls everything I could ever want, stops on a dime thanks to it’s big Brembo brakes and will dust off the majority of road going cars today. Yesterday as I was driving out east to go play with two Corvettes, I did happen to come upon a relatively new Dodge Viper. Now, I knew that I could never win but far be it from me to back down from a challenge. We both nailed it and the obvious outcome of me having my ass handed to me ensued… I hate when this happens.
Then as I’m surfing the forums this morning, I see this. A new twin turbo set-up for the Dodge and Chrysler SRT cars by Hellion. This is bad, very bad because now I start thinking about the possibilities of having a 600 hp station wagon as opposed to only 425 hp. It’s a sickness really and as most car guys will tell you, it does not have a cure. This sickness has led to things like bankruptcy, divorce and mental illness. Thankfully the price also caught my eye. You see it’s $7,995.00 and that’s a lot of scratch. So, for right now I think I’ll just sit back in my cushy seats and be happy with my good ole’ 425 hp. After all, I wouldn’t want to be embarrassing unsuspecting super car owners in a lowly station wagon. I mean, what would be the fun in that?
