Should I Buy a Chrysler 300 SRT8 Core?

The Chrysler 300 SRT8 Core is an unashamed muscle car - albeit with a veneer of 21st Century cool.

It produces an incredible 347kW and 631Nm and sells for around $60k drive-away - making it pretty much the muscle car performance bargain of the decade.

To see how affordable a Chrysler 300 SRT8 Core can be, and avoid getting ripped off by a dealer, fill in my contact form, just to the right and up a bit. Learn how painless it is to tender out your purchase, and use the bulk buying power of Australia's best car brokerage to save you thousands. 

Refreshingly, the Chrysler 300 SRT8 Core is a car that hasn't jumped on the 'greenwashing' bandwagon, with much of the car industry - although, incredibly enough, it does have an 'eco' indicator. Good luck getting the Chrysler 300 SRT8 Core's eco indicator to light up with your foot on the throttle. This thing is designed to turn hydrocarbons into exquisite noise and shockingly fast forward progress. Carbon? Footprint? In the immortal words of P. Hanson: Please explain???

I caught up with broadcasting legend, mate and mentor Clive Robertson on Sydney's 2UE to discuss my recent test drive in the Chrysler 300 SRT8 Core - among other things - during my regular motoring segment on Friday night March 21, 2014. (A warm-up of sorts before hosting the overnight programme on 2UE, 4BC, 2CC and stations across Australia.)

One of the great privileges of being a broadcaster on 2UE is spending time in the studio with Robertson. He's famous for changing from a solid to a gas and then solidifying elsewhere on the conversational chessboard without warning. If you can keep up with Robertson, you can keep up with anyone.

The regular motoring segments on 2UE are Friday nights at 10:30pm with Robertson and Sunday afternoons from 3pm until 4pm with Tim Webster.

We take calls in both segments the open line number is 13 13 32, and you can listen live anywhere in the universe with internet access via the web at, or by the smartphone apps for iOS and Android.
