    SRT-4 emblem SRT-6 emblem SRT-8 emblem SRT-10 emblemStreet & Racing Technology (commonly called SRT) is a high-performance automobile group within Fiat Chrysler Automobiles. SRT began as "Team Viper" to develop the Dodge Viper. It later merged with "Team Prowler", the developers of the Plymouth Prowler, to become Specialty Vehicle Engineering (SVE). This was renamed Performance Vehicle Operations (PVO) in January 2002. Since all PVO vehicles used the SRT name, the PVO development group was renamed SRT in 2004. SRT heavily tunes and produces vehicles for the Chrysler, Dodge, and Jeep brands. The naming convention used by SRT for its models are indicative of the vehicle's engine type. The number that follows the "SRT" prefix denotes the number of engine cylinders the vehicle has. For example: the Chrysler 300C SRT8 has a 6.1 liter Hemi V-8; Therefore, the SRT version is known as the Chrysler 300C SRT-8. Similarly, the Dodge Viper SRT-10 along with the Dodge Ram SRT-10 had an 8.3 L V-10. Currently the fastest SRT production models are the 2018 Challenger Demon with a quarter mile time of 9.65 seconds, the 2015 Charger Hellcat with a quarter mile time of 11.0 seconds, the 2013 Dodge Viper SRT with a quarter mile time of 11.1 seconds, and the 2015 Challenger Hellcat with quarter mile time of 11.2 seconds. Other SRT models have recorded quarter mile performances, from 12.8 seconds for the AMG-based Chrysler Crossfire SRT-6 to the Dodge Neon SRT-4 at 13.9 seconds. Chrysler released the 6.4L Hemi engine in early 2011. New SRT-8 versions have 392 HEMI (6.4L) engine, rated at and . The new engine is used in the 2012 Dodge Challenger SRT8, Dodge Charger SRT8, Chrysler 300 SRT8 and the Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8. With the improved engine, current SRT8 model are not only faster than the previous model, but also has better fuel efficiency than the previous one. In 2012 Chrysler implemented a plan to turn SRT into a separate brand under the Chrysler Group umbrella. During the 2013 and 2014 model years, the Dodge Viper was sold under the model name SRT Viper. In May 2014, the SRT brand was re-consolidated under Dodge, with former SRT CEO Ralph Gilles continuing as senior vice president of product design and also as the CEO and president of Motorsports. In late 2014, Chrysler announced a new variant of the Dodge Challenger and Charger models named "SRT Hellcat" and another variant called the "SRT Demon" in early 2017.

  • Chrysler 300 letter series

    serch.it?q=Chrysler-300-letter-series

    The Chrysler 300 "letter series" are high-performance personal luxury cars that were built by Chrysler in the U.S. from 1955 to 1965. After the initial year, which was named C-300, the 1956 cars were designated 300B. Successive model years were given the next letter of the alphabet as a suffix (skipping "i"), reaching the 300L by 1965, after which the model was dropped. The 300 "letter series" cars were among the vehicles that focused on performance built by domestic U.S. manufacturers after World War II, and thus can be considered one of the muscle car's ancestors, though full-sized and more expensive. The automaker began using the 300 designations again for performance-luxury sedans, using the 300M nameplate from 1999 to 2004, and expanding the 300 series with a new V8-powered 300C, the top model of a new Chrysler 300 line, a new rear-wheel drive car launched in 2004 for the 2005 model year. Unlike the first "letter series" series, the successive variants do not feature standard engines producing at least 300 hp (224 kw), except for Chrysler's current top-line 300C models.
