300 SRT8 Core coming...

From Allpar:

Quote:
Following the apparent success of the Dodge Charger Super Bee... Chrysler has not only brought back the Super Bee for 2013... but is planning a Chrysler 300C SRT8 Core model, according to reliable source oh20...

...The Charger SRT8 Super Bee, which drops some equipment and adds Super Bee graphics, was, according to oh2o, responsible for nearly a third of domestic Charger SRT8 sales, appealing to those who want the performance but donít care as much about the frills. The SRT8 will still be very well equipped.
Emphasis mine.

The 300 SRT8 Core will likely have the SuperBee's non-adaptive Bilstein shocks, non-adaptive exhaust and cast aluminum rims instead of forged. I also expect it to be without cooled seats, adaptive cruise, sunroof, heated/cooled front cupholders.

What I hope is that unlike the SuperBee, the SRT seats remain, and the paddle-shifters are made standard instead of optional. It'll be interesting to see if the 8.4" screen stays. At the price drop they're talking about in the article ($5k+), I suspect it'll be a base-model 300 with the 6.4L, and SRT exhaust, suspension and wheels I mention above.

Oh, and Merry Christmas.

hmmm...I wonder if they could do anything to lighten up the LX platform a bit besides the total gut they did with the Track Pack cars.

Aluminum doors, trunk, aluminum suspension bits (the 5-link especially is still steel). Lose all the acoustic glass from the 300... but now we're digging into perks of the specific model on the platform...

But $$$$$$$....

this would be very very awesome! i love the luxurious feel the 300 has combined with its performance, however i think we can all agree that the same powerplant with a much lighter package would be a phenomenal feel. reducing weight anywhere from 500-800 pounds i think is totally do-able and the car can still have a nice feel to it. i think as some mentioned before, the price would probably be MORE than the normal setup though, simply due to the cost of lighter materials. its a love hate relationship! dang it!
