We just found at that at the next event in Fontana, California, at the California Speedway (May 20-22), thrill rides will be offered in none other than the ME 412. Obviously, this is a once in a lifetime experience. If you're interested, contact SRT Headquarters for additional info. I'm not sure if the vehicle will be at any other event.

Also, as many of you have noticed, the official website is finally up and running. We all appreciate your patience during the last few weeks. You can now register online at www.srttrackexperience.com.

Please let me know if there are any additional questions.

It's not really up to me; if it was, it would be in my driveway.

I'm just dissappointed you're coming nowhere near Indianapolis with anything. It's not like we don't have any racing venues around here. :rolleyes:

Hey Jmatt - they are not coming anywhere near Winnipeg, MB - I have to come to them. 1300 miles to Atlanta but i know it will be worth it. just wish it also came with the me 412. that things does 0-60 in 2.9.

here's something from the net. there is a reason why josh says it would a once in a lifetime.


The ME stands for "mid-engined." The quad-turbo, V-12 powered Chrysler ME Four Twelve supercar may not only establish real-world performance records but may also set a record for lightning-quick vehicle development. It took less than one year to complete from start to finish (though we don't know what they started with).

The engine is from AMG, with 850 bhp @ 5750 rpm, with 850 lb-ft. (1150 N-m) of torque between 2500 and 4500 rpm on premium unleaded fuel. It was reportedly designed for Chrysler, but will probably be used by Mercedes in other applications (we'd expect it to appear in the Vision and perhaps the McLaren SLR). Use of the AMG engine was dictated largely by the need for high power with light weight (around 500 lb) and at reasonable development cost.

With a curb weight of just 2880 lbs. (1310 kg), the ME Four-Twelve has the weight-to-power ratio of 3.4 lbs/bhp — a new performance record. In actual Chrysler speed runs, the ME Four-Twelve goes from 0-60 mph in 2.9 seconds, 0-100 mph in 6.2 seconds, and it will blister through the quarter mile in 10.6 seconds at 135 mph. The estimated top speed of the ME Four-Twelve is 248 mph (400 km/h). The vehicle is designed and packaged to achieve outstanding thermal performance under extreme operating conditions. Its large capacity, high-efficiency engine-cooling system allows this engine to retain optimum thermal performance — a key advantage in the super car arena.


Josh - we are not talking about keeping the car in our driveway - just to see it run around the track in Atlanta. Think of it being one in the east to even out the one in So Cal.

You gotta tell the guys who are responsible that I'm traveling that far - Please... (I don't normallly beg - but this time it would be worth it)
