It is not just about the numbers, for me a lot of the reason I opted to buy a used 2010 SRT8 instead of a new 2012 R/T for about the same price were all those little SRT8 benefits (better brakes, great sounding stock exhaust, etc), as a guy with a bad back the seats would have sealed the deal by themselves, not saying the R/T seats are bad, but the SRT seats are in a league of their own.
On a related note, I went to Lone Star Modern Mopar festival a couple of months ago, and it seemed all the R/T owners were talking about which SRT8 take off parts they had put on their R/T's (suspension, exhaust, wheels, brakes, etc.) at which point I have to ask myself, if they wanted an SRT8 why not buy one already assembled. Now sure mine is not a 392, but the 6.1 still has 425HP from the factory a while back I found myself at over 120mph and still accelerating while passing a slow moving truck I had been stuck behind for miles on a 2 lane highway, which when you sit back and think about it should really be fast enough.
Or lets put it another way from the factory it will do 0-60 in under 5 seconds, the 1/4 mile in 12.? and has a top speed of over 175 mph, try to name any car in the world that cost under $100,000 that could do that 10 or 15 years ago.
