Would be cool to offer the 6.1 in a performance based R/T. Upgraded brakes, staggered wheels, better suspension. Stock seats, stock wheels, etc. unfortunately it wouldn't be feasible because the base SRT is only ten grand more than the base R/T so putting anything in the middle doesn't make sense because for a few grand more you could get an SRT.
I love American muscle cars like a thrice-divorced 45-year old tax attorney loves barely legal coeds. That is to say; passionately, inappropriately and almost certainly inadequately while muttering whispered apologies to the beautiful thing I am probably ruining forever.
