Which model/year to buy?

Hi everyone. I've been doing some searching for used SRT8's as well as pricing RT models. I was wondering what those of you more experienced with this car think of the following.
I have found some 2010 SRT's (6.1L) with very low miles for approximately 35,000. (One has only 750 miles) I have also found some SRT8's with the 392 for approximately 40,000 with similar mileage. I'm also considering an RT because of the bang for the buck, but I've been spoiled by the "feel" of the 392. I question is which is the better buy, considering that it will be my DD.
In particular would a 2010 SRT8 be a good choice compared to a 2013 for $5000-7000 more? Is the newer car worth the extra cost? What are the performance differences? I'm not concerned about the actual age of the car, I have no intention of letting it go for a very long time.
Thank you!

My 2012 392 with M6 is my commuter every other day. I have a 12-mile/20 minute commute (each way) and just love driving it to/from work.

I bought it new nine months ago: it had been sitting in the showroom for over a year; it had an MSRP of $51,000 and picked it up for $46,500. I may have been able to haggle a little harder, but I really wanted a BSP with silver stripes and M6, and this was the last one left in the whole country.

My car now has 8,000+ miles (1,200 of which were just to drive it home from N.E. CO!): it still feels and smells as new. I've seen similar vehicles listed on Carmax for around $40,000.
