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!

Don't disregard the 6.1, it's no slouch by any means. So if you want SRT at a "reasonable" cost.....

When I was in the market I looked at all the 8 cylinders, RT and SRT. I was drawn to the 6.1 because of the overall performance (not just HP) of the SRT over the RT, and I could get a 6.1 for about 10k less than any 392 available in my area at the time. But the closer was when I found a garage queen in the exact colour with a 6spd in it. I asked the wife what she thought and when she replied "It's f*king beautiful!" well .... SOLD. No regrets here. :thumbsup:
