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