Hahahaha, I know some people who would love to drive this thing into a wall. What a way to kill a nice trim of the SRT8, the Super Bee!

I think Mopar guys and any other SRT8 fans should be happy it wasn't a hack job, at least it seems to be done properly.

What would a convertible conversion cost? $15 000- 20 000? I know this cannot be under $10 0000

If the quality in the conversion is in place I say thumbs up. Not my cup of tea and I wouldn't ever purchase it, but if I was a MOPAR enthusiast and had funny money and a stable of cars, why not? 72 degrees on a Saturday running some errands wouldn't suck with the top down.

I bought a bunch of convertible Mustangs and Camaros.
I was young and didn't have the standards that I do now.

I will never buy another vert., especially not a sedan. Too many compromises.
Unless, it's Miata or Boxster that I absolutely steal to just use as a toy.

I think the targa top of the Corvette is the ultimate compromise of stiffness and open top.

But, I would buy a Cayman over a Boxster.
Then, immediately drop a LS7 in it from Renegade Hybrids.

A four door Charger already looks wrong. Add a soft top and it's a crime.
Dude, I hate Dodge.
But, you gotta admit the latest Charger looks pretty good outside and inside.

If Dodge offered the Charger SRT-8 V8 with AWD, I might buy that over the SS Sedan.

Even the Charger RT with AWD and the new 8 speed transmission should be interesting to compare to the SS Sedan when both are available.

With an Italian company now involved in Dodge/Chrysler products might just be a matter of time till we see some high horsepower AWD vehicle from them.

Would be a smart move on Dodge's part to make the Charger AWD or to give it that AWD option. In the industry brands like to keep up with their competitors, so if Dodge does this, Chevy might start considering it if they aren't stupid enough to ignore it lol

The Charger has been offered in AWD since it's launch in the RT model.
The RT V8 makes less power than the SRT V8, but it's a nice option for a 4 season beater.

My mistake, you're right, the Charger is offered in AWD in a few model, unfortunately the SRT-8 is not.

I noticed there is about a $2000 premium to go AWD, so the SRT-8 sitting at $46K will eventually be sitting under $50k as an AWD model which isn't too bad, it will be very practical for someone to want to add that extra $2k just to go AWD.

Unfortunately, they have never offerd AWD in any SRT other than the SRT Cherokee. (Way too heavy at 5k lbs)

Those numbers are suggested retail. Real world numbers for cars and options are a lot less. :D

Although the SRT Cherokee is heavy, it's still badass and can move fast as ****. Plus you can make up for that weight with power :D And it turns amazingly for a 5k SUV.

GM and Chrysler need to see the need for an AWD performance sedan and need to stop loosing to Europeans!
