Up to this point in time, the most powerful car I’ve ever tested was a 6-litre twin-turbo V12 AMG Coupé which put out a colossal 612 horsepower and did 0-100 in a shade over four seconds. Both those figures have now been beaten… by an SUV from America.
The ahhsum block
If my television is anything to go by, American vocabulary has decreased to just two overused phrases; “Ermegherd” and “ahhsum”. While the first one is slightly blasphemous, I’d be happy to use the second to describe this week’s test car: Chrysler’s new 300C.
The brash bargain
Mere minutes ago I realised that I have an unnerving affection for American cars. Despite my personal preferences, I quite like most Dodge efforts, secretly lust after an old Corvette and regard Jeep as one of the most esteemed badges in the business.
