The Chrysler 300 SRT is no longer sold in North America, however Fiat Chrysler deducted that there were still enough muscle car enthusiasts in Australia to justify keeping the car around in the country and thus still sells it there.
Recently, Drive.com.au decided to pit the somewhat long-in-tooth 300 SRT against two of its domestic rivals, the Holden Commodore SSV and Ford Mustang GT. The Holden and the Ford are newer products than the 300 SRT, but with 465 horsepower on tap, the Chrysler is the most powerful.
Power usually wouldn’t be enough to win a three-way test, but this is Australia were talking about, a place with an affinity for drag racing second only to America’s. Then again, the 300 SRT is going against the Mustang, a car that has long been forbidden fruit down under, and the Australian-built Commodore, so it won’t have an easy time convincing the judges it’s the best.
