I think there is an error in the 0-100 times, the Audi should do 5,5 sec not 4,9 sec.

@Anonymous:
The SRT-8 accelerates much faster on the highway then most sportscars and you can take your whole family+luggage with you (try that in a sportscar!). So most sportscars are absolutely meaningless and unusefull compared to the SRT-8.

Since I have a moment, I will give a bit more of my views. Before purchasing my 2011 Mustang GT, I test drove two different late model Honda S2000 sportscars, and then a BMW M3. The Hondas appealed to my sense of lightweight low center of gravity and fun to drive sports machine. Unfortunately, my girlfriend didn't feel safe in the little cars. So then I suggested the M3 and she liked that. I really liked it as well, but then someone showed me the M3 vs Mustang test in MotorTrend and so I decided to go for the big overweight Ford after the test drive confirmed its fun to drive capabilities. I have never test driven the Jeep SRT8, maybe it is fun to drive as well?

@monkeypop thanks for posting the video. Not surprising. Most people who are into drag racing know that a lot of torque and horsepower combined with a strong automatic transmission and all wheel drive will result in good launches and very impressive acceleration. Having said that, I still don't like the Jeep. There's nothing wrong with it or any other ultra powerful SUV, it is just that I am personally more in road racing and back road corner taking. SUVs like the Grand Cherokee SRT-8 are bit heavy and tall for my driving taste. Of course most of today's "sports cars" are getting too tall and heavy for my liking. Yes that includes my new ride. Still the engineers have done some amazing things with the current crop of overweight cars, including hot SUVs like this Jeep.

@monkeypop a Vortech supercharged SRT8 jeep humiliated an R8 V8 at the lights HAHA!

I guess the guy assumes that people that can afford exotics never stop driving them and thus couldnt possibly be on the internet lol.

I'm just saying that this is one of those surprise sleepers. Any true car guy should love it for that.

Are people that Narrow monded? just because you Could be rich or whatever, does not mean you dont visit sites like this. JC!!

Srt8 over an exotic?? Any day right?? Well here's some news for you... You will never be able to own an exotic, if you were able to you wouldn't be on this page bit*ing you would be driving it... On the other hand you might possibly be able to afford a GC srt8 and still afford to modify it and thus be one of the fastest ppl out there... So dream of fast exotic car or actually own a fast ass car. Which one????


User avatar

monkeypop  11y ago

Not saying I would take one of these over a exotic but I wouldnt mind having one. Go play in the mud and spank sports cars at the redlights on the way home... sounds like a fun day to me.

1000bhp, 4wd, that would get you to 60 in 2.8, but cmon, a 1000bhp Chereokee lol over an Exotic? lol Buut, it all depends on our tastes too.

I dont see how posting a video of a stock STR8 Jeep makes you any less wrong.

Dude just pointed out that you can own one of these that will do 0-60 in under 3 seconds. You called B.S.. and where proven wrong. No reason to throw a fit.. just man up and admit it.

You know you think it would be cool to own a jeep that can spank even the most exotic supercars at a redlight. Any car should love the "sleeper" factor.

"I don't believe in a big fat corvette beating anything like Carrera GT or Enzo (not to mention Koenigsegg, Veyron or track cars like Radical). I do not believe that they can do much better than they already have done with current Z06."- posted by "fastest laps 3 years ago on the Z06 page when someone brought up the new blue devil (ZR1).

So yes.. you where clearly wrong. And you where clearly wrong that tuned versions of this jeep can post 2.8 seconds to 60mph but apparently you arent big enough to admit when you are wrong you would rather have a hissy fit.

theres not gonna be a test, so to say there not equal, is just plain stupid.

It's the other way around. To say that because no test showed that they are not equal makes them equal is what doesn't make sense.

Why is the site so magical that it can take horribly incomplete data and give you a conclusion? It cannot. Comparing the ZR1 with the Enzo gives you a bunch of laptimes with very different conditions. Some of the times are kind of close and you have 1000's of unknown variables. What can you do with that data? Nothing but say that the two cars may be close. There is no evidence to say that they are equal.

You cannot use a poor test to make a solid conclusion. Comparing cars with incompatable data does not yield anything. You need a good test.

Until they are tested side by side, there is no answer. That's just how it works.

Info on this site stas tat they are Equal, wether or not there tested side by side. so untill they are tested sid by side, they are equal. they may not have ben tesetd on the same day, nor by the same drivers, but it clearly show, Here, they are equal. and the tests are not incomplete, they have ben tested, just not in a comparison, so regardless, this site, =them equal!! and theres not gonna be a test, so to say there not equal, is just plain stupid.

Your argument is far from sound. You can't take incomplete info and make a conclusion. The only thing you can get from this site is that they are close.

If the test is never done, that just means that the question is never answered. You don't get to make up an answer.

No test is going to be done, atleast not Publicly, so with the information on this site, there Equal, doesnt matter if there side by side tested or not, fact is, since there not going to be, There Equal!


User avatar

E  12y ago

No, that's an estimate as long as they weren't tested side by side. It doesn't matter whether such a test will ever be done or not. Until such a test is done, it's a pretty open question up for debate.

Like he said, Its just as fast regardless, theres not going to be a head to head comparison, but considering the 2 tracks they performed on, and there straightline speeds, there pretty much equal, so yes, just as fast.


User avatar

E  12y ago

They aren't head to head, so there is no definite answer (on ZR1 vs Enzo, etc).

It may be the safer to think that the Italians are faster, after all they were independently tested on the Ring.


User avatar

BumRush  12y ago

How can you say the ZR1 isnt as fast as an Enzo nor Zonda? when the stats here show it clearly is, just as fast?

ZR1 is not as fast as Enzo or recent Zondas.

Is there anything left that I might have possibly got wrong?

Ha, if you're talking about tuned vs tuned, F430 will still, of course, kick that fat Jeeps ass.
