I agree with you, however the Caddy twice the price, or the Chrysler, ("Its a Chrysler!). However, most of the Chrysler owners that buy the 300m won't have the guts to go fast enough to beat a GTO anyway.

The 05 GTO should run 0-60 in 4.5-4.6. They had a bad driver or a bad car.

Where did you get those numbers from? A tank like the 300c faster? Maybe falling off a cliff!

Um...That's the Chrysler 300C SRT-8. As far as I know they are not out yet.

I have a GTO also. I don't like to see those numbers but that is what it reads. Wouldn't you love to have a four door land yatch woop up on you at a light.

Motor Trend has the 300 listed as their 05 Car of the Year, The numbers are for the 04 GTO or they are just biased as usual! The only car pontiac sent to the 2005 Car of the Year Testing was the G6.

Same BS as C&D.
