The Jeep SRT8 is the high performance variant of the Jeep Grand Cherokee. Available for purchase since 2006, the SRT8 features a 6.1L Hemi V8 which produces 420 horsepower. With a 0-60 time of just 4.6 seconds, it has phenomenal performance which is at odds with it high weight and SUV status.
For comparison, here are several other 0-60 times:
Porsche Carrera S: 4.6
Porsche Cayenne Turbo: 4.9
Lexus IS350: 5.3
Chevrolet Corvette: 4.3
The SRT8 is priced quite well. Pricing for 2008 models starts at around 41k and ends in the high 40s for a fully loaded model. Thus, the SRT8 is a excellent blend of performance, prestige, practicality, and cost.
Jeep SRT8 passenger: "Dude, you just smoked that Cayenne Turbo! Doesn't a well equipped one of those cost around 100k?"
Jeep SRT8 owner: "Yep."
slang term for a Dodge Challenger. A badass two door muscle car that was popular in the 70s and made a comeback in the pony wars of 2008. Currently comes in the SE, R/T, and SRT8 packages. SRT8 being the most powerful of the three.

Dude my SRT4 freaking lost badly to your stock WRX last night
The Speedwagon was a fast station wagon of the 1940's made by Ransom E. Olds (I don't know what the E stands for). Mr. Olds started two car companies, Oldsmobile and REO. Oldsmobile was later purchased by GM. REO became extinct a long time ago. Obviously, Oldsmobile is now just a part of automotive history as well.
Think of the REO Speedwagon as the Dodge Magnum SRT8 of the 1940's. I seriously believe the band was named after the car (also with Pantera).
Asian slang referring to someone who drives a phat, ghetto ride.
Man, look at that guy in the Chrysler 300, that nigga is Marsad!
1) A car made by Dodge during the 70's, before it came out of production in 1973. Very fast and competent in terms of performance, even by modern standards, and with styling every person with good taste has to like. It has it's own spot in the hall of fame of every true car enthusiast. Collectors go mad for such cars, especially if it's a genuine "numbers-matching" model of the high performance versions (with the big 426 or 440 engine fitted from the factory and not as an after market modification)
2) A car that's currently under production by Dodge (from 2008 till today). The car you could have bought yourself (either in it's inexpensive base trim or the very fast SRT version), if you hadn't foolishly spent 15000 dollars upgrading your japanese 4banger rice burner. Yes, it's interior may not have the quality of other cars, but Chrysler has managed to nail old-school muscle car power along with the smoothness and handling of a modern sports car.
1) Tomorrow there is an auction for a "numbers matching" 1970 Dodge Challenger R/T that just went on sale. Bet the price will reach a six-figure number again.
2) Dodge Challenger SRT8: The living proof that, no matter how much Chrysler, Ford and GM screw it up, muscles car will continue to live and reign, as they will always offer the best bang for your buck.
