2008 Dodge Caliber SRT

I don't care if you think it's ugly (I personally think it's bad-ass), this is one bad mofo.

For around $23k, you too can have a Getrag 6-speed, turbocharged, 2.4L, producing 285 horsepower and 265 ft.-lbs. of torque, 19" wheels, and it even has a functional hood scoop. Sure it weighs 3,100 lbs., but maybe SVT should be taking a few pointers from SRT. GET YOUR HEAD OUT OF YOUR ASS FORD!

(Just my opinion, but if they would have made the wheels and headlight black...that would have REALLY set it off.)

If you didn't catch the Neon SRT, this would the perfect choice.

I drove the Caliber once and I was very impressed.

Take a look at this SRT family video:

gorgeous front end. and agreed, blacked out headlights and tails, along with some simple black rims with a chrome lip...yeah. i really like that. just based on looks alone, that climbs towards the top of the sports compact list in my mind.
