Why no SRT8 comparisons?

Buddy of mine asked this the other day. So far haven't they only compared it to the R/T models?

Yeah, I think there will be a SRT8 comparison soon, but all of the main comparisons have focused on the cars in the same price range (GT, R/T).

Here, it's been compared about 40 million times.

But yeah, I would assume the mags like to compare based on which model it's obviously priced to compete with.

because it cost way too much and for 4k more you can have a GT500 that will blow the ever lasting hell out of that SRT8

Unlike other people who like to compare the SS to vehicles that cost 5 to 8 K more.

I think those prices have dropped. I have not heard of anyone latley paying $42k for an SRT8 product. Not in the past 6 months anyway. Compare prices they are being sold for please. I ask a dealer in Fremont Ca "how much to order an SS like that one there?" He said, "This one is fully loaded so about 42, plus our lovley dealer mark up." How much is dealer markup? like 5-15K?

Are you kidding? a dealer mark-up on an ordered car? You my friend, need to lay off the crack pipe.
