SRT Viper

When people think Mopar, they're usually thinking performance. And there's no better higher-performance Chrysler Group vehicle than the SRT Viper.

Forged aluminum ultralightweight wheels and carbon fiber cross bracing add strength, but not a lot of weight.

The cargo area is possibly better outfitted to maintain a race car than most drivers' garages are. Looking inside, I was amused to find not one, but two RoboReels.

Jeep Wrangler Stitch

Let's get crazy again. The Jeep Wrangler Stitch is ridiculously lightweight for a modern Wrangler -- only 3,000 pounds -- giving it a power-to-weight ratio similar to that of the Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT. Jeep was able to do this by replacing many of the body panels with fabric stretched over a composite frame.

The suspension has been modified with King shocks and air bumps along with a host of off-road modifications to the drivetrain and chassis. The whole thing sits atop 35-inch Mickey Thompson off-road tires, while the driver sits atop SRT Viper seats that have been lightened and retrimmed.
