So I've been looking around at other car companies to see what they have to compete with the RAM R/T. From what I can see of course ford and chevy have single cab short beds but they don't make any cool versions of them like the R/T (even though I have seen some videos of the ford with a 5.0 spanking an R/T on the quarter mile
But then I found the 427ss:
The engine is the 7.0L ls7 corvette z06 engine (427ci) with dry sump oil system that pushes 505 hp and 470 ftlbs of torque and a six speed manual trans with a 3.01: 1 first gear.
3.73 gears with a locking diff
22" rims with 305/40zr22 Pirelli Scorpion
Factory lowered suspension
6 piston baer calipers and 16" rotors all the way around
Sadly I looks like this beast never got past concept but there are a few of these things floating around in the U.S.
I hate to say it but I'm pretty sure this thing would walk all over the ram r/t untill chrylser stepped up and put the 6.4L in and changed a few other things.
Heres a refresher on the ram r/t in case anyone doesn't know about it:
5.7L hemi engine 383hp 400 ftlbs of torque
6 speed automatic
4.10 gears with locking diff
no factory drop
base 1500 brakes
So lets say that the 427ss is in production, which one would you rather have?
Unfortunally I don't have a price on the 427 but I'm sure its well over $33,000
