Performance car enthusiasts who crave speed and power can enjoy an early holiday gift this weekend, courtesy of Chrysler Group LLC.

The Company’s Street and Racing Technology (SRT®) high-performance vehicle lineup will be the featured performers on Speed Channel’s “Test Drive” program Sunday, Dec. 18 at 12 p.m.

The show will include in-depth looks at the Chrysler 300 SRT8®, Dodge Challenger SRT8 392, Dodge Charger SRT8 and Jeep® Grand Cherokee SRT8. Show host and champion road racer Tommy Kendall and his special guests will drive the SRTs on big-city streets and cross-country, in the U.S. and in Europe.

“Working with a champion driver and true enthusiast like Tommy Kendall, along with the team at Speed, is always a blast,” said Ralph Gilles, President and Chief Executive Officer - SRT Brand and Motorsports, Chrysler Group LLC. “I can’t wait to see the premiere.”

The 60-minute program is broken into four segments – each showcasing one of the new 2012 SRT products. Following Sunday’s premiere, the show will be rerun throughout the next few months. Check www.speedtv.com for more information. Click here for a video preview of the program.

The SRT brand prides itself on utilizing a successful product development formula featuring five proven hallmarks: awe-inspiring powertrains; outstanding ride, handling and capability; benchmark braking; aggressive and functional exteriors; and race-inspired and high-performance interiors to remain true to its performance roots.

Speed and power. Two rare and exciting gifts for you to enjoy on Speed Channel this Sunday (and for several weeks to come).

Happy Holidays!
