Why The Hell Are These Fighter Jets Taking Off From Public Roads? (VIDEO)

The SRT brand made a (tiny) bit of news today at the Chicago Auto Show. Three of the four SRT vehicles will be offered up in new special versions dubbed the Satin Vapor editions. The Dodge Challenger, Chrysler 300, and Dodge Charger will all be made available in this new style, with each vehicle getting a specific exterior and interior treatment. Additionally, each version is very moderately priced.

On the outside, the mirrors and gas flap door also feature a black satin finish. The overall paintwork is available in either white, red, or orange. Inside, the Challenger gets Napa leather seats and suede inserts. Chrysler outfits the 300 SRT with the same 20-inch wheels, and the exterior bits also get the satin black pieces. Paintwork is offered up in either white, silver, or a color called Granite Crystal. On the inside, there is Napa leather and piano black trim pieces.

Exterior color choices are white, red, silver, and graphite. On the interior, the Napa leather is mixed with suede inserts. SRT is trying (if only a little), but so far, the Chicago Auto Show is underwhelming on all fronts.
