Unusually, there has been so much snow falling on Maranello these past few days that, this afternoon, Felipe Massa and Fernando Alonso each had a special vehicle to get around in. They were the first two examples of the new Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8. The cars were handed over to the Scuderia Ferrari drivers by Beth Peretta, Director Marketing and Operations SRT Brand and Motorsports, Chrysler Group LLC.
The two cars had a special trim, bringing some exclusive styling details and the Rosso Corsa colour. The two Grand Cherokee SRT8 SUVs are the first of the new version of the Jeep flagship to hit Europe, where it will go on sale this summer.
Under the hood they’ll find the V8 loaded with 464hp and 630Nm of torque, enough to propel the heavy SUV from 0-100km/h in just 4.8 seconds and on to a top speed of 257km/h.
My SRT -8 is everything the the dealer say they are and more.
