Buying a new Mopar muscle car with a Street and Racing Technology (SRT) badge means huge horsepower figures and equally colossal price tags. Still, there are some used options for those SRT fans out there. If you’re a savvy shopper, you could snag one of the cheapest SRTs on the used car market, like the Magnum SRT8.

  • 2003 Dodge Neon SRT-4
  • 2005 Chrysler Crossfire SRT-6
  • 2008 Dodge Magnum SRT8
  • 2006 Dodge Charger SRT8
  • 2008 Dodge Challenger SRT8

Is the 2003 Dodge Neon SRT-4 fast?

The 2003 Dodge Neon SRT-4 is fast enough to dispatch a sprint to sixty in just 5.6 seconds and reach 153 mph. That’s pretty impressive, even by today’s standards. Also, Kelley Blue Book (KBB) says you can get this little piece of SRT history for around $5,000 to $6,000 if you hunt wisely. However, they’re not famous for being the highest quality performance cars.

If you want a lower mileage example, the price doesn’t grow that much; a 2003 Neon SRT-4 with 50,000 miles will set you back around $7,000. 

How much is a Chrysler Crossfire SRT-6 worth?

A well taken care of 2005 Chrysler Crossfire SRT-6 with around 50,000 miles will cost you about $14,000. Of course, the price drops precipitously once you push above 100,000 miles. Although the Crossfire caught its share of flak for its design and performance, the SRT-6 offers more. Specifically, your money buys a Mercedes-Benz AMG-sourced supercharged V6 engine producing 330 horsepower.

How much does a Dodge Magnum SRT8 cost?

A high-mileage 2008 Dodge Magnum SRT8 with its 425-horsepower 6.1L Hemi V8 will cost you around $13,000. However, KBB says that a lower mileage example could increase the price to above $20,000. Still, that money buys you a muscle wagon with more cargo volume than a Dodge Charger SRT8.

Is the Dodge Charger SRT8 one of the cheapest used SRT cars?

Along with the Magnum, the Dodge Charger marked the rebirth of the Dodge muscle car. Today, a 2006 Dodge Charger SRT8 could be yours for $12,000 or less, depending on mileage and condition. Should you find a good one, you’re in for a treat.

The four-door sedan packs the same 425-horsepower V8 as the Magnum SRT8 and nearly as much practicality. Just be prepared to spend some of your savings at the pump.  

How much does a 2008 Dodge Challenger SRT8 cost?

If you want a 2008 Dodge Challenger SRT8 with around 50,000 miles, be ready to spend about $25,000. However, considering how expensive the latest SRT cars are, it’s still a bargain. If you’re willing to live with a higher-mileage example, that price can fall well below the $20,000 mark. Whichever way you choose, you’ll have one of the cheapest ways to get over 400 factory horsepower. 

Should you buy one of the cheapest SRT vehicles?

If you’re after a bargain or want a piece of the SRT family of vehicles, these cars do it without breaking the bank. There are plenty of choices beyond these as well. For instance, if you don’t want a car, check out the Jeep Cherokee SRT8. However, these are some of your best options if you want to save money. Just be prepared to address little mechanical and electrical gremlins with older and higher mileage used cars.
