The local Chrysler brand is experiencing something of a mini revival of late, with fresh new product such as the new 300 C and Jeep Grand Cherokee. A performance Grand, called the SRT8, is currently on the market and a special edition of that, called the Alpine limited edition, is here.
We don’t know exactly why it’s called Alpine. However, we do know that only 95 units will be sold here. The SRT8 Alpine features a unique brand of white paintwork, sharply contrasted by a very distinctive set of black 20-inch wheels with something called a Black Vapor Chrome finish. They in turn, are also contrasted by red Brembo brake calipers.
The 6.4-litre naturally aspirated V8 engine remains the same, with 344kW and 624Nm of torque puffing out at the slightest of pedal prods.
This Grand Cherokee SRT8 Alpine limited edition will cost you R864 990 at the till.
