Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT: Honest to Goodness

I am on the floor above the pits at the Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas, in the US of A. It’s a venue that holds events ranging from music concerts and the V8 Supercars series to MotoGP and of course, Formula 1.

I’m hunting for some warm drinking water for my bad cold, when I hear a sound that can send a chill down coarse throats – that of an animalistic, violent V8. You see, V10s and V12s have this very smooth, sophisticated tenor. A raw V8 sounds very workman like. It’s as if you can hear the pistons grinding away furiously. In fact, this V8 sounds like a Bentley Continental V8 that’s gone easy on the sound deadening.
