Dodge Ram SRT10: Well. It still is an ugly-ass form for Prime.

Alternator Optimus PrimeEvebird, The Internet's Most Beloved Transformer Original Animation Cel Collector, sent me this article indicating that the Dodge Ram SRT10, the

At the top of the "Meanest" list for 2006 is the Dodge Ram SRT10, powered by the same 500-horsepower 8.3-liter V10 engine used in the Dodge Viper SRT10 sports car. The Ram SRT10 received a Green Score of 12, compared to the top score of 57 earned by the gasoline-electric hybrid Honda Insight.

The Green Score is a numeric value of a vehicle's environmental friendliness assigned by ACEEE. Not based solely on fuel economy, the Green Score also takes into account tailpipe emissions and emissions of gases that cause global warming. The higher the Green Score, the more environmentally friendly the vehicle is overall, based on the ACCEEE evaluation.

The Ram SRT10's position at the top of the list made us wonder if the ability to create large volumes of tire smoke contributed to the low score received by the performance pickup. While the SRT10 may not haul much cargo, it is as fun to drive as any exotic sports car, and just might be worth the disdainful stares from the hybrid-driving members of your neighborhood block watch.

So the new ugly-ass Alternator Optimus Prime, which happens to be a Dodge Ram SRT10, also happens to be in the form of the most polluting car according to the ACEEE.

Lamborghini MurcielagoHowever, I find it even funnier that I happen to think the second most polluting car on the list, the Lamborghini Murcielago, would probably make the finest Sunsteaker ever. What a perfect modern car to be a modern Sunstreaker. And 13 mpg would probably be something Sunstreaker (the character) would be laughing at!
