2006 Dodge Magnum SRT-8 4dr Wagon (6.1L 8cyl 5A)
I tracked the SRT8 Magnum since it was first shown and then in to production. Since my wife has a R/T Magnum, when I could get an SRT8 there was no hesitation. It is quick, I have out performed many much higher priced cars, walked away from a M5, X5 and other hi pro cars. The car is a natural street "looker" and is well liked by "car people". The Red Pearl color is perfect and reinforces the design and general performance stance. I think Dodge has a winner here and every day I drive it I like it more. No matter what my mood, it gets better when I fire up the 6.1 Hemi. The only thing I would change is to make the exhaust "growl" more at idle and normal low end driving.
Power, looks, seats, color and, in general, the "bad boy" street look. All the rest is icing on the cake, its a winner.
More growl to the exhaust when not in full power. Hood scoop like the Charger as long as it is functional.
