Named the Dodge Magnum, it came out for the 2005 model year, featuring multiple engine options and pure rear-wheel drive, as well as an optional all-wheel drive system limited to specific configurations. For the 2006 model year, the automaker expanded the offering with a hot SRT-8 version. Previewed by a concept car shown at the LA event two years earlier, it was a force to be reckoned with.
To differentiate it from the rest of the family, Dodge gave it revised front and rear fascias, larger brakes signed by Brembo behind the 20-inch wheels, a firmer suspension setup for quicker cornering, and a 6.1-liter V8 engine pushing out 425 hp (431 ps/317 kW) and 420 lb-ft (569 Nm) of torque. It had a five-speed auto 'box and rear-wheel drive, was capable of hitting 60 mph (97 kph) in the low 5s, and took around 13 seconds to complete the quarter-mile sprint.
Not many copies of the Dodge Magnum SRT-8 are listed for grabs, and whenever one starts searching for a new home, it usually changes hands in no time. This 2008 model should have no trouble sparking the interest of bidders at the Mecum auction in Glendale, Arizona. You have a few months to decide whether you want it or not, as it will go under the gavel at the event that will be hosted between March 5 and 9, 2024.
At the time of writing, there was a single image of it released by the auction house in the online ad that you can find here. The vehicle features a red paint finish on top of a gray interior, and it is an Arizona car in the hot SRT-8 specification. This is where the information ends, so we are left guessing the mileage and some other highlights that would've normally been visible in other pictures. Now, if the Magnum SRT-8 was on your bucket list, how much would you be willing to fork out for this one? Feel free to tell us all about it in the comments section below.
