View Thread: Magnum SRT-8


87 Supra Turbo
I read the article about this on C&D today and suprisingly I like it a lot. I've always disliked station wagons with a passion but I could almost see myself getting one of these. If it had a manual I'd be all over it.

it looks some some kind of strange lowered SUV to me, but hey if the car performs then that is what counts

Mr.Dave
A base price of 33K and acceleration of that of an M5??? With 4 doors?!?! I'm all over that!

I've been noticing a trend though lately, we've seemed to be moving either towards more horsepower, or greater gas mileage. And with some of the cars on the market I don't think we've had such cool cars out since the late 60s. (Even though I wasn't around and might not have any idea what I'm talking about.) :)

I read the C&D with the article in it. It's pretty sweet. Hopefully they will build a sedan verson. I really like the look of it, the truck like grill looks really agressive.

I think it looks pretty beast too. I agree with you Rotary Boy, it looks like a lengthened Durango in a mexican rap video.

I don't know if I should take that literally or sarcasticly. :)

I like it. It meets two important requirements - fast and mean - and it's both!

And I LOVE station wagons. The sport wagon is going to become much more popular as people that they are much better performers than SUVs and carry just as much crap.

The kid in the Integra that got his ass beat by my Jetta awhile back probably isn't a big fan though. Or maybe he's been converted. Who knows :D

When is this coming out?? Maybe I can convince my parents into getting this :D

ok, nevermind...too far into the future.

(I never thought I'd ever say that)

eric
There are def other cool wagons: RS4/6 wagon, WRX/STi wagon anyone?

masestylez
RS2 Wag is cool too. :D

Turbojett
