With the release of the Chrysler 300C SRT8, it wasn't much of a long shot that the Dodge Magnum would get the same treatment. (This move was even more obvious to those who remember that the 2003 "concept" Magnum was an SRT8.) Like its Chrysler 300C counterpart, the Magnum SRT8 gets 425 hp and 420 lb-ft of torque from its bored-out, 6.1-liter Hemi. The extra-large V-8 also features hollow, sodium-filled intake valves to allow higher rpm (redline is 6200), forged crankshafts, and exhaust headers. Outside the engine room we find a resculpted front fascia with integral cooling ducts, a rear spoiler, 20-inch wheels, dual exhaust, upgraded brakes and suspension, and suede-and-leather seats. Dodge is predicting 0 to 60 mph in the low 5 second range, 0 100 0 mph in 16 seconds, and a 60-0 braking distance of 110 feet. Production starts in June.
