    the weird thing is... it's fucking ugly, but very cool at the sametime.

    I'd rock it for the badass factor.

    SUPER 8 HEMI


    The new Dodge Super 8 Hemi concept car is a melting pot of classic Dodge design with Dodge trucks and sport utility vehicles. It combines the best of both worlds to form the newest execution of Passenger Priority design in the guise of a sedan. But where other sedans sit lower to the ground, the Super8 Hemi stands tall to enhance visibility, comfort, space and ease of entry and exit for both driver and passengers.

    Underneath the hood sits the real story of this concept car with roots in the 40s and 50s: the famed Hemi engine that made its name on the early NASCAR tracks. This iteration is a 5.7-liter V8 engine with hemispherical combustion chambers and two spark plugs per cylinder that produces a whopping 353 horsepower and 395 pound-feet of torque with a calculated top speed of 154 mph. Horsepower is delivered to the rear wheels via a four-speed automatic transmission with AutoStick(r) that brings the concept car from zero to 60 in only 5.7 seconds.

    As with all concept cars, the Super8 Hemi doesn't fall short on futuristic gadgets:


    *A 6.4-inch screen is incorporated in the instrument panel
    *Two 8.4 touch screens are located on articulating arms mounted on front-seat backrests for rear-seat passengers
    *Infotronic Speech Recognition and Text-to-Speech telematics technology for onboard devices that maintain an instant link between personal space and cyber space
    Internet-based off-board navigation system with email access
    *Home Connection System allows you to activate or disable home appliances, security systems, and entertainment systems from your car through an Internet-based remote interface
    *A rear-seat entertainment system includes location-based online trivia games, playable either with other passengers, or with a player in another vehicle by way of GPS location technology
    *Nationwide, digital quality, satellite-based audio via Satellite Radio in the continental U.S. Passengers can choose between 100 unique channels, 50 of which are commercial free

    As Jason86Z28 said, this should be the production version of the Super 8

    Magnum SRT-8

    Get a closer look at Dodge Magnum >


    THE NEW MUSCLE

    It's been more than 30 years since Dodge ruled the streets with HEMI® power and rear-wheel-drive performance. Dodge has unleashed that power in an all-new proportion with the introduction of its 2003 Dodge Magnum SRT-8 concept vehicle.

    "Dodge Magnum is the new shape of American muscle," said Dieter Zetsche, President and CEO of the Chrysler Group. "With its innovative packaging, performance and utility, there's nothing else like it. While Chrysler Pacifica is the premium sports tourer, Dodge Magnum is the performance sports tourer that packs a powerful punch and the functionality of an all-wheel drive sport utility. Armed with a HEMI inside and rear-wheel-drive, Dodge Magnum delivers power in a package that offers unmatched flexibility and versatility."

    While the Dodge Magnum SRT-8 is a concept vehicle, it provides a strong hint at the first version of Chrysler Group's much-anticipated next-generation of rear-wheel drive "LX" vehicles. A production version similar to the Dodge Magnum SRT-8 concept vehicle will go on sale in 2004 under the Magnum name.

    SUPERCHARGED HEMI - a new era

    The legendary HEMI engine that powered Dodge's muscle cars of the 1960s has been re-engineered and reborn. The Dodge Magnum SRT-8 concept vehicle features a supercharged version of the 5.7-liter HEMI. While the normally-aspirated 5.7-liter HEMI now used in the Dodge Ram churns out 345 horsepower and 375 lb.-ft. of torque, the addition of the Whipple supercharger pumps up the 5.7-liter HEMI to an estimated 430 horsepower and 480 lb.-ft. of torque. This provides heart-stopping acceleration, with the unique combination of maximum power at low rpms for driveability and ultra-high efficiency for top-end horsepower. Just squeeze the throttle and the engine will respond immediately, from idle to redline.

    REAR-WHEEL-DRIVE PERFORMANCE

    Dodge brings back rear-wheel-drive to transfer all this power to the pavement through an all-new independent five-bar rear-drive layout. The Magnum powertrain and suspension system work together for a precise balance of performance and handling, making optimum use of all four tire contact patches. For ultimate power distribution, an all-wheel drive version of the production Dodge Magnum also will be available.

    Technologies such as electronic stability control, traction control and anti-lock brake systems also have reached new levels of advancement to control rear-drive cars to the point where such systems are transparent to the driver. Tire technology utilizing silica sand further enhances traction in all weather conditions.

    CONTAGIOUS TECHNOLOGY

    Although Chrysler Group had already decided before the merger that the next generation of premium vehicles would be rear-wheel-drive; the 1998 merger with Daimler Benz has afforded Chrysler Group a great portfolio of technology and components. For example, Mercedes is the leader in stability control systems, and spreading that technology across a higher volume will result in reduced per unit costs and high quality at the same time. The production version of the Dodge Magnum SRT-8 will use adapted Mercedes components, including the five-speed automatic transmission, steering and front suspension system, seat structures and electronic architecture. Additionally, Dodge Magnum will use five-link rear suspension architecture based on adapted Mercedes-Benz technology.

    COMING SOON

    "In terms of performance, design and function, the Dodge Magnum SRT-8 concept will leave its mark as one of the coolest vehicles on the road," said Zetsche. "It is aimed squarely at the next wave of automotive enthusiasts looking for passionate performance, an all-new proportion and a vehicle you can use for just about anything."

    Additional features include:

    Electronically-controlled five-speed automatic transmission with AutoStick®
    Dual exhaust
    Navigation system
    Racing-style milled aluminum pedals with Dodge Viper hole pattern
    "Extreme access" liftgate
    Cargo volume of 27.0 cu.ft.
    Traction control
    Electronic stability control
    Navigation radio with integrated six-disc CD changer
