    Dodging the Camera: Magnum SRT-8 sportwagon spotted in production trim.

    [​IMG]

    You’ve seen the concept—now how ’bout a glimpse of the real deal?

    Here’s our spy guy’s shots of the forthcoming 2005 Dodge Magnum SRT-8 sportwagon in production trim undergoing testing at Chrysler’s Arizona test facility. While the concept revealed in Los Angeles featured a 430-horsepower supercharged 5.7-liter Hemi V8, the production model due in early 2004 will likely hit the market with a 340-hp Hemi under the hood.

    Magnum and a sister Chrysler model based on the 300C concept shown last month in New York represent Chrysler’s next-generation front-engine, rear- and all-wheel-drive LX replacements. The cars use Mercedes Benz parts, including suspension, transmission and steering hardware. A third potential LX model, the Airflite concept that debuted in Geneva, is a five-door sport hatchback powered by a 3.5-liter V6 driving the rear wheels

    It's the same as the concept, except for the headlamps.

    The concept had projector HIDs up front, this one has plain old halogens...

    Probably not, They're trying to make Chrysler into their luxury line and Dodge will be more down to earth.

    These headlights look like they came off the Caravan or something. Bad move.

    Fender flares are milder, fascia is less aggressive, headlights wheels etc. I'm sure you will be able to get a model that looks more like the concept than that preproduction tester

    Jesus christ people, can't you give the car a chance, its not like its sitting on a showroom floor. Its white and on a dirt road for chirst sakes, of course its ganna look dull and bland. Im sure your sport machine sitting in the garage would look wonderful after going through some "testing" on a dirt road. Fucktards.

    It does look a bit different, but it's still a ways off from production.

    Quite a bit can change.
