Gorgeous!
 
Of course it's got the Hemi.
340 horse.
What's your little Subie got?
Also, it has Electronic Traction Control - little to no spin - and the Mercedes semi-automatic transmission that I can put in first gear and will automatically upshift at peak torque.

Here are the specs:
horsepower: 300@6000 rpm
torque: 300 lb/ft@4000 rpm
weight ~3250lbs (your Magnum weighs ~4100lbs)
0-60mph; 4.7 sec
1/4 mile ~13.0/1@99-102mph

The center differential is adjustable too. I can set it on auto and let the computer distribute traction or I can adjust the torque split percentage between the front/rear axles from 50/50 to 35/65.

As far as handling, it has so much grip, it's not even funny. Slow entry speed on curves but phenomenal exit speed. It will also handle on a wet/gravel/dirt road about as well as it will on dry tarmac.

Sounds like a fun car.
I'd love to race you!
(but it's STILL not cool. Those Studebakers are cool!

I like the bus except that it's a statistical guarantee that at least one wierdo will be on it.

Sometimes, even another one besides me. I do hate pepper spray. It makes my face feel like I need a salad.

It's not so bad in Finland. Unless you got to or from the center at times when the freaks gather there.

Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution

What I like about these cars:

Both of these cars are inexpensive and cheap, but these cars have other things about them that make them interesting and different from your regular sports car.

The Lotus Elise Exige here is a pure sports car. It's tiny, has a high-revving engine (and it's under 200 hp) and yet manages to do 0-60 in under 4 seconds. The car itself has a curb weight of a scant 2,015 lbs. Drivers say it's uncomfortable, loud and is nimble as hell. It drives like a street-legal go-kart, basically. The car gets 30 mpg on the highway too.

The Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X shown here has something like 300 hp, is pretty small in size, has sophisticated AWD, is a four-door sedan that can pack a family and beat virtually any car on the road in a drag race. Does 0-60 in about 4 seconds. It also handles extremely well and has tremendous grip because of its AWD system. Man, I'd like to have an Evolution.
 
Finns appear retarded. We've established on another thread that this is of no consequence. So it's just an observation.
 
Look upon a gorgeous piece of auto-engineering and applaud!

(absolutely nothing to do with its specs, it's just sexy)
 
Yes, that's a bit retarded too. Makes a nice change though, in a way, rather than just pages and pages and pages and of boring writing.
