    FEELER - 2008 Magnum SRT8 (the SRT8 unicorn)

    Make: Dodge
    Model: Magnum SRT8
    Year: 2008
    Condition: 2 - Good
    Mileage: 69598

    Price (USD): $50000

    Location: Rochester, Michigan
    Shipping & Pickup:
    Shipping Cost (USD): $

    Item description
    I'm thinking about selling my little piece of history...
    It's 1 of 24 Bright Silver Magnum SRT8s built for the short 2008 model year (a total of just 166 MSRT8s were built in 2008 and only Steel Blue @22 built is rarer than Bright Silver).
    Great pedigree - always owned by Dodge brand executive. Was an early build fast-feedback company car driven by then head of Dodge product planning. Bought in 2008 (and still owned by) another Dodge executive - me. Was my wife's DD / kid-rocket for a decade. We needed a truck for towing a few years ago, so now Maggie sits. Don't want her to get too crunchy here in Michigan - thinking maybe somebody in a dry climate should be the new time capsule keeper.
    Only modification is new wheels/tires (still have originals).
    On the fence about it. Might sell to the right buyer with the right story.
    Note: $50k price because forum master yelled at me - says posts must have price - obviously negotiable!

    Was it driven in the winter? If so any rust starting? Was it smoked in?

    Yes - it was driven year-round with snows in winter. Starting to bubble behind rear wheel arches. One reason I'm thinking to sell now is so it hopefully goes to somewhere dry and doesn't get worse.
    It's never been smoked in and the interior is very nice - almost no wear. Has all the goodies: sunroof, navigation, rear seat video, subwoofer, etc.

    I think I'm going to have to come give you a visit and give the car a look at. I miss my SRT8 Magnum and might just have to try and get another one.
    I'll send you a direct message.

    By his use of the word "unicorn" in the listing, the seller hopes to create the impression that the car is exceptionally rare and highly sought-after.

    2008 was the last production year, with the fewest made.

    Just to correct the record, 2008 Magnum SRT8 "a.k.a. MSRT8" production was 239, not 166. And there were 34 (not 24) in Bright Silver Metallic, and 29 (not 22) in Steel Blue Metallic.

    Of course, the car for sale could still be a real unicorn based on further option breakdown (which we can do exactly with the VIN, or reverse search the installed options to derive the VIN).

    Fun fact: There was only 1 Vehicle Development/Pilot Order Bright Silver Metallic 2008 MSRT8 built that was delivered to the state of Michigan - that VIN ends in 163 and it was built on July 3, 2007. Interestingly, while 163 was a Pilot Vehicle, it was NOT used for Marketing or Public Relations.

    Regardless of how this particular vehicle was equipped, any 08 MSRT8 is a rarity and certainly desirable.

    Nice car – GLWS!
