Dodge Avenger rally car unveiled

The Dodge Avenger rally car was unveiled recently and this video shows the unveiling going on. The Avenger rallycar is just a Avenger R/T outfitted with everythng it will need to compete in rally races.

I never imagined a Avenger being as cool as this one is, i think i found my inspiration.

To celebrate Mopar's tie-up with Magneti Marelli, Dodge has unveiled an Avenger rally car.

Essentially a one-off concept, the car has a Brilliant Black exterior with a massive rear spoiler, a lowered sport suspension (which reduces the ride height by approximately 1.5 inches) and 18-inch alloy wheels with Pirelli P-Zero tires.

Inside, the stripped-out cabin features carbon fiber door panels, a fully programmable instrument cluster, OMP racing seats, an eight-point roll cage, and a fire extinguisher to prevent those unfortunate parade incidents.

Under the hood, power is provided by a 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 that has been outfitted with a cold-air intake and a high performance exhaust system. This enables the engine to produce 300 hp (224 kW / 304 PS) instead of the usual 283 hp (211 kW / 287 PS).

According to Pietro Gorlier, President and CEO of Mopar, "Our companies worked closely together to bring this vehicle to life in a joint build that utilizes proven, quality-tested performance parts and accessories from Mopar and Magneti Marelli. We will gauge reaction to this vehicle and determine which parts will go into production."

hard to believe all dodge avenger rally car engine modifications consist of are a cold-air intake system & a high performance exhaust system. Gutting the avenger interior can help it move like the rally car but thats not a practical move for most of us here. I expected some work on the engine, guess not.
