2013 Dodge Charger Daytona to debut at L.A. auto show - Autoweek TV with Andrew Stoy
Also in this episode: Bernie Ecclestone wants a bigger Formula One presence in the United States, and Mopar fans can do some racing of their own with the upcoming Dodge Charger Daytona.
-- We've got weekend race results from Brazil.
-- Big Bernie says he wants more American F1 events.
-- And Dodge is putting the Daytona name on a new Charger.
Hi, I'm Andy and this is a Monday edition of Autoweek TV. We've wrapped up the leftovers so let's get back to cars -- that includes race results with spoilers, so if you've DVR'ed the action, push pause now. We'll give you a moment...
Sebastian Vettel took the F1 Championship on Sunday in Brazil. The 25-year-old German came in sixth in the race, but it was enough to lock up his third title. He's the youngest driver ever to accomplish the triple feat -- Michael Shumacher was 31 before he made it to three championships.
Red Bull also took the constructors championship, with wins from Webber and Vettel all season. Ferrari's Fernando Alonso and Lotus driver Kimi Raikkonen came in second and third in the driver's championship standings.
For more on Vettel's win:
On the subject of Formula One, head honcho Bernie Ecclestone said he'd like to have three races in the United States and fewer in Europe.
New Jersey is on the calendar for next year, as is Russia. Deals for races in Thailand and Mexico are also in the works, which would eat away at European dates. Events in Belgium and Hungary, along with the two Spanish races, could be on the chopping block.
Full article with Ecclestone's comments:
Dodge is resurrecting the Daytona name on a special Charger sedan for the LA Auto Show.
The custom Charger will offer Mopar fans a spoiler, hood stripes, roof wrap and custom interior. "Daytona" is spelled out on the back fenders, and the body color palette is silver, blue, black or white.
Output for the standard Hemi V8 is unchanged at 370 hp, but buyers do get exclusivity: Only 2500 Charger Daytonas will be built for the United States. But be prepared to shell out about $3,000 for the option.

2014 Ford Fiesta ST to debut at L.A. auto show - Autoweek TV with Jake Lingeman
Also in this episode: Get ready for the hopped-up Ford Fiesta ST, and
Ferrari F12 owners can tune their way to higher performance.
-- The Hennessey Venom gets more bite.
-- The Focus ST celebrates a baby brother.
-- And it's time for the Ferrari F12 tuning kits to start rolling out.
Hi I'm Jake with a Tuesday edition of Autoweek TV. Let's get rolling.
Hennessey Performance Engineering is taking the next step with its Venom
hypercar, introducing the Venom GT2 on Monday. The Venom GT2 uses a
Corvette-sourced 7-liter engine with a Lotus chassis.
The GT2 tune will put out 1,500 hp. That's 300 more than the "regular"
Venom GT. Other improvements include a double bubble roof for more
headroom, new headlights and a new front end treatment. The GT2 will cost
$1.25 million when it debuts next year.
Details on the Venom GT2:
The L.A. Auto Show is later this week, but we have the most exciting reveal
from Ford right now. It's the Fiesta ST, the baby brother of the five-door
Focus ST. It will house a turbocharged
1.6-liter EcoBoost engine making 197
hp and 214 lb-ft of torque.
The Fiesta ST will also get quicker steering than the standard model and a
stiffer suspension. Pricing hasn't been announced yet but if it follows the
Focus ST pricing logic, it should come in at about $18,000.
For more details on the 2014 Ford Fiesta ST:
Wheels and More, a tuner out of Baesweiler, Germany has created a tuning
package for the Ferrari F12 Berlinetta. It ups the horsepower from 740 to 785,
adds a hand-crafted Exhaust with
remote valve buttons and lowers the car a few clicks.
New wheels are also installed with Pirelli rubber at the corners. Tuning a
halo Ferrari isn't cheap. The engine tune costs about $12,000, the Exhaust is $6,500 and the wheels are a
breathtaking 17 grand. Of course that's all on top of the Ferrari F12's
$315,000 base price.

Joel Ewanick is headed to Fisker - Autoweek TV with Rory Carroll
Also in this episode: BMW hopes a new shirt will unite 1 Series M-Coupe
owners, and Hyundai brings a fixed-gear bicycle-inspired Veloster concept
to the LA Auto Show.
-- Joel Ewanick is headed to Fisker.
-- BMW's releasing a new...shirt.
-- And Hyundai's bringing a rather unfortunate concept to LA.
I'm Rory, it's Wednesday, let's do the news.
It seems like just yesterday that we brought you news of former GM
marketing chief Joel Ewanick's firing from GM.
Today, he's going to Fisker. After a short stint heading GM's marketing
operation, Ewanick's GM career went down in flames after a sponsorship deal
with one of England's hottest sports franchises, the Manchester United
soccer team, engulfed him in controversy.
Recent reports say that Ewanick will bring his fiery demeanor to Fisker as
head of global sales and marketing.
More on Joel Ewanick:
BMW's 1 Series M-Coupe is undoubtedly one of the coolest cars to come out
of that company in years. If you're one of the diminutive super-coupe's
6,309 lucky owners, but you're worried that people won't be able to
recognize you by your haircut, Bluetooth headset or Piloti shoes, worry no
more. The boys in Bavaria have developed a new $115 polo shirt that will
make it clear to everyone that it's wearer owns a 1 Series M-Coupe.
The shirt will also have the owners name embroidered down its left sleeve
so that it's visible as the owner cruises up and down his town's main drag
listening to dubstep with his arm out the window. One would assume it's
possible to pop the shirt's collar.
BMW says they want to see owners "recognize each other in the street, grab
hands, and talk about that special car." We're not sure what they mean by
And finally, that unfortunate concept from Hyundai. If there's one thing
that always works, it's taking something that's hip and/or maybe
subversive, and using it to sell a mass market product. It's even better if
you do it after the hip thing has been turned into a Hollywood flop, much
to the chagrin of its original devotees.
Hyundai doing just that with their Veloster C3 Roll Top concept, which is
apparently designed to cruelly mock those who ride fixed gear bicycles. Did
they use the words urban, lifestyle and sustainable in the press-release?
Oh yeah, several times. We're going to see about getting it posted at
FixedGearGallery.com so we can see what their readers think of it.

Ford three-cylinder engine slated for America - Autoweek TV with Andrew Stoy
Also in this episode: The first U.S.-market Ferrari F12 sells for $1.125
million, and the East Coast collector car community comes together in the
way of Sandy.
-- Ford announces a three-cylinder for the American market.
-- The first Ferrari F12 sells for more than a million dollars.
-- And East Coast car collectors gather after Sandy.
I'm Andy, and this is a Tuesday edition of Autoweek TV. Let's get to it.
All you Geo Metro owners who've been holding out for another three-cylinder
car, get ready: Your wait is about to end.
Ford has announced it will bring its turbocharged, direct-injected EcoBoost 1-liter three-cylinder to the U.S. next
year in the 2014 Fiesta. Fuel efficiency is expected to be 40 mpg or
better, yet this little engine still turns out 123 hp and 148 lb-ft of
We've driven a European Ford Focus with the 1-liter EcoBoost three-cylinder, and the experience was
surprisingly good. We expect it to be even more fun in the smaller Fiesta,
and we'll bring you a complete road test as soon as we get our hands on
For more on the 2014 Ford Fiesta:
The first Ferrari F12 Berlinetta available in the U.S. has gone for $1.125
million. If it's yours now, congratulations.
The F12 was auctioned Sunday at the U.S. Grand Prix in Austin, with
proceeds scheduled to benefit victims of Hurricane Sandy. Bidding started
at $315,000 and went up quickly from there.
We had a little competition of our own among our site commenters to see who
could get closest to the final sales price -- turns out we had a tie, so
Derek J. and Steve C., keep an eye out for some Autoweek swag coming your
More on the Ferrari:
Speaking of Sandy, there are signs life is returning to normal -- even
among the collector car community.
Last weekend, enthusiasts from all over New Jersey gathered at a Porsche,
Rolls and Bentley dealership in Parsippany to share war stories and engage
in some much needed camaraderie.
It wasn't just exotics either -- several hundred cars got together
DeLoreans, a '77 Camaro
and even a 1912 Ford. It's great to see enthusiasts pulling together in the
face of a situation like this, and we wish everyone on the East Coast a
continued speedy recovery.

1968 Charger / 1969 Daytona - /BIG MUSCLE Garage
The 1968 Dodge Charger and the 1969 Dodge Daytona. Two cars based off the
same platform with very different personalities. These two old sleds are

the reason that BIG MUSCLE exists today. These are not show ponies,
cruisers or weekend projects, but two warhorses that have been run in some
of the toughest long distance and performance events in the United States.
Built for reliability, power and performance, they are not technological
marvels, but old school resto-mods that have been updated for one reason
and one reason only - to put smiles on the faces of all those who see them.

2012 Dodge Charger Test Drive & Car Review
http://www.autobytel.com/dodge/charger/2012/?id=32972 The 2012 Dodge
Charge represents the second generation and with it comes a nice facelift.
The 2012 Charger has a much better looking front end including cool
headlights and grille. The car looks sleeker and meaner compared to the
previous model. The suspension has been completely reworked. In fact the
2012 Dodge Charger is essentially brand new from the ground up. When you
opt for the more expensive Charger models, you get a nice big Hemi engine
and cool appearance package that includes gigantic 20 inch chrome rims.
The 2012 Dodge Charger is a real muscle car that sports a V-8 engine and
RWD. Now there are 3 different trim levels and the base model costs
$29,496. This SE model comes with a 3.6 liter V-6 that makes 292 horsepower and 260 lb-ft. of
torque while getting 18 MPG in the city and 27 MPG on the highway. What's
great about the base V-6 model is that you can have the cool sporty muscle
car look for a reasonable price and the engine is no slouch either!
But step up to the Hemi V-8 engine and things start to get interesting.
The 2012 Dodge Charger R/T starts at just under $30k and comes packing a
370 horsepower 5.7
liter V-8 Hemi engine. The Charger R/T gets 16 MPG in the city and 25 MPG
on the highway. The big daddy model is the SRT-8 which gets an even larger
engine that displaces 6.4 liters and produces a whopping 470 horsepower and 470 lb-ft. of
torque! This car gets 14 MPG in the city and 23 MPG on the highway but who
cares when you can out accelerate any other sedan on the road.
The new 2012 Dodge Charger not only looks the part of a 4-door muscle car,
it has the power to back it up. The Charger is a great example of what a
muscle car used to be and it sets the bar for what a 4-door muscle car
