Dodge Avenger rally car unveiled

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."

2011 Dodge Avenger Mopar Rally Car
When we think of rally cars, the Subaru Impreza and Ford Focus immediately come to mind. At no point does the Dodge Avenger enter our thoughts, but that didn't stop Team Pentastar from building its own dirt-ready rally sedan. Chrysler wanted to celebrate a new business partnership with Fiat subsidiary Magneti Marelli by building a collaborative vehicle that combines the talents of the Italian components maker and Chrysler's iconic Mopar team. The result is an Avenger that can handle more than America's urban jungle. Magneti Marelli and Mopar spent a few weeks modifying a stock Avenger Heat with a 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 underhood. The Avenger chassis remains intact, but a Magneti Marelli suspension was added for improved handling, lowering the Avenger by 1.5 inches. Brakes were upgraded to include 14.25-inch front rotors and 13.5-inch rear rotors, and a rear brake rally package with a hand-operated brake was included. And you can't have a rally car with stock power, so the teams added a Mopar cold-air intake, Cat-Black Exhaust with Magneti Marelli tips and a high-performance Engine Control Unit. The result of these changes is a V6 with at least 300 horsepower. That's not a monumental increase over the standard 283 horsepower, and the six-sped autostick transmission is stock, though unique paddle-gear shifts were added, along with a Mopar/Magneti Marelli shift knob. Finally, a tower-to-tower cross-car brace was added for stability.
