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."
Lexus LF-Gh revealed
Several new images and this video of the Lexus LF-Gh concept car made their
way through the internets today following a release by the automaker. The
car, teased earlier this month by, is set to debut at the New York Auto
Show next week.
A precursor to the 2012 GS, the Lexus Future Grand touring Hybrid (LF-Gh)
is reportedly 4890mm in length by 1870mm wide, making it 40mm x 50mm larger
than the GS. The concept is also said to be 1450mm in height, meaning it
is another 20mm taller than the car it is replacing.
As we previously reported, the LF-Gh will feature LED headlights, unique
tail lighting and a large grille. It is also expected to get a new set of
side sills and a rear diffuser.

We met up with Leh Keen, a professional driver for Alex Job Racing, and his
dad McGrath Keen who asked his son to commission a 993 built by Nakai of
RWB. Hear why a Rauh Welt Porsche appealed to two generations of
Porschephiles and see how it united this father and son in their passion.

We drive the 2014 HEMI Dodge Police Pursuit Charger & test it from 0-60 MPH (again)
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2014 HEMI Dodge Police Pursuit Charger is one
badass looking cop car. You certainly don't want to see this police car in
your rear view mirror. Last year we got to ride in the Dodge Police Pursuit
Charger at Chrysler's Proving Grounds in Michigan. This year Nathan and
Roman got behind the wheel of the 2014 HEMI Dodge Police Pursuit Charger
and played cops and robbers. In another fun and informative TFLcar video we
not only drive the new Charger Pursuit but we test it from 0-60 MPH at sea
level to see if the HEMI gas what it takes to catch up with the bad guys.

2012 Dodge Avenger SXT, Review, Walkaround, Start Up, Test Drive
A decent refresh that gets our award for one of the most improved vehicles
when compared to its previous model. We'd say unless the styling is to your
liking, you have a soft spot for Dodge, or you got it at an attractive
price to check out it's more established and competent rivals.
"The 2012 Dodge Avenger is a fully competitive midsize family sedan, but
the wealth of stronger competitors makes it difficult to recommend."
Super car driver idiots [NO pics, only videos]
I got bored with all the "super car crashes"-videos here on YouTube that
only contained PICTURES, CRAPPY MUSIC or/and clips of pure racing cars on
official racing events.
This compilation DOES NOT include pure racing cars on official racing
events - only real life FAILures on the STREETS, made by people with more
money than driving skills...
(Though, even the best car drivers can crash too of course.)
Notice 1: The "Dodge Ram" may not be a super car, but still it's a SRT10
with the 8.3L Viper V10 which produces 510hp. Pretty super for a pick up,
don't you think? It has more power than several of the cars in this video.
The intention with this video was to show that skills doesn't come with
Notice 2: Tire is the preferred spelling in the U.S. and Canada. Tyre is
preferred in most varieties of English outside North America. And I'm from
Sweden. So please think outside your box (country), you who claims "tyre"
is incorrect spelling.
