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."
Range Rover Spirito DiVino -- an SUV with an embedded wine bar
Here is the Range Rover Spirito DiVino (a pun which means both 'divine' and
'of wine'), and SUV with an embedded wine bar which Range Rover brought to
the Verona Vinitaly 2011 wine even last weekend.
The 313 PS (230 kW / 309 bhp) Range Rover Vogue SE 4.4 TD V8 is fitted with
two refrigerated cabinets installed in the rear luggage compartment which
can store up to 12 bottles of wine. The Range Rover DiVino's refrigeration
unit can be recharged via a dedicated solar panel or by a power cord
plugged into an external outlet.
There is also a set of wine glasses and the exterior finish stays with the
wine theme with the appropriate wine-colored body.
The creation is a partnership between Land Rover Italia, Aznom and the wine
publication Spirito DiVino.
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.
The rear-wheel drive four-seater will debut on April 19 in New York. You
can find out more about the car in the press release below.
2012 Dodge Avenger R/T announced for NY debut
Dodge has released the first details about the Avenger R/T, ahead of its
debut at the New York Auto Show.
Designed to appeal to younger drivers, the R/T is distinguished by a
body-color grille, tined headlights, and exclusive 18-inch alloy wheels.

Power comes from a 3.6-liter V6 engine that produces 283 hp (211 kW / 287
PS) and 260 lb-ft (352 Nm) of torque. It is mated exclusively to a
six-speed automatic transmission, which enables the car to have a fuel
economy rating of 19 mpg city / 29 mpg highway.
While none of this sounds terribly exciting, Dodge says the car offers
"exceptional driving dynamics" thanks to a sport-tuned suspension with
stiffer spring rates and a larger rear stabilizer bar.
No word on pricing, but look for the 2012 Avenger R/T to start arriving at
2012 Chevrolet Malibu teaser
Here is some more teaser material from GM on the upcoming 2013 Chevrolet
This time it's a video and we get to see a camouflaged Malibu sitting idly
by while spy photographer Jim Dunne explains the tactics of his trade.
It seems, though, that Chevy has no problem with spy photographers for this
next-generation Malibu and will take all the attention it can get for the
new mid-sized model.
Co-opting a spy photographer to appear in your video is a clever move but
the Malibu better measure up against the competition, models such as the
Nissan Altima and the Toyota Camry, when it comes out.
The 2013 Chevrolet Malibu will be unveiled at the Auto Shanghai motor show
next week and at the New York auto show a couple of days later.
The model goes into production in January 2012 with sales starting later

The 2000 Dodge Avenger Returns: Attempt to Start and Drive w/ Underlying Idling Issues
Well consider this as an update video of the 2000 Avenger from my videos
last year. We got this back in on trade and come to realize that it might
have a bad oxygen issue. I start it up and have trouble getting it to run
and drive but am able to in the end. I also tour the car inside and out,
showing the car for those who have not seen those older videos on the car.
I also rev it up and accelerate to check out the sound and see if I could
pin point whether the engine was running rough. Weirdly enough it runs
great! Just acts weird sometimes. Any tips? Post a comment below!
