Dodge Charger Redline

So it's not a really-real model, but the Dodge Charger Redline ($TBA) does do a fine job of showing what your pedestrian sedan could be like with a little help from Mopar. This concept car showcases all three Mopar performance kits for the Charger — Stage I, which includes a full-width carbon fiber chin spoiler, a two-piece body-color grille, 20-inch wheels, and a carbon fiber rear spoiler; Stage II, which includes a cat-back performance exhaust, a front-tower cross-brace and brace caps for increased stability, and high-performance brake linings; the race-oriented Stage III, which includes an aluminum Gen III HO 426 HEMI engine that boosts output to 590 hp while shaving more than 100 lbs. off the weight of the traditional cast-iron version. Unfortunately, the last stage isn't approved for use on public roads, so unless you're going to be spending a lot of time at the track, you'd best look elsewhere for your horsepower fix.

  • Subaru BRZ STI Concept

    Sure, it's still a work in progress, but we'd be more than happy to hop behind the wheel of the Subaru BRZ STI Concept ($TBA) as-is. Developed in collaboration with Toyota, the BRZ STi is a rear-wheel drive sports car, powered by a 2.0L Boxer four-cylinder engine and sporting a carbon fiber roof for reduced weight and a lower center of gravity, as well as a STi-designed lower front grille, hawk eye headlights, and fin-shaped fog lamps. Hit up the 2011 Los Angeles International Auto Show this weekend if you'd like to see it before it retreats back into the development labs, (possibly) never to be seen again.

  • 1969 Holden Hurricane

    Sometimes the future invented by the past is even more exciting than the one we're actually living. The 1969 Holden Hurricane ($TBA) is a perfect example. Originally unveiled at the 1969 Melbourne Motor Show, this sleek ride featured a mid-mounted, 262hp V8 engine boasting advanced components such as the four-barrel carburetor, rear-wheel drive, a glorious fold-forward windshield assembly in lieu of doors, and "futuristic" features like electronic digital instrument displays, a radio with seek capability, automatic temperature control, a rear-vision camera, and a quasi-GPS system called the "Pathfinder". Come to think of it, that sounds an awful lot like the present — only most of our cars aren't this good looking.
