Jeez, that was on the edge A LOT. I know the 'Ring is bumpy, but damn...no fire suit either is rare for a manufacturer run...

That definitely was intense; felt like I was in the car with him. That guy can drive his butt off....he almost lost it a couple of times but held it.

If rumors are correct the next Challenger or Cuda will be based on this chassis. Good times.

If the rumors are true..this is what the next gen Charger and Challenger could be based on, with a similar but downrated powerplant (and RWD obv)

Given this car has stuff a Charger/Challenger wouldn't have (carbon fiber roof/hood, etc) ..they probably wouldn't be as light, however with this platform a 3,700lb Challenger isn't outside the realm of possibilities, same for the Charger.

I'm very curious to see what the next Challenger/Cuda will look like. Since they're coming to the end of the road for the current model with all the package updates and so forth, the new model should be coming into view within a year's time. Dodge is very serious about ensuring they make a car for their target customers which leads me to believe that the next model is going to be bad ass as well. Hell they might even keep the current Challenger/Charger as is with other tweaks and just introduce the Cuda as the lighter sports car model. Now that would be the stuff, talk about options. Ok..I just got too excited...

Some might say he was "Scootin"..lmao. I would have asked him to let me out after about the 3 minute mark. "I'll walk from here..thanks."

Alfa Romeo has produced some fantastic cars over the years. Its been some time since Fiat absorbed them from the Italian government that they have been allowed to produce anything worthwhile. Probably since they last dominated the DTM series with the outstanding 155 DTM race car. Good job by Alfa.

Here is a clip of the 155 from a hillclimb.
