Why let Miata, Solstice and Sky have the market to themselves? Here's the Dodge Demon concept roadster.
[ Music ] ^M00:00:03 >> Small cheap roadsters are hot right now. After letting the Maida own the category for what, 15 years the Americans now want a piece. So along came the Pontiac Solstice and the Saturn Sky and now the Dodge Demon. This concept looks pretty finished and not very outlandish. So we expect production is a reality. Under the hood a 2.4 liter inline four with about a 170 horsepower puts that power out through rear wheel drive and a six speed manual all good for zero to 60 in about eight seconds. Those climate control knobs appear to be stolen, purchased from general motors. The interior's perhaps the most handsome in its class. And we also spotted a clean double din slot that's a relief that makes this car hopefully easy to mod with an aftermarket rig like a Pioneer Avic for example. We also are going to hold out hope that the edgy my gig system as seen in the Sebring might be seen in this little car. One option to get it to market cheap might be to have it built in china by Cherry a partnership that Chrysler is just now cementing. ^M00:01:10 [ Music ]
