Dodge wants its new subcompact model to become viral, and so today it has pulled the wraps off a racing version called the 2013 Dart RallyCross. The rally car will be raced starting this May, and it will make its official debut at the 2012 New York Motor Show, on April 4th.
Details are somewhat limited, but the Dart has reportedly been fitted with a turbocharged 16-valve 2.0-liter four-cylinder producing 600 hp, which are sent to all four wheels. This, in combination with a AWD system, means the Dodge will now accelerate to 60 mph (98 km/h) in a scarcely believable 1.9 seconds.
As driver, Dodge’s SRT Motorsports have signed a deal with 28-year old Travis Pastrana.

The 2012 Global RallyCross Championship will feature seven races:
  • May 26 – Charlotte Motor Speedway
  • June 10 – Texas Motor Speedway
  • June 30 – X Games, Los Angeles   
  • July 1 – X Games, Los Angeles
  • July 14 – New Hampshire Motor Speedway
  • September 1 – TBD

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
