Travis Pastrana reveals 2012 Dodge Dart livery for Global Rallycross
Apr 04 2012
Dodge and Travis Pastrana are excited to reveal the brand new livery for the Dart that will aid Pastrana in his seven-event campaign this year within Global Rallycross. Wrapped in a blue quintessential Pastrana plaid, the custom-built Dart features a 2.0-liter, 4-cylinder, 16-valve turbo-charged 600-horsepower coupled to a Sedav 4-wheel drive gear box that puts out more than 550 lb.-ft of torque. The aerodynamic and agile Dart is expected to deliver incredible 0 to 60 times as low as 1.9 seconds.
"When I first heard about GRC, I was really interested, and after watching some of the rounds last year and then actually competing at X Games I was hooked! Now to be able to partner with Dodge to field my own program this year is a dream come true,” said Pastrana. “The new Dodge Dart offers the perfect platform for rallycross, and I look forward to putting it on the podium all season long!"
Reid Bigland, President and CEO-Dodge Brand, is excited for the new partnership and for the public to see what the new Dart can do on the track.
"At Dodge, racing is an integral part of our heritage and embodies our competitive spirit, so we're very excited to announce the next chapter in racing for Dodge with our all-new Dodge Dart,” said Bigland. “The new Dart Global Rallycross Championship car with 600 horsepower and driver Travis Pastrana takes our passion for performance to all new heights."
