Dodge Razor...YES Please!

Tue Dec 10, 2002 6:27 am

Guys,
This is one American CAR (trucks, if I ever get one will of course be American) that I would love to get my hands on once they make it.

I think it's cool that there will be no radio or any of the other bs...It's a drivers car, and it can be made cheaper then having to install radio, other stuff. And the target of around $14k really makes it a very attractive car.

All info can be found here...http://www.allpar.com/model/concepts/dodge-razor.html
"Hard core muscle enthusiasts can relax - it might not have a V8, but it doesn't need one. The rear wheel drive Dodge Razor hits 60 mph in under six seconds, goes faster than 140 miles per hour, and has a six-speed manual. The 2.4 liter turbo engine, also used in the Neon SRT-4 - which is equally fast - motorvates this new concept car.

To keep the Dodge Razor affordable should it ever reach production, many 'off-the-shelf' corporate suspension and underbody components were used. Germany is of course supplying the six-speed manual, but the engine is Chrysler's own, with an intercooled turbo and 250 horsepower (230 lb-ft of torque).

The targeted price is an amazing $14,500.

Dodge Razor's only ornamentations are the chrome bumpers, the racing-style billet-aluminum gas cap, the classic door handles and mirrors and the jewel-like lamp design.

Like the Road Runner - a moniker which we can only hope will be applied to the production version - the Razor offers the necessities for driving, nothing more. No power windows or mirrors, no radio or leather power seats, no frills whatsoever. Dodge Razor offers its two occupants lightweight, competition-style seats, four-point racing harnesses, storage behind their seats and the pure joy of driving. "Razor's interior is like a clean canvas. Our vision is that you would be able to get additional features through MOPAR to paint your ideal driving setting," said interior designer Schuttera.

The Dodge Razor's instrument cluster has an integrated tachometer/speedometer with analog reading of the revs and a digital read-out of the speed. This compact unit is flanked by easy-to-read gauges for temperature/oil pressure and fuel/battery. The interior is finished in body color and extruded aluminum."

Looks like a rip off of the TT and that renault roadster thing.

looks really ugly, I especially dislike the really square back end, not nice at all  Sad.

and whats with the 50's dash? Its not like the modernized it or anything or even attempted to make it look modern, it just looks like it was from the 50's. Neraaahhghhhhhhhhhh..........

The rearside picture is enough for me... really looks like a tractor.

Give me a TT anyday. But this ? Yeark.

I'd actually liken the styling to be more like an old MG Midget myself. The tail end has some very strong cues from the 1968 Dodge Charger, the interior from an early 60s Dodge, front clip still looks a lot like an MG Midget. Guys don't bitch... every car is essentially a copy of another car.

It has been a VERY long time since anybody has dared to produce and sell a balls out high performance car that was cheap. Last one was probably the Plymouth Road Runner.

hmm.....
We're talking almost 35k for a Audi TT...15k for the Razor.

You can't compare the two...Only in the looks department

And it's a pure drivers car, no radio, no power anything...It's a fun machine.

Does it come with a Razor Scooter in the trunk for when the engine inevitably quits?

Check out the Razor logo on the side of the car...it was copied right off the Razor scooter. Uhh, I'll buy the Civic anyday over that...
