    Dodge Razor(TM) Concept Car Adds Performance Through Purity
    DETROIT, Jan. 8-- A sprint to 60 miles per hour in less than
    six seconds, top speed greater than 140 miles per hour, a six-speed manual
    transmission, rear-wheel drive and an engine displacement of 2.4 liters.
    These specifications can only mean one thing -- less weight, more fun.
    Unveiled at the 2002 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, the
    Dodge Razor concept car embodies the purest of sports coupe design:
    aspirational, emotional and inspirational. Through efficient design, Dodge
    Razor cuts right to what is vital for enhanced driving pleasure.
    The Dodge Razor concept car is a joint effort between the Chrysler Group
    design studios in Auburn Hills, Mich., and Carlsbad, Calif. Dodge Razor's
    exterior was developed by Akino Tsuchiya and Kevin Verduyn, while its interior
    was executed by Chris Schuttera and John Sodano. They were inspired by
    classic European sports cars of the 1960s, which brought a modern minimalist
    design philosophy to the project. Searching for a name that reflected the
    car's energy and attitude, the Chrysler Group approached Razor USA to form a
    licensing partnership with the trendsetting and youthful Razor brand.
    "Dodge Razor has a simple shape with every line offering an abundance of
    emotion and purpose," said Tsuchiya. "Razor's dramatic proportions scream
    'I'm bold, I'm powerful, I'm Dodge'. The in-your-face 'Orange Slice' body
    color reflects the same attitude." Adds Verduyn: "Working off an all-new
    platform, we could create extreme proportions. The long hood, high sills,
    wide body, narrow greenhouse and low center of gravity all indicate secure,
    protective performance."
    To keep the Dodge Razor affordable should it ever reach production, many
    'off-the-shelf' corporate suspension and underbody components were used.
    While the six-speed manual transmission was developed in Stuttgart, Germany,
    the engine is an upgraded version of Chrysler Group's 2.4-liter inline DOHC
    four-cylinder, now with a turbocharger and intercooler. The engine develops
    250 bhp. (187 kW) and 230 lb.-ft. (312 Nm). Aimed at young driving
    enthusiasts, the Razor concept was designed with a targeted sticker price of
    US $14,500.
    Reflecting the design attitude of the popular Razor kick scooter, the
    design of the Dodge Razor suggests forward motion even when the concept is
    parked on an auto show turntable. It seems to be leaping ahead, with its rear
    wheels larger than the already massive front wheels. Its signature Dodge
    crosshair grille sits solidly on the front spoiler, while the exhaust tips are
    incorporated into the rear air deflector.
    "We are proud to join forces with the Chrysler Group on a car that
    complements Razor's lineup of youthful, high-tech products," said Carlton
    Calvin, president of Razor USA LLC. "The Razor philosophy is about
    revolutionizing classic products with beautiful design and technological
    innovation and we are thrilled to see a similar philosophy reflected in the
    Dodge Razor."
    True to minimalist form, 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. "This project really is about the
    power of purpose and purity," said Verduyn.
    The same holds true for the interior. It 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. "We feel passionate about keeping it simple and
    honest," said Sodano. "Razor has a focused driver's interior, enhancing the
    experience of raw power as only a sports car can."
    Packaged with the most necessary performance tools and functions,
    including two orange Razor scooters, and providing customers the opportunity
    to make its interior entirely their own, Dodge Razor offers driving excitement
    to go.

    gefällt mir zwar nicht so, aber über Geschmack lässt sich ja bekanntlich...
    Außerdem soll das Wägele ja eine Spitzengeschwindigkeit von mehr als 225km/h schaffen. Preislich soll der Razor umgerechnet knapp über 16.300 € liegen, falls er überhaupt produziert wird und auf den eurpäischen Markt kommt ;)
