Dodge Performance Heritage: Stealth R/T Twin Turbo

 

When we reflect on Dodge’s performance legacy today, we instantly recall the great cars of the classic muscle era – Chargers and Super Bees, Street Hemis and Six Packs.  But actually, there’s an unbroken chain of Dodge performance models that stretches to the present day. For example, here’s the 1991-96 Dodge Stealth R/T Twin Turbo. 

 

Produced in partnership with Mitsubishi, the Dodge Stealth was one of the most technically sophisticated sports cars of its time. The standard Stealth R/T was powered by a double-overhead cam V6 with 24 valves and electronic fuel injection – a highly advanced engine for 1991. But the Twin Turbo model raised the ante even further, sporting intercooled twin turbochargers and a complex all-wheel drive system.  It was the kitchen sink of performance vehicles in the early ‘90s, offering virtually every new technical advance then coming into the market in one eye-grabbing package.

 

With all the cutting-edge technology on board, including four-wheel steering, active exhaust, and electronic suspension, the R/T Turbo rivaled many exotic European sports cars in features, and often in performance as well.  But unlike the expensive exotics, the Stealth was available at any neighborhood Dodge dealer at an attainable price, as the enthusiast press quickly recorded.  Today the R/T Twin Turbo is considered a cult classic among collectors, who scoop up clean examples when they get the chance.

 

The car pictured above is an interesting historical footnote in itself. For 1991 the Stealth R/T Turbo was selected as the official pace car for the Indianapolis 500, but it never actually served in that capacity. Ultimately, a prototype Dodge Viper performed the pace car duties on race day that year, while the car shown here served as an Indy 500 Festival vehicle and then resided at the Walter P. Chrysler Museum for many years.

    That Car is awesome to see in person. It was really ahead of it’s time, considering what other cars were on the road at the time, and a corvette killer to boot! I’d argue the attainable price, but I guess compared to the exotics it was. It does not surprise me they are and will be collectable. Even today they can still hold their own in style, performance, and technology. It was supposed to be the Indy 500 pace car, but people complained that it wasn’t an “American Car”,
    and so it was pulled in favour of the Dodge Viper Prototype. My, oh my, how times have changed since then. Honda engines in Indy and Toyota in Nascar. It seems today, if you are not American, then you are a shoe-in for anything American. Who figured that today the imports would be the ones driving the whole American Automobile Industry?

    I think that Dodge should take another stab at it and bring the Stealth back in all its forms, ES, RT, and RT/TT.

    Stealths are definetly nice cars, I have a 95′, definetly my fav year. 3000gts aren’t bad either, I just personally can’t stand the front headlights and “wide” body look. But I really like the early 3000s with the pop-up lights. Nice post btw.
