Default Chrysler in V8 Supercars?

This might become even more interesting :

In lieu of the M100 tour, it looks like we might be headed to Clipsal. Not quite Germany, but we're planning that for 2013...

FINALLY!

Chrysler have been sniffing around this for 4 years BTW which is why 300C SRT's have been showing up as pace cars at the Indy and V8's.

Toyota have also been showing an interest at running their Lexus products but I doubt they have the budget anymore.

Personally id like to see the return of an expanded field and the return of Homologation specials as Mitsubishi have some interesting stuff to play with that we may not see here in Australia without an external driving force.

BTW, anyone who has ever sat in a 300C will have noticed a certain low rent Benz familiarity as the S I and S II 300's share a fair bit of yesteryear Mercedes technology, fixtures and fittings not unlike (Dare I say it) Ssangyong :-)

Hey MICHEL , few years back while Daimler and Chrysler was still join venture they both gain from this partnership. it is possible that Mercedes gave them few models to adopt future designs , they now do the same with FIAT - LANCIA brand was crowned the CHRYSLER products in Europe i think this is one advantage of the merge .

I bet you can say this on this pic

It is CHRYSLER 1946 WINDSOR no enlounce of either FIAT nore BENZ but i love it , just saw one just like this couple of days in a movie DIRTY DANCING , HAVANA NIGHTS
I'm TEMPTED TO BUY IT but gonna be a huge challange.
