(from Startech Press
Release) STARTECH STARSTER is the name of a new concept
car that celebrates its world debut at the Frankfurt International
Auto Show IAA 2007, a concept car that manages to bridge the gap
between classic old-school and modern designs. STARTECH (www.startech.de)
has developed this concept car based on the new Dodge Avenger.
The sedan is painted a pearlescent ivory color with matte-orange
contrasts. Details such as the STARTECH STARSTER billboard stripes
on the rear sidewalls and the color-contrasted hood design are
references to the American muscle cars of the Seventies. Theyre
accompanied by spectacular body modifications that make the Avenger
one of the most striking representatives of its class.
Clear, dynamic lines characterize the design of the sporty STARSTER
front apron. Large air dams ensure an optimal supply of cooling air
to radiators and front brakes. Stylized bumper horns emphasize the
retro design further.
Just as prominent is the new STARTECH headlamp design that combines
state-of-the-art LED technology with the distinctive Dodge
crosshairs. A muscle car hood scoop provides cooling air to the
Front and rear fender flares on the STARSTER give the four-door a
more muscular appearance and create the space necessary for mounting
an extreme tire/wheel combination. The concept car features polished
STARTECH Monostar IV five-spoke wheels in size 9Jx22 with size
245/30 R 22 tires on the front axle, and size 10.5Jx22 wheels with
size 295/25 R 22 tires in the rear.
The rear of the STARSTER was also redesigned. The modifications
include an acrylic trunk lid molding that incorporates an innovative
taillight unit with LED lights. The rear apron features the
seamlessly integrated tailpipes of the stainless-steel sport exhaust
The STARSTER captivates not only with its unusual visual details but
also and foremost with its technology geared towards maximum driving
fun. Top-of-the-line model is a 2.4-liter (146 cu. in.)
four-cylinder turbocharged engine with variable valve timing and a
maximum power output of 340 PS (335 hp) / 250 kW at 6,400 rpm and a
peak torque of 400 Nm (295 lb-ft) at 3,600 rpm.
Power is transferred to the front wheels via a modified five-speed
manual gearbox and a locking differential. Performance of the
STARTECH STARSTER is comparable to that of classic American muscle
cars: 5.6 seconds from rest to 100 km/h (62 mph) and a top speed of
265 km/h (165 mph).
To keep the performance potential under safe control the STARTECH
engineers spared no cost or effort to develop suspension components
and brakes that better even this ample power: The height-adjustable
coil-over sport suspension features selectable damper settings and
an individual ride height lowering by up to approx. 45 millimeters
The STARTECH high-performance brake system features six-piston
aluminum fixed calipers and vented 380 x 35 millimeter (15.0 x 1.4
inches) discs on the front axle. The rear axle is equipped with 360
x 24 millimeter (14.2 x 0.9 inches) discs and four-piston calipers.
Together they easily dominate even the most enthusiastic of driving
The interior of the STARSTER also presents a perfect blend of
classic old-school elements and modern materials. A fully leather
interior, color-coordinated with the exterior, sports an upholstery
design derived from classic muscle cars. The leather flooring alone
with its waffle-pattern stitching uses more than 1.2 kilometers
(0.75 miles) of high-quality thread.
A number of components found in the STARSTER concept car will be
included in the exclusive STARTECH customization program for the
