The Dodge Stealth is most famous for something it never ended up doing. Sound cryptic? Here’s what happened: the Stealth, a Mitsubishi performance coupe sold by Dodge as part of their then-current partnership, was Dodge’s fastest sporty offering and so was going to be the pace car for the Indianapolis 500. However, despite the Dodge nameplate, the Stealth was assembled in Japan, and the public wasn’t enthusiastic about a Japanese car pacing a world-famous American race. Dodge slapped together a pre-production Viper to run the race, and the Stealth went back to its normal role of being a fast, high-tech performance coupe. Perhaps if the American public had read the spec sheet a little more closely, they wouldn’t have been so quick to judge. Mitsubishi’s excellent twin-turbocharged, 3-liter V6 sent 320 horsepower to the ground through a highly advanced all-wheel drive system. With the car’s slippery aerodynamics and handsome styling (Dodge’s corporate look translated well into the sleek coupe), it is a serious performance car that survived a long time under the shadow of its big brother, the Viper. Unfairly overlooked? Take a spin and see for yourself.
