CMC is excited to have this rad 1991 Dodge Stealh Twin Turbo in our
showroom. Garage kept from new and only driven 44125 miles, this
car will surely appreciate in value. With only 3016 built, not many
are in this condition today.
Named Stealth by Chrysler, the car used a familiar four-wheel drive
setup which came with its modifed Mitsubshi Galant plaform. It also
shares the suspension and wheelbase of the Galant, which is also
the same as setup the Elipse/Talon. Aside from the chassis, much of
the Stealth is entirely new. It's styling is the most evident
difference, which is anything but subtle.
The Stealth came in three distinct models. Driven only by the front
wheels, were the Stealth ES and Stealth RT. They served as entry
level sports cars. Its the twin-turbo, all-wheel-drive RT Turbo
which distinguished the Stealth as a supercar.
As launched in 1991, the Stealth was a very exciting. It was packed
with features that were only offered on Supercars of the era. What
made the Sealth appealing was its price. At $33 000, is was priced
in the sports car segment, with direct competition from the Toyota
Supra, Chevrolet Corvette, Mazda RX-7 and Nissan 300ZX.
Highlighting the Stealth, is a turbocharged engine which powers all
four wheels. The 60-degree V6 has 4-valves per cylinder, dual
over-head cams and a variable induction system. Twin intercooled
TD04 turbchargers force air into each bank of cylinders.
The engine is placed transversely in the engine bay, hinting at the
car's front-wheel drive derivatives. It distributes power to all
four wheels though a Getrag-designed transmission which works with
viscous-coupling system. Under normal state, the viscous coupling
distributes the 55 percent of the power to the rear-wheels. The
system can alter to the distribution of toque to the front or rear
wheels as needed.
At the time of manufacture, Chrysler and Mitsubishi crowded the
Stealth with gadgetry. They capitalized on new technology to propel
both sales and performance.
Of all the devices in the RT, the most unique is a active muffler
system. The system, in sport mode increases the flow to the
muffler. Complementing the the active exhaust are numerous systems.
To steer the Stealth, it uses a four wheel steering system. At the
time of manufacture, four wheel steering was just entering the
market. During cornering the rear wheels aid handling by moving the
rear wheels up to 1.5 degrees. Other advanced systems include:
active damping, ABS and an active temperature control for the
Despite the abundant technology, the Stealth thankfully uses
analogue gauges for both the speedometer and tachometer.
From its inception, the Stealth played a major role in increasing
Dodges name as a performance brand. It propelled the brand further
than the Talon, leading up the Dodge Viper. The technology in the
Stealth, mainly derived from Mitsubishi, is questionably
overabundant. While four wheel steering and an active exhaust
system sound good, these technologies were very new in 1990. They
are questionable for long-term durability, especially considering
there are of more than a few active systems involved.
Undeniably, the Stealth offered great performance and technology
from a $30 000 price tag. It is in this area where the Stealth won
the most buyers. Very few cars in the early nineties provided the
owner with so much value.
This particular example was owned by a NC collector and was well
cared for. The car runs and drives very well. The turbos spool up
fast and the car has great acceleration. The 5 Speed manual
transmission rows through the gears with ease. The car is a very
nice driving car that was years ahead of its time. The Air
Conditioning is very cold and all options seem to be working
