Dodge and SRT Motorsports announced the fact that they will be entering the Global RallyCross Championship with a modified version of the all new 2013 Dodge Dart that is going to be piloted by four-time Rally America champion, Travis Pastrana.

Reid Bigland, President and CEO - Dodge Brand said that "At Dodge, racing is an integral part of our heritage and embodies our competitive spirit, so we’re very excited to announce the next chapter in racing for Dodge with our all-new Dodge Dart," "The new Dart Global RallyCross Championship car with 600 horsepower and driver Travis Pastrana takes our passion for performance to all new heights."

The car, which can be seen in this initial image will have its racing debut at the Charlotte Motor Speedway on May 26, with its power coming from a purpose-built 2.0-liter, 4-cylinder, 16-valve turbocharged rated at 600 horses and 550 lb-ft of torque.

The engine is mated to a Sedav 4-wheel drive gear box and according to Reid, the combination of massive power and lightweight construction will enable the 2013 Dodge Dart rally car to rocket from 0 to 60 mph in just 1.9 seconds.

"The Dart rally car is lightweight with a very powerful motor. The zero to 60 mile-per-hour times are incredible, as low as 1.9 seconds, so with Travis behind the wheel, we can’t wait for the season opener."
