Dodge to discuss a return to NASCAR:
From comments made by Sergio Marchionne, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles head honcho, it would appear that the automaker is at least considering a return to NASCAR competition. The company has not participated in the series for the last seven years. Economic constraints were the primary cause of Dodge’s departure, but now with the automaker in relatively good financial health, Marchionne is on record as wanting to discuss a return to NASCAR “in short order”.
Bugatti Chiron production:
With 220 of the planned 500 cars already spoken for, and a waiting list of up to three years, the brass at the Volkswagen-owned division are considering a speed-up in Bugatti Chiron production. Currently, the US $2.6-million sport car is being built at a rate of just 65 a year.
