2008 Startech Starster Concept

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. They're 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.

2008 Startech Starster ConceptJust 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 engine.

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 system.


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 (1.8 inches).


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 styles.

2008 Startech Starster ConceptThe 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 Dodge Avenger.
