Inside and out, the Avenger Tuner Stormtrooper is a force to be reckoned with. A digitally-tuned 4.0-litre V6 engine, mated to all-wheel-drive and a six-speed auto gearbox allows for smooth power, while custom suspension enables a sophisticated ride.

The SEMA Show plays host to many a souped-up vehicle this year, but few will have drawn their inspiration from a science-fiction movie. Namely, George Lucas' Star Wars. The Dodge Avenger Tuner Stormtrooper is styled according to the 'technical, yet organic nature' of the costumes used by Stormtroopers in the film, the car fusing sophistication with a 'superior' technical appeal.

Inside and out, the Avenger Tuner Stormtrooper is a force to be reckoned with. Featuring a styling kit Lucas could be proud of, new packages include the application of tinted lamps front and rear, with new front and rear bumper designs heading up the list of enhancements. New sills, cold-air intake and spoiler adorn the custom pearl white painted Stormtrooper, set off by tinted blue-magic glass and 20" custom rims.

An Alcantara suede-lined cabin features black and predominantly white seats with red stitching and prominent stripes, to give driver and passengers 'the thrill ride of their lives'. A glossy pearl white finish is given to the centre console, while instrument panels, doors and pillars are given a similar treatment.

A digitally-tuned 4.0-litre V6 engine, mated to all-wheel-drive and a six-speed auto gearbox with paddle shift allows for smooth power, while custom coil-over suspension tuned for ride-height and damping enables a sophisticated, sporting ride.

Technology is featured to a high degree in the Stormtrooper not only to aid driver and passenger comfort, but also in the pursuit of more intelligent performance. Two mobile PCs are installed - one for the front dash and the other for the rear centre console. The digitally-tuned engine can be controlled at the touch of a button, the driver being able to change tuning and read vitals via the vehicle's network domain. New engine configurations can be downloaded with relative ease, while parts can even be ordered via Mopar Performance.

The two PCs also make entertainment a breeze: games, music, video and the internet is all just a few clicks away. Bluetooth connects to any device be it mobile phone, Apple's iPhone or Microsoft's Zune. Acoustics are provided by Kicker Audio.
