  • Dodge Magnum commercial

    Has anybody else seen the dodge magnum comercial where the magnum comes up on a diablo looking car and passes it? Is it just me or does that 'diablo looking' car look a heck of a lot like an artero?

    It is an Artero. There was a thread at Pennock's a couple of weeks ago where the manufacturer of the car stepped in. He said the car should have smoked the Magnum, fwiw.

      I saw it too. I recognized it right away. I even recorded it on my DVR and rewound it and paused it and slomo'd a bunch of times. Except for the rear lights which could have been changed, it looks exactly like the Artero I built back in 1999. Right down to the color and upholstery of the interior. Mine is the only one I've seen that has the body lines where all the panels meet filled in. There can't be too many of those things out there. Plus I sold it in California, who knows it could have founds it's way down to Hollywood.

        When I saw that commercial I noticed the car looked a little short and figured it was probably a kit. The Artero is a non-stretch diablo correct?

        Side note, I heard the other day that my department was looking at the Magnum to use as a patrol car. :-\ Could be cool! Definitely better than the Fords

          The Artero isn't just a non-stretch diablo. It is a Diablo inspired Fiero rebody. It retains the Fiero doors and roof.

              it seems EVERYONE thinks its a lotus...

              that means that:

              a. people are morons ;D
              b. lotus is underestimated
              c. lotus might have a design issue :P

              either way, the lotus weighs 2x less and has 2x more power so i'd take it over a magnum even if the commercial doesnt feature a lotus ;D

              by the way, you realize why they chose a kit car right? theres serious legal issues when comparing 2 production cars, and they had a wide selection of crappy builds to choose from. it's not like they would race the bmw v12 powered ultima or an LS1 diablo replica

                What about the Toyota Tundra commercial? (I think?) It had a toyota getting smoked by a Lotus and then at the end of the track, the Tundra went "Off Roading" and that won the race.... I think it was a Lotus? Kinda cool...

                    Marty from PISA sent me a copy of the video.  I believe it is the same car that is featured on his website.  I have displayed my car for him a couple of times.  This is my Artero.

                        lol ;D of course
                        i like the concept behind making a powerful ...well its basically a caravan, but what i dont like about it is how HUGE it is. it completely defies any point in making it "sporty", sort of like the hummer/h2. no one buys a hummer for its cornering, acceleration, or sporty suspension :P not that it even has any
