AUBURN HILLS, Mich., Nov. 13 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Have you ever
wanted to be a professional test driver? Going fast on a tight course and
squealing the tires in the turns, just like on TV? Or maybe you've always
wanted to take a 4x4 on an off-road adventure over logs and through rivers?
Dallas/Fort Worth-area residents will have a once-in-a-lifetime chance to
try out all of these things in a controlled setting when Chrysler Group's
"Full Throttle Test Drive Event" comes to Lone Star Park in Grand Prairie,
Texas, on Saturday, Nov. 18 and Sunday, Nov. 19.
Consumers are being invited to test drive the full line of 2007
Chrysler, Jeep(R) and Dodge products, including the all-new Chrysler
Sebring, Jeep Wrangler Unlimited and Dodge Nitro, on three specially
designed test tracks. One track will showcase the ride and handling of the
Chrysler Group's passenger cars and a second track will feature the
off-road capability of sport-utility vehicles like the Jeep Wrangler, Grand
Cherokee and Commander.
The third track will be dedicated to demonstrating the power and
performance of the Chrysler Group's SRT product line. Professional test
drivers will take consumers on the ride of a lifetime in the Jeep Grand
Cherokee SRT8, Chrysler Crossfire SRT6 and Dodge Viper SRT10. Thrill rides
will be available each day at 10 a.m., 12 p.m., 2 p.m. and 4 p.m.

brand new Chrysler Crossfire Coupe.
