    The Eagle Premier (later called Dodge Monaco) did have the PRV engine.

    Curiously it could be mated to an Audi gearbox.

    That looks conspicuously-unhorrible when you consider that it's a late'80s/early-'90s ChryCo/AMC product. Though with firepower like Dick Teague and Giorgetto Guigiaro at the easel, you would expect better than "unhorrible".

    The Dodge Monaco, on the other hand, looks comfortingly-horrible.

    I mean this purely in an aesthetic sense. I'm sure they were about as reliable as rain in California and were mechanically byzantine to such an extent as to make men who cut their teeth on Lucas-Electrified BL products weep.

    I know we are slightly off topic here, but I found this video, I thought since we discussed it a while a go it would be good to share.

    Personally, being from Europe I find it interesting, although probably not for the traditional reasons...

    On the PRV engine, the Autozine guy always used to call it the 'French National V6' because anything and everything French that had 6 cylinders would use it. I like that as a name.

    To remain resolutely off-topic, I am really coming around to the Premier's looks. If the excessively-long front overhang (Thanks, FWD!) were tidied up, it would look like a wicked yakuza ride in black on gray; almost like a more-elegant Audi 5000 (Audi 100/200 to the Yurps, I believe).

    If you didn't tell me what that was, I'd call that a Nissan President or Cedric.

    That Premier looks like some generic nondescript car from GTA III...
