Dacia Lodgy Glace

This is the dumbest car name since the Mazda Bongo Friendee.
Dacia, Renault's budget sub-brand, are finally set to release their long-awaited (by family-oriented cheapskates) compact MPV, the Lodgy. Originally mooted as the Popster - which is a far superior name, but never mind - it'll be available with the same engines as the Duster, although it's this Lodgy Glace that's of most interest to SuckSqueezeBangBlow. As the 'Glace' name may suggest it's an ice racer, built for the 2011/2012 Trophee Andros ice-racing series; two cars will be entered (one driven by Alain Prost, no less!), powered by 355bhp 3.0-litre V6 engines driving via SADEV 6-speed sequential 'boxes through limited-slip front and rear diffs. Now, imagine if they made a road-going Lodgy with that set-up. That'd do the Dacia brand no end of good.
