The merger between Fiat Chrysler Automobiles and Groupe PSA cleared one of its final hurdles earlier this month, but the companies are now facing a last minute objection from Walter P. Chrysler’s great-grandson.

As part of his alternative buyout proposal, Frank B. Rhodes Jr suggests the merged entity not adopt the widely mocked Stellantis name. Instead, he proposes the automaker become known as the “Chrysler-Dodge-Jeep-Ram Corporation.”

On top of that, Rhodes wants the company to be headquartered in the United States. His proposal also calls for giving existing management and employees a retention bonus, based on tenure. Furthermore, the proposal says that in “addition to a cash price to be negotiated, and [a] payoff of all existing debt, existing stockholders would receive rights to acquire shares in the buyer entity if it was taken public in the future.”

In a statement, Rhodes said “This alternative proposal is, in my opinion, superior to the planned merger and would result in the return to the United States of the Chrysler-Dodge-Jeep-Ram brands and away from the proposed Chinese, and foreign control as proposed in the merger.”

While the proposal has little chance of gaining traction, Rhodes filed an objection to the Stellantis merger with the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States. He is also advising U.S. Senators oppose the merger as it would “remove future profits and technologies from America.”

The last-ditch effort will likely amount to nothing as shareholders are set to approve the merger on January 4th. Following that, the deal should be completed by the end of the first quarter of 2021.


As if seven world championships and a piece of Silverstone named after him weren’t enough, it seems F1 driver Lewis Hamilton will be receiving another honor for his achievements, this time in the form of knighthood.

It should be noted that five other figures in Formula 1 have been knighted at some point or another, but they had all received the honor after they retired, something that Hamilton doesn’t appear to be doing given all the talks about his contract negotiations with Mercedes.

There have been talks of Hamilton receiving his knighthood for quite some time, but it was always stalled due to the Brit claiming residency in Monaco for tax reasons. That has just changed, however, as British prime minister Boris Johnson wants to make an exception for Hamilton so as to allow him to participate in this year’s New Year Honors. The loophole would involve Johnson marking Hamilton on the “Diplomatic and Overseas List” to avoid any controversy.

After his first championship win in 2008, Hamilton got an MBE, which recognizes “people who have given exceptional service to the UK abroad and internationally”. Now, Hamilton will be the sixth person in Formula 1 to receive knighthood status, along with drivers Sir Stirling Moss, Sir Jackie Stewart, and Sir Jack Brabham, as well as Williams co-founders Sir Frank Williams and Sir Patrick Head. He will also be the first sportsman to receive his knighthood under the “Overseas” list.

It’s perhaps a little late for Lamborghini to be promoting the Urus considering that it entered production nearly three years ago, but they nevertheless did just that.

The clip shows the Italian super SUV in all kinds of environments, from the racetrack to the wilderness of Russia and, ultimately, the city center, demonstrating its versatility.

“When you can unlock any road, the world has no limit. It becomes something unique, something only Urus can make you feel that way”, the automaker noted in the video description. “With its ANIMA Selector, it doesn’t matter where you are: in the city, among nature or on the racetrack. The experience you’ll get is unbelievable.”

Priced from over $220,000 in the United States for the new model year, the Urus is Lamborghini’s second high-rider, after the LM002 of the mid-’80s/early ’90s. It shares its construction with other flagship SUVs made by the Volkswagen Group, including the Audi Q7 and Q8, Porsche Cayenne, Bentley Bentayga and VW Touareg, although it boasts exclusive bodywork, interior and mechanicals.

Described by Lamborghini as “the first Super Sport Utility Vehicle in the world to merge the soul of a super sports car with the functionality of an SUV”, the Urus is powered by a twin turbocharged 4.0-liter V8 that develops 641 HP and 627 lb-ft (850 Nm) of torque. It needs just 3.6 seconds to hit the 62 mph (100 km/h) mark from a standstill and will keep pushing all the way up to 190 mph (305 km/h).
