Mopar, Chrysler Group’s in-house parts, accessories, and service division, will show off 30 different customized vehicles at the upcoming Specialty Equipment Market Association show in Las Vegas. Among them will be one-off examples of the Fiat 500, Chrysler 300, Dodge Challenger, Dodge Durango, and Ram R/T built with Mopar accessories.
The Fiat 500 Titanium is designed to have a sporty, luxurious look, thanks to 16-inch Matte Titanium wheels, a new fascia with gloss-black insert, a new honeycomb grille, and gloss-black headlight housings. New side skirts, a rear spoiler, and a new rear diffuser are said to contribute downforce for better high-speed stability. The mirror housings, door handles, license plate trim, and center-exit exhaust tip are all finished in Matte Titanium. The 500 Titanium scores bolstered, black leather bucket seats, along with a cold-air intake, new exhaust, front strut-tower brace, and lowering spring kit.
The Fiat 500 Carbon is a sportier take on the compact Italian, with 17-inch wheels shod in performance tires, a carbon-fiber rear spoiler, a cold-air intake, a new exhaust, a front strut tower brace, and lowering springs all fitted. The exhaust tip, rear fascia, and parts of the instrument panel are all made from carbon fiber. The 500 Carbon wears striking Anodized Azzurro blue paint, with black satin accents for the fog lights and carbon-fiber front splitter. Inside, black sport seats coordinate with black accent trim that replaces the 500’s usual chrome accoutrements.
The Chrysler 300 SF6 begins life with 22-inch aluminum wheels, exterior styling trim borrowed from the 300S, and a roof painted gloss black. The 5.7-liter V-8 engine has been upgraded with Mopar headers and a new exhaust, while the chassis scores Mopar coilover suspension, strut-tower braces, and beefier SRT-sourced brakes. Cabin upgrades begin with Mopar seats covered in black leather, Piano Black trim, and a Mopar/Kicker audio system comprising of a trunk-mounted 10-inch subwoofer and upgraded speakers throughout the car.
The Dodge Challenger SRT8 ACR pays tribute to the Mopar Drag Pak Challenger, as well as the fast Nürburgring lap time set by the Dodge Viper SRT10 ACR. Based on the production Challenger 392, the ACR model wears white paint with a black roof, carbon-fiber roof, and offset red stripe to look like the aforementioned Viper. Coil-over suspension, a short-throw shifter, strut-tower braces, a front splitter, a new exhaust and headers, and Goodyear F1 Supercar tires all help the car’s performance match its looks. Inside, the door panels and center console have been replaced with carbon fiber versions, and the rear seat has been replaced by a roll bar and fire extinguisher. The car’s bucket seats are covered in black Katzkin leather, the armrest bars have white padding, the door panels have white accents, and the door release straps are red.
The Dodge Durango Tow Hook is dressed up in a mix of bright orange and satin black paint, both inside and out. The Durango sports 22-inch wheels, a custom Corsa exhaust, a new piano-black front grille, and rides one inch lower than stock. Inside, the black leather seats have orange accent stitching, as do the center armrest and door panels. The interior scores an SRT steering wheel, black chrome trim, a piano-white center console bezel, and aluminum pedals.
Finally, the Ram 392 Quick Silver shows off Mopar’s vision for a high-performance truck. It began life as a humble Ram R/T, but the SRT group’s 470-horsepower, 6.4-liter Hemi V-8 was slotted into its engine bay. Along with new headers, an exhaust cutout, a cold-air intake, and a dual exhaust system, the Ram 392 Quick Silver will certainly live up to the “quick” part of its name. To keep speed in check, the truck gets a Brembo brake system with 15-inch front rotors and six-piston calipers, and rides two inches lower than stock on new suspension. The body is painted silver and the roof is gloss black, while the 22-inch wheels, grille, mirrors, and some interior parts are finished in red. A Mopar bed cover with integrated spoiler is meant to improve downforce at speed, while Kicker speakers add more musical accompaniment. Mopar goes so far as to say that the Ram 392 “would appropriately share a garage with a Dodge Viper.”
