The Chrysler brand brought two “sinister” looking concept cars to Las Vegas for the annual Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) show.
Mopar designers took a standard Chrysler 200 and Chrysler 300 and gave each a makeover for the annual automotive specialty products trade show held this week.
Both cars were lowered closer the ground and given a Mopar after-market makeover.
Show attendees saw a Chrysler 200 with ceramic grey metallic exterior on display.
Under the hood of the customized car is a V-6 Pentastar engine with a cat-back exhaust and cold-air intake.
These enhancements “amp up the performance of your front-wheel-drive car,” said Todd Beddick, head of Mopar accessory and performance portfolio.
The 200 on display at SEMA also has Mopar 19-inch wheels painted with a unique Satin Black finish.
“The body kit gives it a more aggressive appearance,” said Beddick. “When you lower it down, it totally changes the attitude.”
While the exterior was beefed up, designers did not neglect the interior, which features leather seats outlined in Mopar Blue piping, with the trademark Mopar blue on the instrument panel and portions of the door panel.
Not to be outdone, the Chrysler 300 also was given a “slick” matte Cerulean blue exterior finish.
The 5.7-liter HEMI engine beefed up with Mopar Stage 1, Stage 2 and Stage 3 Upgrade Kits mimic the modifications and performance boosts delivered by Mopar Scat Pack.
“(It) gives you a nice kick,” Beddick said.
Inside the sedan are light grey leather seats, trimmed in Mopar-blue stitching with splashes of blue on the side panels and instrument panel. Additionally, the production 300’s rotary shifter was replaced with a concept polystable T-handle shifter and a sportier, flat-bottom steering wheel.
For those who could get up close to the 300 at the show, they found numerous Easter eggs hidden in the grille.
Nearly 300 miniature Mopar “M” letters, painted dark hyper black, dot the entire grille.
While neither Chrysler 200 nor 300 are available to the general public, consumers can accessorize their vehicles with many of the Mopar add-ons from the concepts.
