Dodge has unveiled a sinister new Mopar Dart ahead of its official debut next week at the 2013 Chicago Auto Show.

The Mopar Dart will be the fourth special-edition, Mopar-badged vehicle the American automaker has created since it partnered with Fiat in 2009. It will be limited to just 500 units and will be customized with Mopar performance parts and accessories.

Powered by the 1.4-liter MultiAir intercooled-turbo engine mated to a manual transmission, the Mopar Dart gets outfitted with a sport-tuned exhaust system, giving it a throatier tone compared to the standard model. A more aggressive stance and better handling come courtesy of a lowered sport suspension kit while handling has been enhanced even further with revised steering calibration.

The gloss-black exterior is contrasted by a pair of Mopar Blue racing stripes while lower profile 225/40R18 tires has been fitted. Upgrading the Dart’s braking capabilities is a premium brake kit with slotted rotors from Mopar. The aesthetics also benefit from a ground effects kit which includes a front lip, one-piece trunk spoiler, and rear diffuser.

On the inside, the Mopar Dart features a Mopar Blue leather seat with contrasting black accents for the driver, while the rest of the interior features black leather with blue accent stitching. Each vehicle will have a Mopar serialized badge and also features technology such as wireless charging for smartphones.

No pricing was announced for the 2013 Mopar Dodge Dart, but AutoGuide will be sure to check it out at the 2013 Chicago Auto Show and report back with any figures.
