Of all the special edition vehicles Mopar has on display today at the Chicago Auto Show, the Dodge Dart is probably the most attractive.
It’s also the most radically different looking of the four vehicles we had a chance to see today thanks to the sweeping carbon fiber hood with an aggressive-looking hood scoop that looks down towards a black grille. Those colors work well against the car’s red paint, especially with the 18-inch black aluminum alloy wheels which set this special dart aflight.
Mopar also graced the car with a better air intake and exhaust and retuned engine computer to make an extra 30 horsepower, bringing this version up to 210 total.
Inside, the car gets similar treatment as the exterior. A matching color scheme and piano black trim set the Dodge Dart GTS 210 Tribute well apart from the stock model — if you’re into the racer boy look.

Mopar has treated us to some automotive delights this morning by releasing Chrysler vehicles decked out with Mopar parts in celebration of the aftermarket parts companies 75th anniversary. The Dodge Dart GTS 210 Tribute is a race inspired package that takes the already sporty looking Dart to a new level of performance.
The exterior of the Dart GTS 210 has gained several matte black trim pieces including a lower chin spoiler, side sills, rear spoiler and rear-diffuser panel. A carbon fiber hood complete with large air scoop takes some weight off the Dart and makes it look good. The Dart GTS 210 will run on 18-inch, 10 spoke forged alloy titanium-colored wheels which look fantastic against the ruby red paint.
The interior of the Dart GTS 210 will carry on the black and red theme with red Katzkin leather seats accented by black stitching. Piano black trim is used on the shifter bezel, cup holder bezel and dash vents bezel. To top it all off the Dodge Dart GTS 210 gets a suede clad instrument panel with red accent stitching.
For performance, Mopar has added an improved air flow intake, a low back pressure exhaust system and finer tuned fuel/air mix in the cylinder to pull 210 horsepower out of the regular 180 horsepower engine.
The Mopar Dodge Dart GTS 210 Tribute will be on display at the 2012 Chicago Auto Show.
