2011 Chrysler 200 S by Mopar to Debut at Detroit Auto Show
Rumors had indicated Chrysler was working on a more sport oriented ‘S’ version of the 200 and while this Mopar model isn’t likely to come to market, a line of products for the car is. This Mopar-tuned model could also serve as a concept car to inspire a future production ‘S’ model.
Looking like a cheesy tuner car, the Mopar model gets a two-tone paint job and a set of beautiful 19-inch wheels that just don’t suit the car.
Other upgrades include a subtle body kit, vented hood, gloss black accenting and a suspension that’s been lowered by 3-inches. Inside are Katzkin leather seats.
In addition to the 200 S, Mopar will also display versions of the Chrysler 200, Dodge Durango, the Ram Outdoorsman, Ram Runner the Jeep Wrangler Call of Duty: Black Ops Edition. Plus, there will be a Moparized version of the Fiat 500.
Having revamped its entire line of products, Chrysler is looking to attract more customers though in-house aftermarket accessories. “More than 30 percent of the people who are in the market for a new vehicle are influenced by the breadth and availability of aftermarket accessories,” said Pietro Gorlier, President and CEO of Mopar. “With our company’s launch of 16 new vehicles, Mopar is coming to the party with a truck-load of accessories that will fit a variety of lifestyles.”
Look for live photos with the kick-off of the Detroit Auto Show next Monday, January 10th. Until then, see AutoGuide’s 2011 Detroit Auto Show preview here.
