Mopar is once again rolling out a range of customized concepts for the upcoming SEMA show in Las Vegas. In relation to this, the motor parts distributor will be tuning a number of vehicles from Chrysler
They dropped a 392 Hemi under the hood of a 2013 Ram, giving it cold-air intake, SRT Rotors and brake calipers, 22-inch R/T wheels and Mopar blue stripes. The Fiat 500, on the other hand, is considered as the most dramatically made-over car. It was widened and lowered, and it gets fender flares, old-fashioned-styled rims, and surfboard rack on top.
Also Mopar-ized are the Jeep Wrangler Sand Trooper, Chrysler 300, and Dodge Dart. More Mopar vehicles will also be present at the SEMA show in order to stay connected with their customers and gauge their preferences and trends.
Mopar-ized SRT Viper at SEMA Show
Among Chrysler Group’s machine, Mopar will put the spotlight on the car manufacturer’s most impressive car so far—the SRT Viper. Dubbed “The Snake,” the car will return to Las Vegas fully Mopar-ized.
It will feature a carbon-fiber cross beam, which is 50 percent lighter than the factory, as well as an aluminum oil filler cap, Mopar coil springs for the suspension, and carbon-fiber aero package. The aluminum and carbon-fiber engine cover will also get the Viper’s new Stryker logo.
Although the engine will retain its 640-hp V10 power, its exterior will be fortified with track pack wheels and LED fog lamp kit. The vehicle’s interior, on the other hand, will feature a Katzkin leather with yellow accents—something that would complement with the SRT Viper’s bright yellow exterior paint.
Prior to this, the Mopar concept of The Snake was only teased in sketch form. However, a real-life Charger was highlighted on a live display at the motor parts distributor’s headquarters in Center Line, Michigan. The Charger Juiced gets a cold-air intake, cat-back exhaust, and metallic copperhead-style hood.
Bringing the latest Viper edition to SEMA indicates how important the show is for Chrysler. The event is held annually in late October to early November, which takes place at the Las Vegas Convention Center. Aside from tuning vehicles from Chrysler Group, Mopar will display over 500 car parts at the show.
Furthermore, the company will show 20-inch wheels in matte with copperhead stripe. It is said that this feature will be offered as an aftermarket rollers for SRT variants of the Challenger and Chrysler 300.
