Chrysler Group LLC will have a major presence at next week’s 2011 SEMA Show in Las Vegas. This year the company's 28,400-sq.-ft. exhibit will include more than 30 Mopar-modified vehicles from the Ram, Dodge, Chrysler, Jeep, SRT and Fiat brands. More than 500 Mopar accessories will be showcased in the exhibit.
“The aftermarket is a $34 billion-a-year industry and SEMA is the perfect place to showcase everything that Mopar has to offer,” said Pietro Gorlier, President and CEO of Mopar, Chrysler Group LLC’s service parts and customer-care brand.
Mopar image vehicles that will be on display at SEMA include:
Chrysler 300 SF6
The Chrysler 300 SF6 features 22x9.5-in. and 22x10.5-in. Savini Mono Di Forza SM3 aluminum wheels wrapped with 265/35 R22 (front) and 295/30 R22 (rear) performance tires. For improved cornering and braking, this 300S model features a custom Mopar/KW coil-over-spring kit, front and rear strut-tower braces and larger SRT8 performance brakes.
A Mopar cold-air intake, custom Mopar long-tube headers, and Mopar/Corsa custom exhaust system combine to deliver more performance from the 5.7L Hemi V8 engine.
The interior of the Chrysler 300 SF6 features Mopar/Katzkin performance seats trimmed in black with black/blue perforated leather and Mopar blue accent stitching.

Dodge Challenger SRT8 ACR
Mopar Underground created the Dodge Challenger ACR based on the Challenger SRT8 392 and is a homage to the original "option-delete" cars of the ’60s and ’70s.
The Challenger ACR is equipped with Mopar parts, such as a coil-over suspension, front-and rear-strut tower braces, a short-throw shifter, a front splitter, a cat-back exhaust, custom exhaust headers and a set of Goodyear F1 Supercar performance tires. Interior performance enhancements include carbon-fiber door panels, front race bucket seats with openings for a racing harness, and the rear seat is removed and replaced by a roll bar and fire extinguisher.
The exterior has design cues similar to those found on the Viper SRT10 ACR, including a white body, charcoal painted roof, carbon-fiber hood, rear deck lid, rear spoiler and tail lamp surround and an offset flame red stripe that runs the length of the car. Red painted mirror caps and brake calipers and black painted five-spoke 20-inch alloy wheels.
|Dodge Durango Tow Hook
Dodge Durango Tow Hook
The Dodge Durango Tow Hook's exterior features a musclecar-inspired four-coat orange paint scheme, with a satin-black roof, fascia accents and hood graphics, along with blacked-out lighting and twin-spoke 22x9.5-in. forged superalloy wheels wrapped in Pirelli tires. A custom mandrel-bent exhaust system featuring Corsa components increases performance.
The Tow Hook’s interior is adorned in black, perforated Mopar Katzkin Leather seats with orange leather trim on the tops of the seat bolsters. Finishing off the interior modifications are an SRT steering wheel, black chrome trim around the vents and piano-white trimmed radio/HVAC and center console bezels.
Fiat 500 Titanium
The Fiat 500 Titanium features an aggressively sculpted front fascia, large honeycomb grilles for maximum engine cooling and a satin black fascia insert with integrated LED fog lamps. From the side, 16x6.5-in. Matte Titanium wheels feature a two-piece design. Custom Mopar lowering springs provide a lowered ride height and Matte Titanium front-and rear-brake calipers with larger rotors deliver improved stopping performance. A large liftgate spoiler adds down force for improved stability at higher speeds, while a more aggressively styled rear fascia features a diffuser insert for improved aerodynamics.
Inside, high-performance front seats are designed to be lightweight and feature side bolsters and a racing-harness pass through. Both front and rear seats are wrapped in smooth black leather and accented with Titanium Metallic vinyl seat centers.
Fiat 500 Carbon
The Fiat 500 Carbon sits on large 17x7-in. dark hyper black aluminum wheels with wide 205/40 R 17 performance tires. For greater cornering and performance, custom Mopar lowering springs, a strut-tower brace and a cold-air intake have been installed.
A more aggressive satin carbon-fiber liftgate spoiler improves the Fiat 500 Carbon’s aerodynamic efficiency while adding down force for improved handling. Below, a powdercoated carbon fiber exhaust tip with Mopar cat-back exhaust provides an aggressive sound.
The interior of the Fiat 500 Carbon continues the blacked-out look and is highlighted by Anodized Azzurro accents. Black leather sport seats feature embossed fabric with a textured geometric pattern in the seat centers.
|Ram 392 Quick Silver
Ram 392 Quick Silver
The Ram 392 Quick Silver began life as a 2011 Ram R/T. A 470 horsepower, 392 Hemi V8 from the SRT lineup was dropped in and mated to the R/T’s 4.10 gear set and a high-stall converter. For additional performance, the Ram 392 is equipped with a cold-air intake kit and headers featuring an electronic exhaust cutout for maximum power and sound at the track.
To improve braking performance, discs and calipers are replaced with a Brembo big brake kit, featuring 15-in. vented rotors and bright silver six-piston calipers in the front and rear. With the exception of a gloss black roof, the body is finished in a three-stage bright silver while the wheels, grille inserts, mirrors and select interior trim components are coated in anodized red paint.
The Ram 392 Quick Silver is lowered 2 in. with the help of a custom suspension kit. A Mopar body kit consists of sill and box pieces, finishing up with a chin spoiler.
Mopar Underground added their 22-in. wheels wrapped in 275/45R22 tires up front and 305/40R22 tires in the rear. A Mopar hard tonneau cover with an integrated spoiler redirects the air for additional down force at high speeds.
