Thanks to Brenda Priddy and her spy team, the wait for the official debut of the ’12 Chrysler 200 convertible is over. Priddy recently delivered these exclusive photos of the soft-top convertible prototype without any camouflage at all.
Priddy says that the engineers in this test car made a surprisingly fast getaway once they spotted the camera. Since it is no secret that the 200 convertible is coming out, the quickly executed getaway amused the spy team, especially considering that Chrysler announced its forthcoming debut at the New York Auto Show in April 2011.
Sporting a traditional soft top and two fewer doors, the 200 convertible will feature a 2.4L four-cylinder or the 3.6L Pentastar V6, according to Priddy. The latest word on transmissions is that a six-speed dual clutch will join the lineup on the upper-end models.
Watch for the Chrysler 200 convertible to hit dealer lots in the summer of 2011.
