Mopar Chrysler 300: The Elegant Dark Treatment.1

The automobile parts and service arm of Chrysler Group LLC, Mopar, is celebrating its 75th year of existence in the car tuning industry. As part of their grand celebration, Mopar has released customized products such as the Mopar-influenced Chrysler 200 Super S as well as the Dodge Charger Redline. The revelation was held at the Detroit Auto Show. According to Mopar, these two special editions are considered gift to themselves, for being strong in the industry for 75 years. In addition to the aforementioned “gifts” is a Chrysler 300 limited edition, which was specially built from the exclusive parts of Mopar.
The special and limited edition Chrysler 300 has a theme of black and blue this year. Car tuning enthusiasts and Chrysler fans are not new to this theme because it already appeared at the Mopar 2010 Dodge Challenger as well as in Mopar 2011 Charger. But the idea of applying both of these fully on a Chrysler is a new innovation. Undoubtedly, this theme suits the Chrysler 300 and it gave more elegance as well as opulent image to the car. The other visual upgrades that the Chrysler 300 received are kept elusive yet classy. The influence of the Mopar 2010 Dodger in terms of bold graphics, hood scoops, and spoilers are modified in this model. Instead of getting a direct influence from it, the Chrysler 300 gets “Mopar Blue” thin stripes in the belt line and continues its way down to scoop-free hood.

As part of its 75th anniversary celebration Mopar, a tuning house responsible for the gorgeous repackaging of several renowned vehicle brands, has shown its new improved version of Chrysler 300 at the 2012 Chicago Auto show.  The new Chrysler 300 has adapted the theme that Mopar has used to its 2010 Dodge Challenger version as well as the Mopar’s version of 2011 Charger – the black & blue. Although this theme was known to Dodge it was the first time that Chrysler will get this transformation so naturally some variations has been made to fit the 300 and keep its cool classic elegance.
Instead of using the usual bold combination Mopar’s thin blue stripes can obviously be seen along the beltline and running through the middle of the vehicle’s hood. The blue is in direct contrast to the complete black treatment using black grille, dark-trimmed headlights, and black aluminum wheels. The interior of Mopar ’12 300 is also set to follow the black/blue theme, highlighting the black interior are blue stitching to the chairs, blue inserts, blue leather in the steering wheel and blue shift lever. A reminder that this Chrysler 300 is a limited edition can be seen on the sill plates, which bear Mopar’s serialized plaque.
As part of the upgrade, the Mopar-ized Chrysler 300 promises a better performance. Compare to the suspension setup of unmodified 300 versions the front spring of Mopar 300 is stiffer by 42% while the rear spring is firmer by 23%. Although the 5.7L V8 stays the same an expected improvement can be seen since the usual 3.06:1 was replaced by a 3.91:1 thereby increasing the performance ratio. A limited edition high end brake pads has also replaced the old ones for improved performance and the usual Firehawk tires (tyres) was replaced by Goodyear’s Eagle F1 high performance tires.
This limited edition 2012 Mopar 300 is estimated to cost around $50,000 or less in complete package, any Chrysler 300 owners however can copy this limited edition look by purchasing the upgrades and putting them to the vehicle by themselves. Every accessory that was used to this special 300 edition, except the badges, can be found in the Mopar catalog including the prices of each.
