The limited-edition '13 Dart has recently been unveiled by Chrysler's performance-focused Mopar division. The modified Dart is set to debut at the upcoming Chicago Motor Show. It comes with a bold exterior design from Mopar that gets inspiration from the tuner industry. This car uses gloss black paint with a contrasting blue stripe and it features an aerodynamic body kit that is comprised of discreet spoilers on the front bumper and on the trunk lid, as well as an air diffuser out back.
The '13 Dart rides on a set of 18-inch alloy wheels that have gloss black paint. Chrysler said that the Moparized Dart gets a blue-stitched steering wheel and sport pedals as well as a numbered plaque on the dash. It comes with several advanced features as standard.
These include an 8.4-inch touch screen and wireless charging for mobile devices. Mopar didn’t change anything under the hood. The '13 Dart comes with a 1.4-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that delivers 160hp and 184 lb-ft. of torque. The Fiat 500 Abarth features the MultiAir mill that’s linked to a six-speed manual transmission.
To build a livelier driving experience, the newest Mopar-designed vehicle gets a re-calibrated steering system, a lowered and stiffened suspension and improved brakes.
The Belvidere, Illinois, plant of Chrysler will build only 500 units of the Mopar '13 Dart. Every car will get a personalized plate that indicates the vehicle's specifications, its manufacturing date and its VIN number. Customers will also get a Mopar '13 brochure and a limited-edition sketch that bears the signature of Mopar's chief designer Mark Trostle.
