- 2012 Chrysler 200 sedan modified using Mopar parts and accessories

Chrysler Group LLC’s Mopar brand set its sights on the 2012 Chrysler 200. The Chrysler 200 Super S by Mopar is a rolling showcase for the latest Mopar exterior parts that will be available for the 200 sedan in 2012. The Chrysler 200 Super S by Mopar will debut at the 2012 North American International Auto Show.
“The Super S is Mopar’s interpretation of the Chrysler 200,” said Pietro Gorlier, President and CEO of Mopar, Chrysler Group LLC’s service, parts and customer-care brand. “The extensive list of high-quality Mopar parts enhances the performance and appearance of our Chrysler 200.”
For Stage One, Mopar’s long list of modifications starts at the front of the car with a large chin spoiler, satin chrome fog light trim, satin chrome grille surround and mesh in the upper and lower grilles. The upper grille is gloss black with a recessed Chrysler wing badge.
Body sides feature new side sills, satin chrome belt molding, black chrome “200” badges and gray or hyper black 18-inch “S” alloy wheels.
From the rear view, the new look is capped off by a new trunk lid spoiler, satin chrome light bar and a matte black lower diffuser with attached exhaust openings.
Stage Two adds performance with a coil-over suspension, which also lowers the center of gravity for the vehicle. In addition, Stage Two includes a cold-air intake and cat-back exhaust.
This Mopar package on the Chrysler 200 Super S will be available on Chrysler 200S later in 2012. Mopar’s Chrysler 200 Super S will be one of many Mopar-modified vehicles that will debut during the 2012 auto show season.
Besides the appearance upgrades and the mention of exhaust tuning, is there any real performance upgrades here, such as increased horsepower, turbo or engine mods, tuned suspension, or is it all show Rich?
Impressive: The 2012 Dodge Charger Redline gets a high-performance Hemi crate engine that produces 590 horsepower — 220 more hp than the Charger R/T. The engine is also composed of aluminum instead of cast iron, taking some 100 pounds off the vehicle’s weight compared with the regular crate V-8 that Mopar offers. A high-performance suspension, strut tower brace, throatier exhaust system and beefier brakes accompany the high-powered engine.
