The 2012 Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show "is the perfect place for us to showcase our vast portfolio of proven, quality-tested Mopar performance parts and accessories,” said Pietro Gorlier, President and CEO of Mopar, Chrysler Group LLC’s service, parts and customer-care brand. “We hope that show-goers look at each of these vehicles and get inspired to customize and accessorize their rides.”
When the all-new 2013 Dodge Dart rolled out of the factory, it debuted with more than 150 available Mopar parts and accessories, the most in the compact-car segment. For Dodge Dart owners seeking inspiration, the Carbon Fire does the job.
On the performance end of the spectrum, the Mopar prototype carbon fiber hood offers significant weight savings. A three-piece prototype rear decklid spoiler provides downforce to keep the Carbon Fire planted through the corners, while also giving a more dramatic look to the vehicle. Silver brake calipers stand out while helping to control the Dodge Dart’s power.
The charcoal grey exterior is accented with a Mopar satin black front chin spoiler and a Mopar satin black body kit underneath the Dart’s fascia. The Carbon Fire sits on prototype gloss black 19-inch wheels, with Mopar logo center caps. The gloss black theme is also utilized on the prototype front fascia insert, roof and mirror covers. The prototype Mopar grille texture is another stand out, dropping the customary cross hair grille of the Dodge Dart.
The sleek feel is accentuated with light smoke headlamps and tail lamps. On the lower fascia, fog lamps are swapped for unique daytime running lights, borrowed from the Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT, and set in a unique bezel. Tinted windows hide an interior that features color cues from the exterior, with darker matte finishes on the interior bezels and Katzkin leather seats that follow the outside color themes.
