Every year going back to 2010, <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/tag/mopar/">Mopar</a> has rolled out a limited edition version of a popular product from the Chrysler Group portfolio. First it was the <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/2010/07/07/chrysler-debuts-limited-edition-mopar-10-challenger/">Mopar '10 Challenger</a>, then the <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/2011/04/13/2011-mopar-charger-ready-to-rumble-w-burnout-video/">Mopar '11 Charger</a>, then last year's <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/2012/02/08/2012-mopar-300-chicago-2012/">Mopar '12 300</a>, and this year it will be the Mopar '13 Dart, which will make its official world debut next week at the <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/chicago-auto-show/">2013 Chicago Auto Show</a>.<br /><br />Limited in number to just 500 units, the Mopar '13 Dart is no mere appearance package, though the demeanor of the <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/dodge/dart/">Dart</a> will be murdered out with a gloss black finish, gloss black 18-inch wheels, a set of Mopar blue stripes and a mean-looking Mopar ground effects kit. Likewise, the interior is touched up with leather seats (a blue one for the driver and black hides for the passengers), gloss black and black chrome trim, blue accent stitching, a sport pedal kit and other Mopar interior accessories.<br /><br />Turning our attention back to the mechanical bits, the Mopar '13 Dart comes with the car's most powerful engine, a turbocharged 1.4-liter MultiAir four (shared with <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/fiat/500+abarth/">Fiat 500 Abarth</a>) that's paired with a manual transmission. Those big, black wheels get wrapped in low profile 225/40R18 performance tires, and keeping everything in check is an upgraded brake kit with slotted rotors. The steering has also been calibrated for performance, the suspension lowered seven millimeters, and the exhaust tuned for better engine breathing.<br /><br />But no, dear customer, that's not all. The Mopar '13 Dart also gets Chrysler's wireless smartphone charging technology, and those 500 lucky souls who bring one home will receive a "personalized owner kit" in a custom black case that includes a personalized plate with vehicle specs, a unique number ID for their car and a limited edition sketch of the car signed by its designer, among other tchotchkes. Production for the Mopar '13 Dart will begin this spring at the company's plant in Belvidere, IL.<br /><br />Now we're wondering what vehicle Mopar will lay its hands upon next year. Any guesses?<p><a href="http://www.autoblog.com/2013/01/31/mopar-13-dart-will-roll-into-chicago-next-week/" rel="bookmark">Continue reading <em>Mopar '13 Dart will roll into Chicago next week</em></a></p><p style="padding:5px;background:#ddd;border:1px solid #ccc;clear:both;"><a href="http://www.autoblog.com/2013/01/31/mopar-13-dart-will-roll-into-chicago-next-week/">Mopar '13 Dart will roll into Chicago next week</a> originally appeared on <a href="http://www.autoblog.com">Autoblog</a> on Thu, 31 Jan 2013 00:01:00 EST.
