Chrysler has just announced its plans to introduce a special edition of the 300 model, which will be made in collaboration with Mopar, at the 2012 Chicago Auto Show.

According to the North American based automaker, the Chrysler 300 special edition will be made in order to celebrate Mopar’s 75th anniversary. As you can see from the images posted below, the model is coming with a black chrome grille, blue body stripes, special badging, tinted headlights, sport-tuned suspension, high-performance brakes and some new 20 inch wheels wrapped in Goodyear Eagle F1 tires.

“Customization is king. These head-turning ‘Moparized’ vehicles show how we can go to the next level of personalization. With our best-in-class offerings of parts and accessories, we give our customers every opportunity to further enhance the appearance and performance of their vehicles”, said the President and CEO of Mopar, Chrysler Group LLC, Pietro Gorlier.

The cabin hasn’t been left aside either and it’s now fitted with perforated Katzkin leather seats, carbon fiber trim, piano black accents, thick-rimmed steering wheel, new gear knob, an Alpine audio system and a Uconnect Touch infotainment system.

Under the hood, the Chrysler 300 Mopar Special Edition is powered by a 5.7 liter V8 engine which is generating a total output of 363 horsepower, offering the sedan a 0 to 60 mph acceleration of about 5 seconds. The starting price for the 2012 Mopar 300 is $49.700 and the model will be available this summer.
