Mopar to Trick Out New 2013 SRT Viper and Wrangler Hemi V8 4x4 for SEMA

| |

The performance crew over at Mopar may have revealed a selection of customized cars such as the V10-powered Dodge Charger Juiced, the Fiat 500 Beach Cruiser and the Urban Ram concepts in the flesh and in advance of the SEMA Show on October 30, but the Chrysler Group's tuning arm is keeping several more projects under wraps.

Among the dozen or so SEMA show-bound Chrysler cars that have no yet been unveiled in the flesh are the "Moparized" 2013 SRT Viper and the Jeep Wrangler Sand Trooper, both of which were teased through renderings.

Needless to explain why, the 2013 SRT Viper is the "king" of the pack. Mopar says it has fitted SRT's flagship model with a variety of accessories and performance parts.

Finished in a yellow shade, Mopar's Snake adopts many lightweight carbon fiber parts, including an underhood with an exposed carbon fiber performance cross X-Brace featuring a decal-cut Viper “Stryker” logo in the center, and which the company claims is 50 percent lighter than the factory version.

The prototype also gets an engine cover constructed from carbon fiber and aluminum, an aluminum oil filler cap, a carbon fiber aero package and special coil springs.

Inside, Mopar uses the same color theme but in reverse, with full black interior featuring yellow accents on the edgings and the rear part of the Sabelt hard-shell seats.

Other accessories include the billet aluminum shift knob and HVAC bezels and controls, a bright pedal kit with the Viper logo etched in the pedals and polished chrome door-sill guards, just to mention a few.

The second "Moparized" model teased via a sketch is the Jeep Wrangler Sand Trooper, which is said to serve as a showpiece for the company's hard-core performance parts.

Like many other SEMA show Wranglers, the Sand Trooper adopts a 5.7-liter HEMI V8 crate engine, which in this application, pumps out 375-horses and 410 lb-ft. of peak torque.

The two-door model features new front and rear portal axles that provide an extra 5 inches of lift while rolling on gargantuan 42-inch Super Swamper Bogger tires and matte-black bead lock wheels.

The tune continues with a full-length underbody skid plate and numerous other prototype and production parts from Mopar such as matte-black front and rear off-road bumpers, grille, fuel-filler door, tail lamp guards and door-sill guards, a vented hood, a Warn winch, LED off-road lights, and trailer-tow hitch receiver.

The interior of the rugged 4x4 is upgraded with Katzkin Leather seats, a rearview camera, Mopar prototype CB radio and all-weather slush mats.
