Chrysler 200 Super S – Click above to view the high-res image gallery

Nestled into a well-hidden crevice on the outskirts of the Chrysler booth at the Detroit Auto Show is a Mopar-accessorized 200 Super S. That's right: a pimped 200. It would appear that Mopar noticed the 200 looks a bit... tall, so Team Pentastar's aftermarket arm dropped the 200's suspension a full three inches and outfitted it with a reworked lower chin and rear decklid spoilers. The 200 is further tweaked with a sublime quartet of glossy black 19-inch wheels, a pair of awkward hood vents, a mesh grille and foglamp bezels with light bar applique.

So... your neighbors still haven't noticed that you dropped thousands of dollars on aftermarket parts for your Chrysler 200? Mopar's design department has also re-sprayed the Super S with two-tone tungsten on matte black paint. Unfortunately the thin pinstriping on the showcar appears less than production ready. Click below for our high-res gallery of the 200 Super S.

      Nice try . . . but (the best line from the movie Christine) "you can't polish a turd!"

      I was just thinking that this would be fun with the 300 hp SRT4 turbo and a 6-speed manual. I wonder if they could integrate that with the AWD option that was available on the Sebring? It should be a simple drop-in situation because any powertrain that fits into the Caliber will mate with the 200 platform. It certainly would be an entertaining drive, or a handful of torque...lol.

      What this 200 Super S demonstrates is the ability of Chrysler to transform a weak product into a competative one. Except for the Chrysler haters, few will call this car ugly and personally I think it's as good as anything else out there.
      With turbo power coming to the Pentastar V-6, this 200 could rival many Euro- brands in short order. The Avenger will benifit from a viable SRT done the road too.
      Secondly, it speaks to the commitment of Chrysler to this market segment. If Chrysler and Dodge can build the best midsize cars on the planet with the next generation, then why can't attitudes change and folks buy them in volume? I expect just that.
      As far a rental car sales go, every brand, including imports, sell to that market and why not? If Dodge can sell 50,000 police Chargers and 25,000 Avengers to fleets, how does that hurt the brand? Heck, the Chrysler 200 convertible is a premium rental in warm climate markets and that introduces many to the brand who may have never considered Chrysler. Stop the rental car nonsense already guys.

      Is the 200S currently available? I need a set of those louvers for my 48 DeSoto Hot Rod, to get some heat out from under the hood, created by the 392 Hemi (early Chrysler)?

      Not a bad effort by the Mopar crew on this one. Looks like Chrysler has set up a regular lemonade stand over the past year.

      Looking forward to what the all new 200 will look like now that all of these updates (aside from the Mopar pimpout) as setting the stage for a more solid offering from Chrysler than the junk they were pawning off just a year or so ago.

      Looking good.

      The front has a lot of Subaru on it, but that's no bad at all.

      How in the hell did they drop it 3" and have it still look like that? Most cars I know look low with a 1.5" drop...!
        • 3 Years Ago
        They're definitely embellishing for the cool factor, even a high riding 200 would have some tuck after a 3" drop.

      Wow, I was expecting the usual negative comments for a Chrysler, but it appears that people (me included) like the look of this one. Nice job, but I think I'd peel off the Mopar decal on the side for a more stealthy look.

      Have any of these Auto Show MOPAR specials ever looked good? I might remember seeing one (1!) interesting Charger over the years and then a few Ram concepts, but everything else always looks like a "JC Whitney's Worst Of".

      Paint the hood the same colour as the car and lose the hood vents. Tighten the grill up a bit. It looks too tall, like a gaping chain-link maw. Other than that, the lowering works. It actually doesn't look lowered which, as others have mentioned, makes me wonder how awkward the stock one looks (I'm gonna check after this post).

      It's ok overall, but it still has a whiff of "pimp my Sebring."

      It's amazing that it took 3 inches to get here...it looks just about right at this height. Apparently Chrysler hasn't yet gotten the memo about buyers not wanting cars that have inches of dead space between the tire and fender. They really need to step up their game. If they had included just a few of the visual cues in the "Super S" on the factory 200, it could make it go from forgettable rental queen to eye catching and appealing. Sigh.

      Does anyone else think this car in this guise looks a little like a (poor copy of a) Taurus? Maybe it's just me...

      Looks worlds better for sure. Now give it RWD or AWD, and a nice power increase, and we're talking.
