2012 MOPAR FIAT 500
Mopar will be displaying several aftermarket accessories for the recently launched in the USA, Fiat 500, through a special version of the city car at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit. Like the Chrysler 200, the Mopar-flavored Fiat 500 is all show and no-go, as all upgrades are more or less purely cosmetic.
The result, The Detroit Show Mopar 500 appears to be far less impressive than the concept shown by the same division at last year’s SEMA gathering, with the overall styling bringing to mind the accessories found on Mopar’s “10? Limited Edition Challenger”.
2011 GWA MERCEDES CIENTO ONCE
Back in the 70s as the Mercedes-Benz C111, it is experimental showcase demonstrated the epitome of performance technology and aerodynamics. Now, GWA Tuning has breathed new life into the C111 formula with a recreation called the Ciento Once.
The one-off eschews the Wankel engine of the original for the AMG M120 V12 that drives the Pagani Zonda, driving 408 horsepower in this case through a six-speed transmission with the brakes from the S55 AMG and the rolling stock from the SLS.
