Chrysler Group’s SkunkWerks Team Displays Lineup of Creative Gems

* The SkunkWerks Project Vehicles
* The SkunkWerks Team

Las Vegas, Oct 31, 2006 -

The annual Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) trade show has witnessed the debut of a number of cutting-edge vehicles from Chrysler Group’s SkunkWerks team in the past few years. This year will be no different, as Mopar® and the SkunkWerks team will debut new custom vehicles at SEMA.

5.7L HEMI® Dodge Nitro

* Builders: DaimlerChrysler Dealer Technical Operations and Vehicle Build Shops
* 5.7L HEMI Crate Engine by Mopar
* 360 horsepower @ 5,400 rpm and 360 lbs.-ft. of torque @ 4,200 rpm

This Dodge Nitro rolls on custom 22-inch Alcoa rims with 14-inch Brembos behind them. With custom body panels including carbon fiber hood, front and rear fascias are covered in a one-of-a-kind blackberry pearl paint accented by the custom purple rain glass supplied by Solutia.

But this Nitro isn’t just about looks. The team stuffed a Mopar Performance 5.7L HEMI under the hood. Gear slamming is done through a Tremec 5-speed transmission via a Hurst pistol grip.

The interior continues the no-nonsense approach with four Viper buckets wrapped in black carbon fiber leather by Katzkin.

Sure to turn heads – leaving lots of long black strips on the pavement.
