Mopar will have a more high-profile presence at upcoming auto shows, noted Chrysler in a statement on Monday. Next week's Detroit show will also see the debut of the Chrysler 200 Super S by Mopar.
The Charger Redline showcases kits that add cosmetic and performance upgrades.
The Stage One kit for the Charger includes a Mopar carbon-fiber chin spoiler, carbon-fiber door scoops and carbon-fiber rear spoiler. The Stage One modifications are based on the 2012 Charger R/T. The cabin gets a Mopar aluminum shift bezel and instrument panel bezel with Redline perimeter accent.
The Stage Two Mopar kit bundles a cat-back exhaust system, a front-tower cross-brace and brace caps for improved handling, plus high-performance Mopar brake linings.

The new engine delivers 220 more horsepower than the 2012 Dodge Charger R/T. Other details include Mopar cast-aluminum valve covers and billet fuel rails.
