Also celebrating Mopar’s 75th Anniversary today is the Fiat 500 Stinger. The model, like the Dodge Dart GTS 210, will be available in stage kits starting this fall from the Mopar Catalog.
“Adding even more style to the new 2012 Fiat 500 Sport, the Fiat 500 Stinger features Giallo (yellow) exterior paint combined with unique blackened exterior and interior appointments – all designed to amplify the hatchback’s athletic Italian styling,” Chrysler said in a statement.

Stage 1 upgrades include the Fiat 500 Stinger’s signature ‘whiskers and logo’ face with circular projector headlamps that are finished in Black Chrome. It also gets the Giallo bodyside exterior door handles, mirror caps finished in Black Chrome, while larger 17-inch by 7-inch Abarth Hyper Black aluminum wheels with wider 205/40 R 17 performance tires, tinted head and taillamps and license-plate brow, and Mopar’s vinyl bodyside and roof graphics in black checker. The inside gets the dual Giallo and black feel with Mopar’s Katzkin leather seats, Alcantara trim carbon fiber panels and all that good stuff.
Stage 2 includes performance modifications that ensure the Fiat 500 Stinger delivers improved power and braking capability. That’s a nicer way of saying no crazy changes are made to the 1.4 liter 16-valve MultiAir, but it just handles and drives a little tighter.
