Chrysler Group LLC and Fiat S.p.A Highlight Mopar® at 2011 Bologna Motor Show Expansion of Mopar Brand Continues

"Moparized" Jeep Wrangler and Fiat 500 Two Accessorization Stations in Fiat Group exhibit How do you say "Mopar or no car" in Italian?

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. - Mopar is racing overseas to showcase its latest accessories at the 2011 Bologna Motor Show which takes place Dec. 3 – 11, further enhancing its partnership with Fiat S.p.A. Building on Mopar's concept of accessorizing vehicles at auto shows, the company will showcase a "Moparized" Jeep Wrangler and Fiat 500. "With more than 280,000 parts and accessories distributed in more than 120 countries, Mopar has a significant global presence," said Pietro Gorlier, President and CEO of Mopar. "Through our partnership with Fiat, we will continue to expand our reach and fully leverage our service, parts and customer-care brand throughout the world.

Jeep Wrangler is already one of our most accessorized vehicles," said Gorlier. "Through the Mopar-Fiat partnership, we want to have the same accessorization success for the Fiat 500, which is the perfect canvas for personalization." For each of the two vehicles, Accessorization Stations will be staged at the Fiat Group Automobiles Parts and Service stand. Every two hours, mechanics will transform a Jeep Wrangler and Fiat 500 into fully accessorized vehicles. In addition, attendees may frame sections of display vehicles with an iPad2 and see what the vehicle would look like with different accessories. Visitors may also put on a special virtual reality viewer and experience 360-degree views of fully accessorized vehicle interiors.
