Back in August, we brought you the news that Fiat Chrysler Automobiles [NYSE:FCAU] was considering reviving its storied GLH badge, short for Goes Like Hell, on a high-performance version of its Dart compact sedan. Fast forward to today and FCA is showing a Dodge Dart GLH concept at the SEMA show currently underway in Las Vegas.
The automaker isn’t willing to confirm production just yet but recall that the latest Viper ACR was first previewed in concept form at SEMA, and it’s possible the same will be true for a new Dart GLH. Unfortunately, the Dart GLH concept on show at SEMA is more about accessories than proper performance mods.
The concept sports a new grille, front splitter, chunky side sills and a rear diffuser. Red accents on the lower body provide an outline reminiscent of the original Omni GLH developed with Carroll Shelby, who is credited with coming up with the GLH moniker, and there’s also a black paint job—a popular option on the original GLH models.
Some mods that should help with the car’s performance include an aluminum hood, 18-inch light alloys, uprated brakes and a sports exhaust. In the cabin, you’ll find Katzkin leather trim in black with contrasting red accents, plus a sports steering wheel, pedal kit and custom door sills with the Dart logo.
Other Mopar concepts on show at SEMA this week include the Dodge Challenger GT AWD, Dodge Charger Deep Stage 3, Fiat 500X Chicane and Mobe, and several Ram 1500s.
