Chrysler decided to reveal the 2014 Dodge Dart Blacktop ahead of its official Detroit Auto Show debut.

Based on the mid-level Dart SXT with Rallye Appearance Group, the Blacktop is the latest of Dodge's special-edition models featuring unique exterior and interior trim from the dark side.

On top of the Rallye Appearance Group package, Blacktop models get unique 18-inch gloss black aluminum alloy wheels, gloss black mirror covers, which should complement the Rallye's dark-tinted projector headlights and blacked-out grille.

Despite the name, the Dart Blacktop will be available in multiple colors, including: Redline Red, Header Orange, Blue Streak, Granite Crystal Metallic, Billet Silver, Pitch Black, and Bright White.

The interior gets black and Ruby Red two-tone cloth trim, with Ruby Red accent stitching on the center console, instrument panel, and seat bolsters. There's more Ruby Red accenting on the front seats and door panels.

The 2014 Dodge Dart SXT Blacktop is available now, with a base price just $295 above that of a regular SXT with the Rallye Appearance Group. That brings the total price to $21,275, including destination.

Dodge also offers Blacktop versions of the Charger, Challenger, Avenger, Journey, and Grand Caravan. Special editions seem to have become the brand's forte.

If you want your Dart to have a custom look and a bit of extra performance, consider the Dart Scat Pack launched at the 2013 SEMA show. Dodge will also sell special-edition Challengers and Chargers to commemorate its 100th anniversary.
