Brazil’s Chrysler is launching a special edition called the Decade Edition. Love the little retro wagon? Well come on down to Brazil, where for the cool little sum of $69,990 Brazilian reais (at 1.8 reais to the dollar, around USD$38,000) you can get your fix!
According to Brazil’s best known car rag, Quatro Rodas, for that tiny wee of money you’ll get a special logo glued on to the back lift gate with the saying, “Decade Edition 2000-2010”, not to mention a certificate of authenticity. Wait, there’s more!
You’ll also get specially designed 16 inch alloy wheels. Plus, the super well known (for its thirst) 2.4 engine good for 143hp that’ll get you from naught to 100km/h in a hair over 10 seconds. Give it a little time (and pray for favorable winds) and the thing will take you to a top speed of 171 km/h. Imagine, many puny 1.0L cars will be 5 km/h slower! The mighty mill comes mated to the super exclusive 4 speed auto transmission with sequential gear changes.
Not convinced yet? Chrysler do Brasil will throw in A/C, leather covered seats, power sun roof, radio with CD player and USB port, ABS, double airbags, and a driver’s seat that’s adjustable for height.
What are you waiting for? Haven’t you always dreamed of buying a PT Cruiser for a mere 38K?
Come on down! I’ll write you a note to prove to your wife that your trip was strictly for the car.
