It is difficult to forget the shapes and hot-rod personality of the Chrysler Prowler, one of the most original models ever in the history of the American brand.
The Prowler, marketed from 1997 to 2002 also under the defunct Plymouth brand, achieved some success especially in the United States. In Europe it was never officially imported and the very few examples that circulate were purchased through specialized companies.
A perfectly maintained specimen of Prowler will be on sale atRM Sotheby’s online auction which will be held from 19 to 28 February.
The Prowler represented the first of a series of timeless-looking models that debuted in those years. Some of these achieved moderate success (for example the Chrysler PT Cruiser and Ford Mustang), while others, such as the Ford Thunderbird, failed to win public favor.
The Prowler protagonist of the auction dates back to 2002, the last year of production of the legendary hot-rod with a retro look. The design certainly does not go unnoticed with exposed wheels. The model features the beautiful Inca Gold color (offered exclusively in 2002) combined with the black top.
Typically American chrome wheels (17 “on the front axle and 20” on the rear) as well as the large and threatening tailpipes. The interior is more traditional with black leather and details that match the body color. The equipment is not the most modern, but it is complete and includes central locking, electric windows and disc brakes. There is also air conditioning and an FM radio with CD player.
Light and fast
Under the long bonnet there is a 3.5 V6 with 257 horsepower and 400 Nm of torque. The combination of the 4-speed AutoStick automatic transmission and the aluminum body allow the Prowler to reach a top speed of 203 km / h and to sprint from 0 to 100 km / h in 5.9 seconds.
The Prowler of the auction has traveled just over 7000 km and all maintenance interventions are reported on the register that is supplied.
