Titan Motorsports is at it again with the Plymouth Prowler.
It's hard to believe that it's been 15 years since Plymouth started building their retro-styled Prowler hot rod. The rear-wheel-drive 2-door retro-rod was the ill-fated company's last model that actually had any real appeal (and wasn't a rebadged Chrysler
). When the Prowler first arrived in 1997, it made use of a 214 horsepower 3.5-liter V6 mated to a 4-speed Autostick automatic gearbox.
Able to hit 62mph from rest in 7.2 seconds and reach an electronically-limited top speed of 118mph, the sports model needed a serious performance of which it happened to receive in its second form that was produced between the years of 1999-2002. The model seen here was customized by the crew over at Titan Motorsports and is the first-run Prowler. Used primarily as a show-car by owner Ralph McLaughlin, he felt it needed a bit of modernization and the Titan guys were more than ready to help out. The Plymouth had some aftermarket work done on it already, so the first thing Titan did was add some Brembo BBK brakes.
The brakes, however, didn't fit on the standard Prowler so they ended up creating a custom set. Affixed to brand-new chrome-finished Asanti AF162 wheels, the calipers have been finished in black and have an adorning silver Prowler logo. The wheels measure 19-inches in the front and 22-inches in the back. Titan Motorsports also replaced the factory roof with a new custom soft-top covering. The car was then waxed for a nice little photo shoot before they shipped it back to the owner. Check out the bespoke Plymouth Prowler basking in the sun in the photos below.
