Chrysler Sends Off 300C With HEMI-Powered Limited Edition

Apart from the Dodge Challenger and Charger, Chrysler is also saying goodbye to its long-serving 300C sedan. Marking that occasion (as well as the 70-year legacy of the Chrysler 300), the automaker has come up with a limited-edition variant powered by a 485-horsepower, 644 Nm 6.4-liter HEMI V8 engine.

Limited to just 2,200 units—2,000 units for the U.S. and 200 for Canada, this rear-wheel drive sedan reaches the century mark in about 4.3 seconds, the quarter mile in 12.4 seconds, and a top speed of 257 km/h (160 mph).

The naturally-aspirated engine is may be paired with Chrysler’s fuel-efficient TorqueFlite 8-speed automatic, but it does get additional performance features including four-piston Brembo brakes, a limited slip differential, active damping suspension, and black, rounded exhaust tips that accent its active exhaust system.

Outside, the this 300C gets a new tri-colored badge, 20-inch forged alloy wheels, and black chrome accents on the grille and lower fascia. Black head- and taillight bezels complete the exterior changes. Inside, the leather seats come embossed with the new 300C logo. Silver stitching is also found on the doors, instrument panel, while carbon fiber and piano black accents accentuate the interior.

The 300C packs ventilated front seats, a 19-speaker Harman Kardon sound system, and an 8.4-inch Uconnect infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. It also comes with advanced driver assist functionalities.

Pricing for the U.S. starts at USD 55,000 (P 3.148 million). As previously mentioned, there are no plans to bring this limited edition 300C outside of North America.
