Since its introduction in the 1950s, the Chrysler 300 letter series has been synonymous for its fusion of luxury and performance. And with production ceasing after the 2023 model year, Chrysler celebrates the 300’s legacy with the limited production 300C. And only a lucky few will get to experience the 300C since only 2,000 will be created for the U.S. and a mere 200 for the Canadian market.
“We’re celebrating the Chrysler 300 and it’s iconic legacy in the automotive world,” said Chris Feuell, Chrysler brand chief executive officer. “The Chrysler 300 changed the automotive world in so many ways, and we will carry that spirit of ingenuity forward as we transform Chrysler with a fully electrified future and breakthrough customer experiences.”
The 2023 Chrysler 300C will be available in Gloss Black, Velvet Red, and Bright White. A new tri-colored 300C badge adorns the grille and rear decklid. Black chrome accents embellish the grille, lower fascia, headlamps, and taillight bezels.
Inside, the cabin features black Laguna leather seats sporting the new 300C logo and silver stitching. Silver stitching is also showcased on the instrument panel and doors, with carbon fiber and Piano Black flair on the interior bezels.
The 2023 Chrysler 300C features a naturally aspirated 6.4-liter HEMI V8 with 485 horsepower and 475 lb.-ft. of torque. This powerplant is paired with a TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission. This combination allows the 2023 Chrysler 300C to sprint from 0 to 60 in 4.3 seconds and rip the quarter mile in 12.4 seconds. Top speed of this behemoth is 160 mph.
Standard performance equipment includes red four-piston Brembo brakes, active damping suspension, a 3.09 limited slip differential, and black, round exhaust tips.
A luxury performance car of this caliber should include plenty of amenities. The 2023 Chrysler 300C comes equipped with a 19-speaker Harman Kardon audio system, 8.4-inch Uconnect infotainment system, and Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Heated and ventilated seats and a heated steering wheel are also standard.
