As the Chrysler brand prepares to embrace an electric future, the 2023 Chrysler 300C stands as a tribute to the internal combustion engine (ICE) era for the brand. This limited-edition sedan, powered by an iconic 6.4-liter (392 cubic-inch) HEMI® SRT V8, has already become a sought-after collector’s item. While its initial sales were swift, interest rates and changing market dynamics have prompted some owners to part with their vehicles, making for a unique and surprising find at one New Jersey Acura dealership.
The 2023 Chrysler 300C is a swan song for the Chrysler brand’s ICE lineup, designed to pay homage to the brand’s “blue-collar luxury” standard. Boasting a 392 HEMI® engine under the hood, which churns out an impressive 485 horsepower and 475 lb.-ft. of torque, the 2023 Chrysler 300C is the most powerful factory-built Chrysler ever produced.
With only 2,000 units allocated for the United States, the 2023 Chrysler 300C quickly became a collector’s item. Enthusiasts and collectors across the country eagerly placed their orders for this limited-edition masterpiece. It’s no surprise that these orders were sold out within a mere 12 hours.
However, as production continued and interest rates began to rise, some buyers abandoned their orders, leading to a unique opportunity for dealerships.
One dealership in Bridgewater, New Jersey, is making headlines with a remarkable discovery. Bridgewater Acura currently has four white 2023 Chrysler 300Cs on their lot. These vehicles are being offered as pre-owned, each with fewer than 1,000 miles on the odometer, and appear in excellent condition.
It’s a puzzling sight to see these rare Chrysler sedans parked at an Acura dealership, but it’s a testament to the uniqueness and allure of the 2023 Chrysler 300C. Enthusiasts who may have missed the initial opportunity to own one of these powerful sedans can now explore the possibility of acquiring one of these four rare finds.
It also seems they have sold at least two others (a black and a velvet red) already.
According to Cars.com, approximately 160 of the 2,000 limited-edition 2023 Chrysler 300Cs are still available as new in dealers’ inventories. So, if you’re among those who have longed for this piece of automotive history, there is still time to secure one from a dealership.
The 2023 Chrysler 300C is not just a collector’s item; it’s a performance beast. With a remarkable 0 to 60 mph time of just 4.3 seconds, the 2023 Chrysler 300C delivers exhilarating acceleration. It can cover the quarter-mile in a mere 12.4 seconds and reach a top speed of over 160 mph. This sedan perfectly encapsulates the blend of power and luxury that made the Chrysler brand famous.
