As the sun sets on an illustrious 68-year legacy, Chrysler commemorates the iconic Chrysler 300 with the 2023 Chrysler 300C, a final tribute to the luxury and performance that the brand has represented for decades. This special edition sedan, powered by a mighty 6.4-liter (392 cubic-inch) HEMI® V8 engine, delivers an impressive 485 horsepower and 475 lb.-ft. of torque, making it a force to be reckoned with on the roads.
Underneath its sleek exterior, the 2023 Chrysler 300C packs a formidable punch with its 6.4-liter HEMI V8 engine, mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission. This combination enables the 300C to sprint from 0 to 60 mph in a mere 4.3 seconds, complete the quarter-mile in just 12.4 seconds at 118 mph, and achieve an impressive drag-limited top speed of 160 mph. Emphasizing performance, the 300C boasts red four-piston Brembo brakes, a 3.09 limited-slip differential, an active damping suspension, and a captivating active exhaust system with black rounded exhaust tips, providing a powerful and resonating sound.
Since its debut in 1955 and its revival in 2005, the Chrysler 300 has become synonymous with American luxury and performance. Now, as the 300 bids farewell to its production, the 2023 Chrysler 300C stands as a symbol of its remarkable heritage. With only 2,000 units destined for the United States and 200 for the Canadian market, this special edition marks the end of an era for the HEMI-powered Chrysler lineup.
Unlike its Dodge counterparts, the 2023 Charger and Challenger models, the 300C lacks special “Last Call” badges. Instead, Chrysler surprised 300C owners with a distinctive “Certificate of Authenticity” featuring signatures from Chrysler CEO, Chris Feuell, and Head of Stellantis Design, Ralph Gilles.
Enclosed in a leatherette cover adorned with the iconic Chrysler winged logo, each certificate highlights essential details such as the car’s Vehicle Identification Number (VIN), color, dealer of delivery, build date, and delivery date. A reflective 300C seal adds a touch of elegance, while a reflective 300C serves as the background, accentuating the exclusivity of this unique memento.
