Inside Design: Chrysler 300 Super S Concept:

What You Get When You Push The Performance In A HEMI Powered 300...

Style and sophistication can meld harmoniously with performance and attitude. For proof, take the Chrysler 300 Super S. The bold persona of the customized Chrysler 300 Super S began with a concept, aggressive front fascia. More than 300 unique “Easter eggs” are hidden on the Matte Black grille, where miniature Mopar “M” letters, painted Dark Hyper Black low gloss, dot the entire grille.

The lowered body (thanks to a Mopar coilover lowering kit) was planted on concept Mopar 22-inch wheels at the front and rear. Like the Mopar “M” grille lettering, production Mopar center caps were painted to match the Dark Hyper Black low gloss wheels, which were set off stunningly against the Matte Cerulean exterior finish. At the back, a concept rear valence and a deck-lid spoiler from the Mopar brand portfolio forced the tires to the pavement. Unique 300 Super S and Mopar Design badges rounded out the exterior appointments.

The aggressiveness of the exterior was paired with premium styling inside. Concept Katzkin light grey leather seats were trimmed in blue stitching, as were the armrests, with blue flourishes also featured on the side panels and instrument panel. The production 300’s rotary shifter was swapped out for a concept polystable T-handle shifter and the steering wheel replaced with a sportier, flat-bottom version. Production Mopar door sill guards carry the Chrysler logo, and premium carpet floor mats and a cargo mat feature metal badging.

Beneath the 300 Super S hood lurked a powerful beast. The 5.7-liter HEMI engine is beefed up with Mopar Stage 1, Stage 2 and Stage 3 Upgrade Kits, which exactly mimic the modifications and performance boosts delivered by Mopar Scat Pack Performance kits available for the 5.7-liter HEMI engine-equipped Dodge Challenger and Dodge Charger vehicles. Giving the car 428 horsepower and 442 lb.-ft of torque.

It is a shame that some of the design elements never made it into production on the Chrysler 300S. But this concept, definitely shows that the 300S can be just a sporty if not just as aggressive and menacing as its Dodge Charger sibling.
