The “face of Chrysler” continues to deliver outstanding performance to match the elegant design on this award-winning E-segment sport sedan.

Benchmark performance, premium amenities and race-inspired styling make the Chrysler 300C SRT8® distinctive in the marketplace. Powered by the Street and Racing Technology-engineered 317 kW 6.1-liter HEMI® V-8 paired with a five-speed Auto Stick transmission, the Chrysler 300C SRT8 boasts performance-tuned world-class ride and handling, benchmark braking performance and premium interior appointments.

SRT performance figures include: 0-100 kph in the low 5-second range, 0-160-0 kph in less than 17 seconds and 0.89g on the skid pad. The Chrysler 300C SRT8 is an iconic, award-winning sedan loaded with comfort and style. Interior appointments include the SRT-exclusive Electronic Vehicle Information Center (EVIC) with Performance Pages.

Chassis setup for the Chrysler 300C SRT8 is aimed at all-around performance, including SRT-tuned Bilstein monotube dampers, specially tailored spring rates and suspension bushings and large-diameter anti-sway bars for a firmly damped ride during performance driving for added driver control without compromising low-speed driving comfort. Front- and rear-suspension knuckles contribute to a ride height that’s lowered 12 mm from the Chrysler 300C. The Electronic Stability Control (ESC) has been SRT-tuned, resulting in the system-sensing lateral acceleration that effectively primes the system in anticipation of the next brake application.

Benchmark braking performance results from a four-wheel disc-brake system featuring performance calipers developed by Brembo, each equipped with four pistons for even clamping. The Chrysler 300C SRT8 has 360 mm x 32 mm vented rotors up front and 350 mm x 28 mm vented rotors in the rear. The result is 100-0 kph braking performance of less than 36 meters. The SRT-exclusive braking system includes brake-knockback mitigation software for even better track response.

Exterior styling combines sophisticated, premium elegance with functional performance enhancements. Front and rear fascias include unmistakable SRT cues, such as air ducting for brake cooling and the integrated rear deck-lid spoiler, which increases rear downforce without increasing drag. Other touches include body-color front and rear bumper inserts and wheel flares, body-color mirrors and door handles and unique SRT badging.
