This year at Chicago Autoshow Chrysler’s parts arm Mopar is celebrating its 75th anniversary with a couple of customized cars. This Chrysler 300 is like the cherry on the top of Mopar’s cake.
Powered by the 363 horsepower 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 engine, this Mopar ’12 300 is not just a show car, and will be available from summer 2012, priced from $49,700. It’s limited to 500 units though.
Features on the outside include a gloss black paint finish with Mopar Blue A-line body-side stripes, 20-inch by 8-inch Mopar forged-aluminum wheels, “Mopar 75” fender badges feature the Mopar Blue “omega” logo as well as a “Mopar Design” badge on the deck lid.
Inside you get a black cabin with Mopar Blue accents throughout, Mopar’s Katzkin perforated leather, thick-rimmed steering wheel with die-cast paddle shifters (auto) and a unique Mopar shifter (manual), plus more commemorative badges.
This limited edition also gets the new Uconnect system with the segment’s largest touchscreen display (8.4-inches) and next-generation mobile infotainment, connectivity and multimedia features, 506-watt Alpine nine-speaker premium audio system, and a whole range of safety features.
Customers who purchase one of these 500 limited-edition Chrysler 300 models will receive a personalized owner kit in a customized Mopar ’12 300 box, Mopar-branded key fobs and Mopar ’12 300 merchandise. The kit will include a certificate with the vehicle identification number (VIN), exact date of manufacture and the number of the vehicle. The kit also will include an original sketch of the car signed by the designer and a brochure highlighting the unique features of the vehicle.
