The world first laid eye on this Chryslerconcept car in New York in 2003,and went onsale in America in 2004, the 300C hascollected up more than 20 awards including accolades such as Hippest Car and America's Most Wanted Automobile of 2005. This Chrsler 300C isloved by businessfolk and rap stars, first-time executive car buyers and jaded veterans looking for an alternative to the obvious German models. The majority of300Cs sold in the UK come with the Mercedes-supplied 3.0-litre V6 diesel 215bhp five-speed automatic gearbox. There has been some changes for 2008and include anew dashboard design, improved centre console with armrests and cupholders, interior LED lighting, new dark slate grey leather upholstery, a redesigned bootlid with lip spoiler, new tail-lights and automatic headlamps.
Right-hand drive 300Cs are built by Magna Steyr in Graz, Austria, to a high standard, and quality is way ahead of that in other Chrysler products if not quite up there with the 5-Series and A6 in terms of the soft-touch, feel-good factor. Based upon aChrysler-specific chassis (whichyou will also see inthe Dodge Magnum, Dodge Charger and upcoming Challenger),the majorityof the 300C's mechanicals have been derived from the Mercedes-Benz E-Class. The Chrysler 300C's electrics and electronics are shared with Mercedes models, and the five-speed automatic gearbox and diesel engine are also Daimler-supplied. All these items and components are well-proven.
The front-engined, rear-wheel-drive 300C is a fine driver's car, with its good weight balance, well-contained body roll, direct steering and adept cornering abilities. It feels its size - and 1800kg-odd weight - but it is nonetheless agile and easy to manoeuvre despite being five metres long and almost two metres wide. The new-generation five-speed automatic gearbox has a sequential-shift function, though it is responsive and reasonably intuitive in fully-auto mode. Progress through the gears is smooth and quiet. The 3.0-litre diesel engine (215bhp) has received piezo-electric fuel injection and a particulate filter. It delivers a stonking 376lb ft of torque, giving loads of mid-range pulling power and a 0-60mph sprint time of 7.6 seconds (8.6 seconds for the Touring). Top speed is 143mph (139mph Touring).
