About The Chrysler 300 SRT:
Introduced in 2005, Chrysler unleashed the 300C SRT8 to the public. The SRT (Street and Racing Technology) featured a host of performance upgrades and premium amenities. Powered by an 6.1-liter HEMI V-8 that produced 425 horsepower and 420 lb.-ft. of torque, the result was pure mopar muscle wrapped in a 4 door sedan. The 2005 Chrysler 300C SRT8 was capable of remarkable performance times: including 0 to 60 mph in the low five-second range, quarter-mile time in the high 13-second range and 0-100-0 mph in the mid 16-second range.
Included were many SRT-tuned performance upgrades, including larger-diameter anti-sway bars, specially tailored spring rates, Bilstein dampers, Brembo four-piston disc brakes at the front and rear, and 20-inch forged aluminum wheels shod with Goodyear F1 three-season tires.
On the inside standard features included front seats equipped with heat and memory functions, clad with performance suede inserts that secure occupants during spirited driving. Other features include an adjustable pedal cluster, "technical" leather trim on the steering wheel, shifter and door pulls, and special finishing on interior trim such as the center stack. Full instrumentation includes a 180 mph speedometer, tachometer and temperature gauges.
Exterior styling combined premium elegance with functional performance enhancements. Redesigned front and rear fascias included unmistakable SRT cues, such as air ducting for brake cooling, as well as the specially designed rear decklid spoiler, which increases rear downforce without increasing drag. Other touches include a body-color grille insert with chrome collar, body-color mirrors and door handles, and unique SRT badging. Available exterior colors for the 2005 Chrysler 300C SRT8 were Bright Silver and Brilliant Black. The interior was offered in a Light Graystone/Dark Slate combination.

About The Chrysler 300:
The first 300 gained its name from the 300 horsepower output of its specially modified HEMI V-8, the most power then available in an American production car. The 300 set Flying Mile and road course records at Daytona Beach, Florida, in 1955 and then dominated NASCAR competition in 1955 and 1956.
The 1956 Chrysler 300B, began the "Letter series", which continued until the 1965 300L. The letter car series was discontinued after the 1965 300L. It resumed for model year 1999, and later, in 2005, the 300 returned to rear wheel drive (RWD) Chryslers and continued use of a new 5.7L HEMI V-8. To commemorate the return to RWD with a HEMI V-8 this edition of the series was named the 300C, after the groundbreaking 1957 car. The Chrysler 300 was named Motor Trend Car of the Year in 2005.
