2010 Chrysler 300C SRT8: Elegant Design with World-class Performance:

The “face of Chrysler” continues to deliver outstanding performance to match the elegant design on this award-winning sedan. Benchmark performance, premium amenities and race-inspired styling all at an attractive price make the 2010 Chrysler 300C SRT8 unique in the marketplace. Powered by the Street and Racing Technology-engineered 425-horsepower 6.1-liter HEMI V-8, the 2010 Chrysler 300C SRT8 boasts performance-tuned world-class ride and handling, benchmark braking performance and premium interior appointments.

SRT performance figures include: 0-60 mph in the low five-second range, 0-100-0 mph 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 dampers, specially tailored spring rates and suspension bushings and large-diameter anti-sway bars. Front- and rear-suspension knuckles contribute to a ride height that’s lowered .5 inch 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 60-0 mph braking performance of approximately 110 feet. 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, as well as the specially designed rear deck-lid spoiler, which increases rear downforce without increasing drag. Other touches include body-color front and rear bumper inserts, body-color mirrors and door handles and unique SRT badging.
