Chrysler is teasing a limited model with "C" in the name. Not many things that could be.

new chrysler 300c performance model all but confirmed
Chrysler

Dodge may have spent the past decade building increasingly faster and wider variants of its flagship Charger, but Chrysler’s equivalent 300 has not been so lucky. The Charger has been both Hellcatted and over-Hellcatted, while the full-sized Chrysler sedan has actually gotten slower since its second generation debuted in 2011, dropping both the 300C and its segment-topping SRT-8 variant. With the end of gasoline-powered performance rapidly approaching at Stellantis, that may finally change.

The wheel and Brembo brake in the teaser could theoretically be attached to just about anything, sure. But, the caption on Monday’s Chrysler teaser seems to indicate that this is, specifically, an iteration of the 300C. The teaser adds that “limited quantities” will be available in Spring 2023, implying that this is some sort of ultimate send-off for the 300.

What form could it take? The previous 300C SRT-8 boasted 470 horsepower from a 6.4-liter V-8, but the standard for Stellantis performance has increased exponentially in the eight years since that car went out of production. The current equivalent Charger, the SRT 392, boasts 485 horsepower and seems like the most logical landing point to send off the 300C badge as we know it. However, Stellantis has been putting its Hellcat V-8 in increasingly strange situations for the past few years. A more ambitious final 300 could boast that engine, a 6.2-liter supercharged V-8 that starts at 707 hp and is currently available in a Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye producing 797 hp.
