2023 Chrysler 300C Sold In 12 Hours, Waiting List Created

Well, that’s fast. Chrysler took just 12 hours to sell the 2,200 300C performance sedan it plans to build. Following its disclosure on September 13 at 6 p.m. EDT, a special page on the company’s website went live, allowing interested parties to claim it. The link is still up and running because even if all bookings have been fulfilled, you can sign up for a car by putting your name on the waiting list.

That means you still have a chance to claim one as long as enough people will cancel their preorders, of course. Chrysler CEO Chris Feuell said Motorcycle Trends all 2,000 vehicles destined for the United States and another 200 for Canada have been discussed after placing an undisclosed deposit. The car is offered in Bright White, Velvet Red and Gloss Black colors, with red Brembo brake calipers and a new tri-color 300C badge.

The 300C serves as the swan song of the full-size sedan as it will be retired after model year 2023. This high-performance version costs $55,000 before destination costs and will ship to customers the following spring. The non-C models still available for the last year have barely changed, although the entry-level Touring trim level can now be optionally owned with the SafeyTec Plus Group. It combines automatic wipers with front and rear parking assist, as well as automatic high beam, adaptive cruise control, and Forward Collision Warning with Active Braking. Chrysler features a six-speaker Alpine sound system with a 276-watt amplifier.

Stepping up to the 300C gives you some performance worthy of a large, heavy sedan that’s been around for centuries. It reaches 60 mph (96 km/h) in 4.3 seconds and completes the quarter mile in 12.4 seconds before hitting a maximum speed of 160 mph (278 km/h). That’s possible thanks to the HEMI 6.4-liter V8 with 485 hp and 475 lb-ft (644 Nm) channeled to the rear via an eight-speed automatic transmission.

Chrysler has the 2023 300C on display in Detroit at the North American International Auto Show through September 25.
