Mopar brought a very black Chrysler 300 to the Chicago Auto Show.
Chrysler Group's in-house tuning department brought four models to the 2012 Chicago Auto Show. The most prominent of the quadruplets was the murdered-out 2012 Chrysler 300. The black Chrysler takes advantage of plenty of Mopar parts, including a firmer suspension, high-performance brake pads and Goodyear Eagle F1 rubbers wrapped around Gloss Black 20-inch forged-aluminum wheels. Thanks to a new final-drive ratio of 3.91:1, the 363hp 5.7-liter HEMI V8 engine can now propel the 300 from 0-60mph in just over five seconds.
The blacked-out exterior is highlighted by Mopar Blue body-side stripes, a theme that continues inside where black is accented by blue throughout. The 2012 Mopar Chrysler 300 is priced at $49,700. Only 500 limited edition Chrysler 300 models will be built with sales starting this summer.
