The Chrysler 300C is a large luxury car, also known in Europe as the Lancia Thema, which came to the UK in 2005 and was available to buy as a saloon or an estate.

A super-hot SRT-8 model version was also launched in 2006 which was fitted with a 6.1-litre V8 with 420bhp which enabled the car to sprint from 0-62mph in just five seconds.

In 2012 the second generation model arrived and was available to buy in saloon guise only, changes to the design were slight with its large grille, big bumpers and square-like profile remaining.

The 300C offers luxury and refinement in a segment that expects nothing less, rivalling the likes of the Audi A6, BMW 5 Series and Mercedes-Benz E-Class. Available in two trims; Limited and Executive, interior highlights include leather upholstery, double panoramic sunroof, wood finish on the dashboard and controls and heated/cooled cupholders.
