The 300C Hurst Edition features the latest in innovation and refinement. The engine that is the heart of the 300C has been equipped with a wide range of performance enhancements designed to pump up the volume of the HEMI V-8. Balancing the power of the Chrysler 300C Hurst Edition are Stainless Steel Brakes Tri Power three piston billet calipers working in concert with large 13.5 inch drilled and slotted rotors, ensuring that it can stop as quickly as it accelerates.
