2005 Chrysler 300C Hurst Edition

September 2004
Bonsall, CA
By Larry Weiner of
Performance West Group

Working in conjunction with the DaimlerChrysler Corporation and the Hurst division of Mr. Gasket Company, Performance West Group is proud to introduce the Chrysler 300C Hurst Edition Concept.  Based on the new 2005 Chrysler 300C,  the Hurst Edition symbolizes not only the return of the HEMI engine in a Chrysler automobile, but marks the beginning of a new chapter in the history of the legendary letter series that spans 50 years. Like the original 1955 Chrysler C 300, the 300C Hurst Edition signals the dawn of a new era in muscular Chrysler high performance automobiles that rely on brains and brawn, matching agility with incredible power.

 

     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.  Complementing the brake upgrades are modular 22” Oasis Forged Wheels, Toyo Proxes S/T  directional tires, lowered suspension by Eibach and stiffer anti sway bars by Hotchkis Performance.  The result is a superbly balanced driving machine.

     In a tribute to the 1970 Chrysler 300 Hurst, the exterior is finished in House of Kolor White Pearl, accented with Hurst Gold Pearl.  Open the door and the interior welcomes you to a familiar, yet thoroughly modern environment. The unmistakable Hurst Shifter that actuates the five speed transmission offers the opportunity to enjoy effortless driving or precise hands on gear changing, while a Katzkin hand crafted custom leather interior mirrors the theme established on the exterior, offering a sumptuous, refined environment that befits a vehicle of this caliber.

     While it pays homage to the original C 300, the Chrysler 300C Hurst Edition is totally modern, and showcases the latest in automotive technology.  The result is a genuine American big bore HEMI V8 rear wheel drive automobile that will ignite the passion of millions of classic performance enthusiasts while singing its siren song to a new generation.  The 300C Hurst Edition is more than a legend revisited; it marks the return of the authentic high performance Chrysler.
