Some say that the new Chrysler 300 is a Bentley rip-off. That is false.

Here is the 1998 Chrysler Chronos concept car

New Chrysler 300C SRT8

Now the 57 300C

The grilles of both Chryslers (57 and 05) look similar.

Notice the lines in the middle of the 57 and 05 Chrysler's hoods.

Also notice the rectangular taillights of both cars.

The front end styling of the new Chrysler 300 is very similar to the front end styling of the 1998 Chrysler Chronos concept except for the slant of the new one.

The Bentley Arnage, the current big Bentley sedan, came out as a 1998 model that used an underpowered (when compared to the old OHV turbocharged V-8) turbocharged BMW 4.4l V-8.

"Named for one of the most challenging corners on the Le Mans racing circuit, the Arnage was fittingly introduced at the French circuit in April of 1998." from

"Right now, the only other car selling in the low 40s that approaches the joy we get from the Chrysler is the lightweight, uncompromised Lotus Elise."

Silver and Black might not be the only exterior colors available for the 300C SRT8.

Yeah, those SRT8s are awesome!! I work at a chrysler dealership in Arlington, VA and had the opportunity to drive them (even though it was 5 miles from the inventory lot to the dealership parking lot) 425HP isn't just for show. the autostick is pretty fun to use, and the handling is really good. it rides better than my mom's mercedes. We actually have 2-3 of them instock. usually there's a $2000 markup, but i sold one for $1000 over cost. if anyone's interested, email me

I know for certain we have 1 black and 1 metallic silver. the 3rd one might be another silver, but i think it might have been sold today.
