Chrysler 300 SRT Pacer 2019 detailed: Rear-drive V8 sedan gains throwback retro design

Powering the Chrysler 300 SRT Pacer is a 6.4-litre Hemi V8 with a 350kW/637Nm punch.

Chrysler Australia has uncovered its 300 SRT Pacer tribute car, which celebrates the 50th anniversary of the Australian-built 1969 Valiant Pacer.

Changes to the 300 SRT Pacer include a full exterior wrap in ‘Wild Yellow’ colour as a homage to the hue of the original car, while similar black stripes and ‘Pacer 392’ decals also feature on the outside.

Black wheels with red highlights are also fitted, again a reference to the components on the 1969 Valiant Pacer, but measure 20 inches in size and match the red accents on the front splitter and boot lid.

Motivation in the Chrysler 300 SRT Pacer comes from a 6.4-litre Hemi V8 – the same engine found in the standard car – with outputs reaching 350kW of power and 637Nm of torque.

The ‘Wild Yellow’ colour pays homage to the original VF Valiant Pacer. The ‘Wild Yellow’ colour pays homage to the original VF Valiant Pacer.

Paired to an eight-speed automatic gearbox, the new Pacer tribute car sends drive to the rear wheels and features launch control.

For reference, the original Valiant Pacer was powered by a 130kW 225 cubic inch slant six, matched to a three-speed manual gearbox.

Pricing and full specifications on the new car are yet to be revealed, but Chrysler says production will be limited on the 300 SRT Pacer.

Chrysler Australia boss Guillaume Drelon said: “We’re excited to bring to life a modern interpretation of an Australian classic, the Chrysler 300 SRT Pacer tribute car.

“Highlighting the signature details of the original, the Pacer tribute takes inspiration from the iconic design cues of the celebrated 1969 Valiant Pacer,” he said.
