Chrysler 300C Pricing and Specs
The 'modern' Chrysler 300C revived a long line of high-powered ‘Letter Cars’ from the famous US brand, starting with the original 300C way back in 1955. Launching in Australia as a large, 5.7-litre V8-powered, rear-wheel drive, four door sedan in 2005, it was joined by a wagon version the following year (which didn’t stay around for long). A ‘high waistline, small glasshouse’ design gave the car a distinct, heavy-hitting appearance. An SRT-8 model, powered by a 6.1-litre 'Hemi' V8 engine, arrived in early 2006, delivering 317kW (425hp) and a claimed sub-five second 0-100km/h acceleration time. A 'Series II" update was launched in 2008, bringing new instruments, and revised centre console. It ran until 2012.

Best replacement for a Calais
With local production shutting down the big-car choices are getting fewer and fewer, but right now you can still buy a Calais if that's what you like. You can also buy an equivalent Falcon or Toyota Aurion. There are more expensive cars, from the likes of BMW, Mercedes-Benz and Audi etc. that would suit, but they come with a much higher price tag than a Calais. Others you could try are a Skoda Superb, a Honda Accord V6 Luxury if you're prepared to give up a little in size, and there's also the Chrysler 300C.Show more
