This is the next-generation Chrysler 300C, which is expected to be launched within 18 months.
This official computer rendering of the new car featured in the ‘viability plan’, which Chrysler submitted to US Treasury as part of its application for $5bn of government loans.
Chrysler has also hinted that Alfa Romeo could use the new rear-drive 300C platform and its all-new Phoenix V6 family of engines as part of its planned ‘global alliance’ with Fiat Auto.
The chassis would underpin a replacement for Alfa’s defunct 166 flagship.
Although the exterior is recognisably based on the current 300C, it does get completely new front and rear styling, showing hints of the recent 200C concept car.
Inside, the interior has been completely redesigned with a softer, more upmarket look. The option of wood, leather and chrome trimming will push the 300C towards more a conventional interpretation of luxury, rather than the stark, Germanic interior of the current model.
