Last V8 Sedan Produced on Assembly Line
At a formal gathering in Brampton’s Assembly Plant in Ontario, the ultimate episode of an iconic American motor vehicle was celebrated. The final Chrysler 300C came off the line – a classy sedan imbued with Deep Velvet Red colour – concluding its impressive 70-year history. As well, by the end of this month, production for all 2023 Chrysler 300 versions will similarly be done.
Last September, the automaker unveiled its final version for the year, an exclusive V8-driven trim, the 2023 300C. This offered a 6.4-liter Hemi engine and was available in just 2,000 units for US buyers and a mere 200 units for Canadian buyers. All cars were sold out within a span of 12 hours.
The iconic Chrysler 300C has its place in history solidified as an original muscle car embodying signature American luxury. Chris Feuell, Chief Executive Officer of the Chrysler brand, exclaimed with joy that “As we witness the final HEMI-powered 300C being assembled at our Brampton assembly facility, we look to the future of the Chrysler brand progressing to a fantastic and sustainable all-electric vision within the Stellantis Dare Forward 2030 plan.”
The now-known generation 300 arrived on the scene in 2011, making it one of the longest-operating products purchasable in mint condition. To everyone’s surprise, every Chrysler 300 remains sold for a 12 percent markup beyond its MSRP. Rumor has it a new electric sedan will supplant the 300; yet, hardly any data is available at this time regarding that EV.
