Description

The Chrysler 300 is a full-size luxury sedan produced by Chrysler. Designed by Ralph Gilles in 2001, and first shown at the 2003 New York Auto Show as a concept car, sales in the United States began in April 2004. The 300 was Chrysler's first rear-wheel-drive full-sized sedan since the discontinuation of the Chrysler Newport of 1981. The 2011 second generation model was sold as the "Lancia Thema" in Europe, except in the United Kingdom and Ireland, where it was sold as the Chrysler 300C.

The top-of-the-line 300C version uses a 5.7 L (345 cu in) Hemi V8. Using the Multidisplacement System (MDS), this engine can run on four cylinders when less power is needed in order to reduce total fuel consumption. The USEPA-rated (United States Environmental Protection Agency) fuel consumption of the 300C is: 15 miles per US gallon (16 L/100 km) in the city, and 23 miles per US gallon (10 L/100 km) on the highway. When all eight cylinders are needed, the 300C can make 340 hp (250 kW) and 390 lb·ft (530 N·m) torque. It uses a five-speed automatic transmission and comes standard with 18-inch chrome-clad alloy wheels. The HEMI engine includes a pushrod induction tube, located on the side of the engine-block. This tube makes the 300C more fuel efficient and quicker, because of the air being "pulled and pushed" into the engine's induction area. The engine uses the HEMI, or double rocker configuration, with a cam-in-block, overhead valve (OHV) pushrod design. There are two spark plugs per cylinder to promote efficient fuel/air mixture burn and thereby reduce emissions.

This Hot Wheels model is a so-called Blings. A "Blings" is a 'tooned (from "cartooned") model: it has large wheels and its length is very short compared to its height. A special new wheel was introduced in the Blings series: the BLING. Due to the large wheels, Bling models are very fast on the track.

The casting was retooled in 2015, with the lower bumper now being a separate piece of the body and the headlights now being part of the windshield piece as opposed to being molded into the body.
