2006 Chrysler 300C SRT8

Momentum Continues, with a Dose of SRT Performance and 6.1-Liter HEMI Power

Ultimate American sedan performance

Builds on momentum of Chrysler, HEMI and Street and Racing Technology

SRT performance: 0-60 mph in low-five-second range, 0-100-0 in mid-16-second range

It wasn#39;t long after the debut of the HEMI-powered Chrysler C300 in 1955 that it became known as the banker#39;s hot rod. The key characteristics of that car-a powerful HEMI V-8 engine, performance-tuned ride and handling and premium amenities-are also key to the 2006 Chrysler 300C SRT8. And, there#39;s quite a bit more.

Introduced in 2005, the Chrysler 300C SRT8 was the first Street and Racing Technology (SRT) vehicle to be powered with the 6.1-liter HEMI V-8, which offers 85 more horsepower – 25 percent more power – than the 5.7-liter HEMI. But SRT performance is more than just straight-line quickness.

There#39;s no other premium sedan that delivers the comfort, convenience and performance numbers that the 2006 Chrysler 300C SRT8 delivers, said Jeff Bell, Vice President-Chrysler Marketing, Chrysler Group. In terms of affordability, no one else even comes close to delivering the Chrysler 300C SRT8#39;s combination of performance and value.

The 2006 Chrysler 300C SRT8 is a complete package for the customer who wants awesome performance in an award-winning sedan loaded with comfort and style, said Dan Knott, Director – Street and Racing Technology. With its SRT-engineered 6.1-liter HEMI engine and Brembo brakes, it#39;s engineered for incredible acceleration and stopping power.

For 2006, the Chrysler 300C SRT8 is available in a new Silver Steel exterior color. Also new for 2006 are a standard tire pressure monitoring system, an available Kicker high-performance audio system and available rear-seat video system.


The Chrysler 300C SRT8#39;s 425-horsepower (317 kW), normally aspirated 6.1-liter HEMI has the highest output for its size of any naturally aspirated V-8 engine ever offered by the Chrysler Group. Its 69.8 horsepower-per-liter rating exceeds even that of the legendary 1966 Street HEMI. Torque is rated at 420 lb.-ft. (569 Nm).

Although the Chrysler HEMI was born in the 1950s and entered into legend in the 1960s and #39;70s, today#39;s version took much of its inspiration from the original-particularly the namesake hemispherical combustion chambers that provide power and efficiency.

When SRT powertrain engineers set out to develop a more powerful HEMI for the Chrysler 300C SRT8, they were mindful of the engine#39;s heritage, which led to adopting traditional HEMI engine cues including an orange-painted cylinder block and black valve covers.

SRT engineers who developed the Chrysler 300C SRT8#39;s engine achieved more horsepower by adding more cubic inches, increasing the compression ratio, and redesigning the cylinder head, intake and exhaust systems for better flow and increased engine speed.
