I already showed you the Charger SRT Satin Vapor Edition , and now I present the 300 SRT with the same package. Like its Charger sibling, the 300 SRT Satin Vapor model has a set of Black Satin Vapor Chrome-finished 20-by-9-inch, split-five-spoke wheels, and a series of satin-black elements that include the mirror caps, rear spoiler and roof. It also shares the red Brembo calipers and grey "6.4L HEMI" badge.
Buyers get three color choices for this special model — Bright White, Billet Silver and Granite Crystal — and they can also opt for a black body stripe for a little extra style.
Inside the cabin, the 300 SRT Satin Vapor Edition gets black Nappa leather-trimmed seats wiyh ultra-suede inserts, and matte-carbon and piano-black inserts in the instrument panel, door bezels and center console. Unfortunately, Chrysler didn’t give us any looks at the interior, but I am sure I’ll get a peek sometime soon, and I’ll share the images with you.
Under its hood, this special edition carries the same 6.4-liter HEMI V-8 that cranks out 470 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque.
The Satin Vapor model hits showrooms in the second quarter of this year at a $2,300 premium on the 300 SRT’s base price of $45,900. That comes to a grand total of $48,200.

Like the rest of its brethren in the SRT lineup, the 300 SRT pumps out a pair of 470s in horsepower and torque, which is enough to get the comfy sedan to 60 mph in under five seconds, through the quarter-mile in the high-12s and to a top speed of 175 mph. Doing the shifting is a five-speed autobox that also has paddle shifters for a faux row-your-own experience.
The 300 SRT bases at $45,900, making this combo muscle car and luxo-sedan a relative bargain for
