Chrysler unveiled today the 300C eco style today at the Geneva Motor Show. The model is individually accessorized with eco-friendly materials such as cork, bamboo, recycled jute carpeting and suede seat inserts and feature refurbished wheels while providing high-end luxury and elegant design.
The 300C eco style is painted in Vanilla exterior color with black roof and features unique pewter finished exterior accents and large 20-inch wheels.

Startech revealed at the Geneva Motor Show a tuning kit based on the current generation Chrysler 300C. The tuning kit adds front spoiler and custom-tailored mounting elements with daylight running lights, giving the 300C a more sportier look.
The Startech Chrysler 300C is powered a 3.0-liter V6 common-rail turbodiesel engine that bumps power output from standard 218 hp (214 hp SAE net) / 160 kW to 262 hp (259 hp SAE net) / 193 kW at 4,000 rpm. Even more important for everyday driving is the increase in torque from 510 Nm to 580 Nm (376 to 428 lb-ft), available already between 1,600 and 2,800 rpm.
The sprint from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) is shortened from 7.6 (wagon: 7.9) seconds for the production car to 7.2 (Touring: 7.5) seconds with STARTECH SD6 tuning. Top speed grows to 238 (wagon: 232) km/h (149 and 145 mph).

At the Geneva Motor Show 2007 the Chrysler Group and JAB ANSTOETZ will present an extraordinary design-study on the basis of the Chrysler Crossfire that you will be able to see at the Karmann stand.
The challenge was the idea to equip an automobile like the Chrysler Crossfire with materials and textiles out of the living area. The materials and carpets used in the car were provided by JAB Anstoetz a leading fabric designer worldwide
They styled the Chrysler Crossfire as a completely new car. JAB ANSTOETZ directed the attention on the variety of structures and textures and created a harmonious color draft and textile draft that delimits itself clearly from the standard cars.
That’s what they said. The exterior look nice. But about the interior combination...is not quite nice. If you know that the design of the center console in the Crossfire is very similar with the one from the past Mercedes SLK, you should think that the bad thing is to use strange materials. The snake-skin is very scary and the blue coat looks like it only last for a few times. The combination is also at least strange. The flashy brown buttons are from a cheap toy, and the carpets may stop you driving. If you need to drive this car you may search for a method to drive from the outside.
Exactly a year since the Chrysler Group introduced the 425-horsepower (317 kW) Chrysler 300C SRT8 for Europe and other markets outside of North America at the 2005 Geneva Show, the Chrysler Group has confirmed that the versatile 300C Touring wagon will also be available as a high-performance SRT model.
