John Varvatos, fashion designer, tricks out Chrysler 300c
Fashion designer John Varvatos partnered with Chrysler to build a 300c inspired by his own clothing collection.
The Varvatos 300c features 20-inch wheels in a carbon satin finish, seats and door trim lined with black woven leather, hand-wrapped leather on the instrument panel, console lid, and door arm rest, and a two-tone steering wheel with accent 360 ring. A Beats by Dr. Dre stereo system is also included.
Engine options for the Chrysler 300c include either a 3.6-liter engine, rated at 292 horsepower or a 5.7-liter Hemi delivering 360 horsepower. It's mated to a an all new automatic transmission that helps the car reach 31 mpg, despite all the ponies under the hood.
No word if the Varvatos concept will go into production, but if it does, the sticker price could be well north of $45,000 for this high fashion ride.
