The last Chrysler 300C has rolled off the line at the Brampton (Ontario) Assembly Plant, with Brampton team members gathered to commemorate the final car—a Velvet Red 2023 Chrysler 300C.

The 6.4L, Hemi-powered 2023 Chrysler 300C, first announced at the 2022 North American International Auto Show, pays tribute to the nearly 70-year legacy of the Chrysler 300, as well as the Chrysler 300C’s crucial role in the 300 lineup as one of the seminal muscle cars, officials stated.

Reservations for the special-edition 2023 Chrysler 300C were fulfilled in just 12 hours after the 2022 vehicle reveal, with a limited-production run of only 2,000 units offered in the U.S. and 200 available in Canada.

First introduced in 1955 and reborn in 2005, the Chrysler 300 blends American luxury and performance. The Chrysler 300C arrived in 1957, marking a milestone for the 300 line, powered by a standard-equipment 392-ci, 375-hp Hemi.

The re-introduction of the Chrysler 300 in 2005 also featured the rebirth of the 300C model and marked the return of the Hemi engine to the Chrysler brand after 50 years, in the form of a 5.7L, 340-hp power plant, officials noted.

The 2011 Chrysler 300C upped output to 363 hp, and the 2023 Chrysler 300C—returning to the 300 lineup after a two-year hiatus—honors the powerful legacy of its forbears by delivering 485 hp and 475 pound-feet of torque, a quarter-mile mark of 12.4 seconds and a top speed of 160 mph.

“Chrysler brand is proud to mark the legacy of the Chrysler 300C as a true automotive icon, one of the original muscle cars representing bold American luxury,” said Chris Feuell, Chrysler brand chief executive officer. “As we celebrate the last HEMI-powered 300C off the line with our Brampton team members, we’re also excited to work together as Chrysler brand moves forward to a sustainable all-electric future as part of the Stellantis Dare Forward 2030 strategic plan.”
