1991 Chrysler 300 Concept news, pictures, specifications, and information

It's likely that you've heard about Chrysler's legendary 300-series vehicles. They represent much of what Chrysler has been built upon - power and luxury. In 1991, Chrysler designers set out to design a vehicle that encapsulated all of what the 300-series has stood for over the years. The result? The 300 concept car.

Úsing the 450 horsepower V10 under development for the Dodge Viper, the 300's inspiration came from the Dodge Viper, the 300's inspiration came from the Monteverdi High Speed, a four-door sedan built in Switzerland in the 70s by Peter Monteverdi. And no coincidentally, Chrysler Hemi engines powered those legendary cars.

The 300 rode on a 125.9-inch wheelbase and was 206.5 inches long. It was also the first concept car to have monster-sized wheels - the front wheels were 19 inches while the rear wheels were 20 inches.

The vehicle had enough gadgets to satisfy any British secret agent. There was a coded key car that, when inserted in the center console, opened a door to the ignition button. The rear seats had cell phones, headphones, a TV and a VCR.

As wîth most things; if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. As great as it might have been to build and produce the 300, its impracticalities to the real world kept it merely and inspiring concept car.
