Guys Have Some Fun with Bentley Rolls-Royce Flying Spur Chrysler Driver [NSFW]


Read more

When Chrysler introduced the modern era 300 sedan back in 2004, a number of people detected certain styling similarities with Rolls-Royce and to a lesser degree, Bentley models as well, with many tuners and individuals going as far as using the Pentastar saloon as a base for cloning the British limousines.

You've likely seen many of them on these pages over time – if you haven't, you can take a look at these samples here and here. Unless you don’t go out much or don't follow the automotive industry that closely, it's very easy to spot these replicas. When you combine a Chrysler 300 body with Rolls-Royce Phantom styling and Bentley badges, you kind of make it easy even for the uninitiated…

In the video posted online, we watch the driver of a white Chrysler 300 approaching a blue sedan that had parked right in front of him. He then smashed the mirror before breaking the window – all while we hear the two people who were filming the scene giggling their heads off.

A 72-Year-Old CEO's 2013 Chrysler 300 is "Amazing" and "Like No Other"


Read more

Each decade has its own style and flavors, and even though certain fashion trends come back in style from time to time, we think that some things are better left in the past. Of course, that's our opinion and you may freely disagree with it.

We're told this 2013 Chrysler 300 sedan that we found on eBay was "custom factory built for a retiring 72 year old entrepreneur" and CEO, who obviously had some fond automotive memories from the 1970s and 1980s.

Hear the Hemi in New POV Test Drive of Chrysler's 300 SRT8


Read more

The Chrysler 300 SRT8 is a cut-price alternative to the German super saloons. It gets unique styling, a beefy V8 engine, stiffer than normal suspension and big brakes. The result, according to most reviews I’ve seen, is not quite up there with the best of the breed, but it is still comfortable and with its 6.4-liter 470 hp Hemi V8, it’s fast enough and sounds great.

Poll: 2014 Chevrolet SS vs. Dodge Charger vs. Chrysler 300


Read more

For sure, there are plenty of sporty flavored, rear-wheel drive sedans in the market, but the first two cars that come to mind as direct competitors to the new 2014 Chevrolet SS are without question, the 2013 Dodge Charger and the 2013 Chrysler 300.

General Motors won't be releasing prices for its bow-tie-badged Holden Commodore SS V until later this year, though, we anticipate to the SS to carry a similar price tag to its Chrysler Group challengers in the non-luxury, rear-wheel drive performance sedan category.
