Chrysler designers are more than just aware of the brand’s long and storied history; they often take direct inspiration from time-tested models of the past. Sometimes today’s designers even pay direct homage to their predecessors. Case in point, the Chrysler 300S Turbine Concept, a vehicle built to commemorate the 50th anniversary of a true Chrysler legend—the 1963 Chrysler Turbine.

With a number of intentional styling cues, the Chrysler 300S Turbine Concept unmistakably recalls the contrast of the historic two-tone original. Features of the Concept include:

  • Turbine Copper exterior paint in matte finish
  • Gloss Black painted roof
  • 22” Turbine wheels with polished face and painted pockets
  • Billet grille
  • Darkened headlights and tail lamps
  • Platinum mirror caps
