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
