Amid a sea of uninspiring special editions, Chrysler apparently hid pictures of the redesigned 2012 (or 2013) 300C at the North American International Auto Show.

Caught by MPGomatic, while filming the Chrysler Delta (aka Lancia Delta), the image seems to show the front headlight (with possible integrated LED turn signals) and grille of the upcoming 300C. The other pictures are believed to be shots of the Chrysler 200C EV Concept, which debuted at NAIAS 2009.

As you may recall, when Chrysler entered bankruptcy, they released a rendering of the redesigned 300 (then labeled a 2010 model) as part of the company's viability plan. A few months later, an interior image was unveiled at the 2009 New York Auto Show.

Engine options are expected to include a 280 hp 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 and a revised 5.7-liter HEMI V8 with at least 360 hp. According to Chrysler, the V6 will offer a 22 percent improvement in fuel economy (over the current 3.5-liter V6), which translates into an estimated EPA rating of 21 mpg city and 30 mpg highway.
