This 2012 300C SRT8 is 0.5 inches (13 mm) lower than a standard 300C and rides on 20-inch forged-aluminum wheels.

Inside there's a carbon trim highlights, a leather steering wheel and a new blue-lit instrument panel.

A Black Chrome package will be an available option on this model when it goes on sale in North America in the third quarter of this year.
