(from Chrysler Press
Release) The Exclusive STARTECH Program for the New-Generation
The Chrysler 300C continues its successful existence in an updated
version. STARTECH (www.startech.de
) offers an exclusive and innovative customization program for the
new generation 300C sedan and wagon.
The front of the top-of-the-line Chrysler model becomes even more
striking with the addition of the STARTECH front spoiler and
custom-tailored mounting elements with daylight running lights. The
aerodynamic component plays more than just a visual role: At high
speeds the spoilers sophisticated design reduces lift on the front
axle. The refined STARTECH matrix chrome grille also contributes to
the great STARTECH look for both body styles of the 300C.
The STARTECH body conversion is complemented by elegant STARTECH
rocker panels. They calm the airstream along the sides of sedan and
wagon. One each side four integrated LED entry lights are activated
via the keyless fob or by pulling on a door handle. They make
entering and exiting the vehicle safer and more comfortable in the
On the sedan a roof spoiler visually stretches the roofline and
directs the slipstream to the rear spoiler lip, which on the
new-generation model is integrated into the trunk lid.
For the perfect integration of the two oval tailpipes of the
STARTECH stainless-steel exhaust the STARTECH designers have styled
custom-tailored elements for the rear aprons of sedan and wagon.
The thrilling STARTECH look for the new-generation Chrysler 300C is
rounded out by custom-tailored STARTECH Monostar IV wheels with
diameters of 20 or 22 inches. The largest tire/wheel combination
features the fully polished five-spoke wheels in size 9Jx22 with
tires in size 265/30 ZR 22.
STARTECH sport springs and rear shocks are specially calibrated to
the sporty tires and the specific engine installed in a particular
model. They lower the ride height of 300C sedan and wagon by some 40
millimeters and result in an excellent symbiosis of agile handling
and high ride comfort.
For the turbodiesel model 300C 3.0 CRD STARTECH offers powerful
performance tuning that works perfectly with the standard diesel
particulate filter and meets strict EURO IV emission limits. The SD6
tuning kit consists of an auxiliary electronic control unit. Thanks
to the included wire harness and detailed installation instructions
the processor-controlled module can be installed by any authorized
Chrysler dealer in less than an hour.
The SD6 kit bumps power output of the 3.0-liter V6 common-rail
turbodiesel engine from standard 218 hp (214 hp SAE net) / 160 kW to
262 hp (259 hp SAE net) / 193 kW at 4,000 rpm. Even more important
for everyday driving is the increase in torque from 510 Nm to 580 Nm
(376 to 428 lb-ft), available already between 1,600 and 2,800 rpm.
These impressive figures naturally benefit the performance of the
Chrysler 300C 3.0 CRD. The sprint from rest to 100 km/h (62 mph) is
shortened from 7.6 (wagon: 7.9) seconds for the production car to
7.2 (Touring: 7.5) seconds with STARTECH SD6 tuning. Top speed grows
to 238 (wagon: 232) km/h (149 and 145 mph).
The perfect complement to the performance tuning is the STARTECH
sport exhaust system with its two characteristic oval chrome-plated
tailpipes. The fully stainless-steel exhaust system produces a more
sonorous but always unobtrusive exhaust note.
Exclusive interior accents are yet another STARTECH domain. The
lineup of attractive accessories ranges from scuff plates with
illuminated STARTECH logo to a high-quality completion set for the
wood trim, and includes leather door trim and armrests. These are
joined by sporty elements such as a sport-steering-wheel, aluminum
shifter and pedal, as well as chrome-plated aluminum door-lock pins.
Additional customization requests are fulfilled by the STARTECH
upholstery shop. Among them are meticulously crafted fully leather
interiors made from especially soft and breathable Mastik and
Alcantara leathers, available in any color and design imaginable. A
special coating process allows altering the color of all plastic
