Sorry, V10 fans. Turns out that the Chrysler 300 SRT10 that we all thought would be a SEMA debut is actually a one-off car created by a Dodge dealership near Salt Lake City.
With a new 300 around the corner, it seemed strange for Chrysler to release an “old” look car than a brand-spanking new design. Furthermore, the 300 in question looks more like a standard 300 than a real SRT-8, with the more aggressive fascia and integrated dual exhaust. It turns out that the car was originally a V6 powered “Touring” model before it got the big V10 swap.
The good news is that the car is privately owned, and it’s conceivable that the car may one day be for sale.

Chrysler has just released a short video of a very special Chrysler 300. At first look it appears to be little more than a standard 300 with some oversized rims. But wait, that’s not an SRT8 badge on the back, but an SRT10 badge, suggesting the Viper’s 8.3-liter V10 engine is under the hood.
Posted on Chrysler’s official YouTube page there’s no other info about the car but we have to think the release of the video just a few weeks ahead of the SEMA show is hardly a coincidence. That being said, if it’s at SEMA we’ll be sure to bring you more on the Viper-powered 300 with complete coverage starting November 2nd. In the mean time, check out our complete SEMA Preview here and hit the jump for a short video teaser of the 300 SRT10.
