Back in March, Chrysler teamed up with fashion designer John Varvatos to create a one-of-a-kind 300S that was auctioned off to benefit the Stuart House. Clearly the American automaker was pleased with the results, as the fashion designer has created two more 300C models that will be made available to the public.
Famous fashion designer John Varvatos has teamed up with Chrysler to create a one-of-a-kind 300S that will be auctioned off with proceeds benefiting the Stuart House, an organization that serves and protects childhood sexual abuse victims.
Known for his high fashion menswear, Varvatos reached out to Chrysler to see if they would be interested in sponsoring his annual party in LA that benefits the Stuart House. Without thinking twice, the American automaker offered a 300S for Varvatos to customize and auction off, so the award-winning designer went to work.
This year, Varvatos teamed up with online auction house Charitybuzz.com, where the John Varvatos Stuart House Online Auction is running now until March 20th. Those interested in putting in a bid for the 300S will be getting themselves a very unique vehicle, with plenty of bespoke customizations that resemble Varvatos’ clothing style.
Valued at $40,000, the custom 300S features 20-inch wheels from Mopar in a Satin Carbon finish while, as expected, much of the upgrades are in the lush interior: woven “Black Waffle” leather; flat-woven heather fabric; contrast silver fabric with texture on the seat piping, headrest, and floor mat binding; a black leather-wrapped instrument panel, console lid, and door armrest; satin chrome finishes, and a black two-tone steering wheel with accent 360 ring.
