Chrysler 300 Offered With Eight Optional Grilles, Six Wheel Options From Mopar

The first generation Chrysler 300 was famously described by comedian Katt Williams as “…a [Rolls Royce] Phantom…until a Phantom pull up next to you…”, and that ignominious distinction was no doubt fueled by the frequent addition of an aftermarket Bentley-esque egg-crate grille by some owners.

Chrysler’s Mopar division is looking to capitalize on this trend by offering a range of eight grilles, ranging from $310 to $750. The higher end models are two-piece units constructed from billet aluminum, a far cry from the cheap plastic units common on most Bentley-fied Chryslers.

Mopar will also offer six wheel options, ranging from 18 to 20 inches in diameter, with a price range from $265 to $610 per wheel. While most of the choices will be finished in such “urban” styles as chrome, gloss black and “satin carbon”, two “Rallye” style wheel options will be offered, which we can assume mimic the classic 5-spoke mag wheels offered on some Dodge Challengers.

    What a nice way to trick out your Chrysler 300 with parts from the Chrysler dealership. It's a smart thing Chrysler did here with offering these since the Chrysler 300 is one of the ultimate luxury sedan's to be tricked out with wheels, grills and related car mods.
