2006 STARTECH Chrysler 300C


(from Press Release)  The Chrysler 300C - regardless of body style, 300C Sedan or Touring model - sets itself apart from the rest with striking design. STARTECH offers an extensive customization program for the top-of the-line Chrysler.

For the Chrysler 300C 3.0 CRD STARTECH offers its SD6 performance tuning that does not impede the function of the standard diesel particulate filter. The STARTECH tuning kit consists of a computer-controlled auxiliary control unit complete with wire harness and installation instructions. It can be installed in less than 30 minutes by any authorized Chrysler dealer.

The new engine mapping increases power output of the 3.0-liter V6 common-rail turbodiesel engine from standard 218 hp / 160 kW to 262 hp / 193 kW at 4,000 rpm. Even more important in everyday driving is the jump in peak torque from standard 510 Nm to 580 Nm, available between a low 1,600 and 2,800 rpm.
These impressive figures are also reflected in the performance of the Chrysler 300C 3.0 CRD. The sprint from rest to 100 km/h is shortened from 7.6 (Touring: 7.9) seconds for the production car to 7.2 (Touring: 7.5) seconds with STARTECH SD6 tuning. Top speed increases to 235 (Touring: 232) km/h.

STARTECH recommends the addition of its stainless-steel sport exhaust system as the perfect complement to the performance tuning. The sport exhaust features the two characteristic oval STARTECH chrome tailpipes and not only produces a more powerful yet unobtrusive exhaust note but also optimizes power yield.

The extensive STARTECH individualization program for the 300C is also available for the new common-rail model. The STARTECH aerodynamic-enhancement kit lends both body styles an even more striking appearance.

The front of the top-of-the-line Chrysler model receives an attractive facelift with the STARTECH chrome grille with matrix design and the STARTECH front spoiler. The spoiler is attached to the production bumper and has more than just cosmetic effects: Its refined shape reduces aerodynamic lift with benefits for directional stability at high speeds. The elegantly shaped STARTECH side sills offer an interesting feature: Upon activation via the keyless-entry remote or by pulling on a door handle four LED-lights on either side illuminate the ground next to the vehicle.

The STARTECH roof spoiler visually extends the roofline of the sedan. The STARTECH rear spoiler lip on the trunk lid reduces lift on the rear axle at high speeds. For optimal integration of the two oval tailpipes of the STARTECH stainless-steel exhaust system the designers created custom-tailored elements for the rear apron.

Another important contribution to the exclusive STARTECH design is made by the 20-inch wheels and by the vehicle’s lowered ride height. The one-piece STARTECH Monostar IV 9Jx20 light-alloy wheels with sporty yet elegant five-spoke design are fitted with tires in size 245/40 ZR 20 in front and in size 275/35 ZR 20 on the rear axle.

The STARTECH sport springs lower the ride height of the 300C 3.0 CRD by some 40 millimeters and are precision-calibrated to the production shock absorbers to combine more agile handling with excellent ride comfort.

Sill plates with illuminated STARTECH logo, high-quality additions to the wood trim, Alcantara door panel elements and armrests, or aluminum shifter, foot pedals and chromed door-lock pins - the refinement of 300C interior plays an important role at STARTECH.

The STARTECH upholstery shop fulfills even more exclusive requests from individual customers. Among the specialties are precision-crafted fully leather interiors made from especially soft and breathable Mastik leather and Alcantara as well as the state-of-the-art STARTECH multimedia package. The in-car entertainment system comprises a custom-tailored roof console with retractable 10.2-inch screen and an integrated DVD player. The sound is transmitted by two wireless infrared headphones.
