Chrysler’s 300C sedan enhanced by American fashion designer John Varvatos is back for the 2014 model year, and is available for the first time with all-wheel drive. The first 300C John Varvatos Limited Edition was launched for 2013 and proved such a hit that Chrysler is offering it once again.

You’ll recognize it by its custom Phantom Black tipple-coat exterior paint and discrete metallic finishes inside and out. The grille sports a titanium finish and black chrome accents are used for the air intake surrounds in the front bumper.

At the rear, LED lights with blackened detail give a sinister look, while dual-exhaust tips in titanium, and John Varvatos badges complete the look. The wheels are 20-inch cast-aluminum pieces (19-inch for all-wheel-drive models).

Delivering John Varvatos’ signature style through a unique combination of dark colors and exotic materials, the Chrysler 300C John Varvatos Limited Edition surrounds its passengers with craftsmanship and an industrial feel that’s meant to evoke Chrysler’s ‘Imported From Detroit’ mantra.

Key details include a pewter-color for the Poltrona Frau leather trim, contrast stitching, and a specially designed gauge cluster and clock with a white face and charcoal bezels. Completing the Chrysler 300C Varvatos Limited Edition’s interior are titanium, wood and piano black accents.

As the car is based on the Chrysler 300C, buyers can choose from either the 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6, good for 292 horsepower, or the 5.7-liter HEMI V-8, which only offers up 363 horsepower but comes with fuel-saving cylinder deactivation. Both come with an eight-speed automatic, and both are available with all-wheel drive.

Pricing for the 2014 Chrysler 300C John Varvatos Limited Edition starts at $45,475, including $995 in destination charges, and the first examples should be in showrooms by March. Opting for all-wheel drive will raise the starting price by $2,500.
