Chrysler Australia has announced details of how buyers can get their hands on the production version of the 300 SRT Pacer tribute concept car, revealed last month.
Production of the V8-powered four-door, designed in tribute to the 1969 Chrysler Valiant Pacer, will be limited to 50 examples only.
Interested buyers will need to move fast, and be ready to spend $69,950 on the retro-inspired version of the 300 sedan.
That price represents a modest increase over the $67,000 asked for the current 2019 300 SRT Core model, but with a host of extra features.
These include unique ‘Pacer 392’ badging both inside and out, along with a numbered plaque affixed to the center console and beneath the bonnet. Black and red decals can be found across the car, with ‘Hemi’ and ‘Pacer’ branding included.
More significant are the performance Brembo brakes with red calipers, plus black exterior mirror covers.
An individually numbered photo print, depicting an original Valiant Pacer and 300 SRT Pacer tribute in front of the Chrysler Factory in Adelaide, will also be given to each buyer.
Power comes from a 6.4-litre Hemi V8 engine, sending 350 kW (470 horsepower) to the rear wheels through an eight-speed automatic transmission. This is substantially more than the 130 kW (174 horsepower) found in the original 1969 Valiant Pacer!
Sadly, buyers will not be able to specify the Wild Yellow paintwork found on the Pacer tribute concept. Instead, customers can choose from Bright White, Gloss Black and Ceramic Grey.
Orders can be placed at local Chrysler dealerships now, with cars set to be delivered to customers next year.
Guillaume Drelon, Chrysler Australia Director of Product, noted that this limited edition Chrysler 300 SRT “is truly a modern take on an Australian classic” and that the company is “excited to bring the Pacer back in this exclusive run of fantastic looking vehicles.”
