The Chrysler 300C SRT-8 is a high performance variation of the Chrysler 300C.
The 300C SRT-8 came onto the automobile market in 2004. The SRT-8 received a small rear spoiler integrated onto its body in 2007. The second generation 300C SRT-8 with a 6.4L HEMI V8 went into production in 2011.
The 300C is an averagely performing vehicle. Its handling suffers from severe understeer in corners due to its large size and mass. This trait makes it less controllable than the 1967 Chevrolet Camaro SS.
The car is best used in pursuits to take advantage of its durability. The 300C is recommendable for race events without many sharp corners since it has a moderate top speed and quick acceleration with performance upgrades but still lacks behind to most cars in handling.
In the career mode, the 300C is commonly used by minor crews such as Inferno and can sometimes be seen being driven by 21st Street Crew members. Neville will drive a 300C if the player chooses the Chevrolet Camaro as their starting car class in the career mode.
In terms of performance, the Red Juggernaut is a decent car. It has a good acceleration speed. Nitrous boost is above average but not as powerful as seen on some SpeedBoost exclusive Class B cars. The 300C is prone to oversteer at low-speed cornering and oddly has heavy steering whilst turning at high speeds. Top speed is 176 mph (283 km/h).
It might be less effective in multiplayer races due to its handling characteristics. The 300C performs well in pursuits events well because of its mass.
The addition of pursuit skill mods make the Juggernauts are more suitable for Pursuit Outrun and Team Escape than racing, since they are easily outmatched by Class B cars with better handling such as the Ford Escort RS Cosworth. They both have an increased top speed of 185 mph (298 km/h).
A silver 300C prominently appears during a flashback at the beginning of Need for Speed: Carbon. It reverses to reveal an alleyway that the player uses to escape but quickly blocks the route again after they pass it.
The door handle geometry of the 300C in Need for Speed: World can be seen floating.
