This is the 2013 Chrysler 300C John Varvatos Limited Edition

Article by Christian Andrei, on September 14, 2012

Fashion designer John Varvatos has built two Chrysler 300C models that will be offered to the public. Last March, Varvatos partnered with the automaker to make a unique 300S for an auction that benefited the Stuart House. They had so much success that they have to decided to make two more. The first is a limited-production 300C John Varvatos model that is inspired by a ‘Detroit-tough’ attitude.

The second is the 300C John Varvatos Luxury Edition with its exclusive interior finishes and exterior accents that have a Platinum Chrome finish. Beginning with the Limited Edition model, the 300C will be offered with a one-of-a-kind Phantom Black tri-coat exterior paint job that will be enhanced even further with a Titanium-finished grille surround, Titanium Chrome Chrysler ‘wing’ badge, and Black Chrome grille blades.

The vehicle appears bolder due to slight revisions on its front bumper as well as its bigger air inlets and Black Chrome grille blades and Titanium-finished accents. The sedan is fitted with 20-inch wheels while the LED taillights are blackened.

The Pewter Metallic leather seats carry an embossed John Varvatos’ logo, which feature a distinct Diesel Gray and black pattern Varvatos stitching. It has a specially-designed gauge cluster that seems to have been influenced by the designer’s latest timepiece that has a Pearlescent White face and Charcoal Black Metallic bezels.

We could expect showrooms to have the limited-production model in the first quarter of 2013. Meanwhile, the Luxury Edition is available with an interior of either monotone black or exclusive Dark Mocha with black Poltrana Frau ‘Foligno’ leather. The steering wheel is covered in leather in the matching shade. The interior is enhanced further with the die-cast paddle shifters and unique chrome accent ring. Its appearance becomes even more stunning with its use of hand-sanded Natural Pore Mocha with a matte finish.

Chrysler Brand Launches ‘Unboxing’ Ad for the New Chrysler 300C John Varvatos Limited Edition

The Chrysler brand continues to build upon signature design and Detroit-born style with a new 30-second commercial titled “Unboxing.” The commercial showcases the world-renowned fashion designer and Detroit-native John Varvatos with the new 2013 Chrysler 300C John Varvatos Limited Edition, and also includes a guest cameo made by Detroit-rocker Iggy Pop. The ad “Unboxing” will air on national and cable networks.

“Collaborating with John Varvatos is a true testament to what the Chrysler brand represents, proving that with inspiration, determination and hard work come beautiful things,” said Saad Chehab, President and CEO – Chrysler Brand, Chrysler Group LLC. “This partnership embodies two brands coming together to deliver unique design, exclusive style and classic refinement.”

“I am excited to continue my partnership with Chrysler, and launch the Limited Edition 300C vehicle that I collaborated on with their world-class design team,” said John Varvatos. “It is a very special and personal automobile that has so many great design details and features. Having my friend Iggy Pop join me in my new commercial just made it even sweeter."

The spot opens with a delivery truck making its way through the busy streets of New York carrying the Chrysler 300C John Varvatos Limited Edition. A voiceover begins to tell a story about perfection and luxury, stating “to perfect every detail, work with a perfectionist who sweats every detail. If you want to refine a luxury car you’re proud to put your name on, work with a guy whose name is his reputation.”

As the truck makes its way through the streets, you see Varvatos as he awaits the delivery of the finished car to his Bowery store in New York City. After Varvatos inspects the vehicle for the first time, a special guest cameo is made by one of his Detroit friends and collaborators, Iggy Pop, as they drive off in the vehicle together.

“Unboxing” was created in partnership with Wieden+Kennedy of Portland.

With its unique Phantom Black tri-coat exterior paint and discrete metallic finishes inside and out, the limited-production 2013 Chrysler 300C John Varvatos Limited Edition exudes a Detroit-tough attitude.

Styled after the black with Titanium-finished John Varvatos’ cologne bottle, a Titanium-finished grille surround, Titanium Chrome Chrysler “wing” badge and Black Chrome grille blades mimic the foundries that made Motor City flourish. For a more striking look, an aggressively styled front fascia integrates larger air inlets and features Black Chrome grille blades and Titanium-finished accents. Matching the cologne bottle finish are new 20-inch cast-aluminum wheels, day light opening surrounds and mirror caps finished in Titanium. At the rear, LED taillamps with blackened detail give a more masculine look, while dual-exhaust tips in titanium, and John Varvatos and Chrysler wing deck-lid badges finished in Titanium Chrome complete the look.

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 industrious style that could only be “Imported from Detroit.” Inside, John Varvatos’ logos are proudly debossed on unique Pewter Metallic leather seats and are tailored with unique Diesel Gray and black pattern Varvatos stitching – for a look that is straight out of his fitted-jacket collection. Translated from John Varvatos’ latest watch design are a specially designed gauge cluster and clock with Pearlescent White face and Charcoal Black Metallic bezels. Extensive use of exotic Poltrona Frau® black leather with Diesel Gray accent stitching surrounds the bespoke environment, while a hand-stitched heated steering wheel is finished with Diesel Gray thread and Titanium Chrome accents for added detail. Completing the Chrysler 300C Varvatos Limited Edition’s interior are Titanium, unique Charcoal Hydrographic Wood and Gloss Black finished interior accents.

The limited-production 2013 Chrysler 300C John Varvatos Limited Edition arrives to Chrysler showrooms in the first-quarter of 2013. Only 2,000 vehicles will be built with each of them being serialized.

Launched in 2000 with a collection of tailored clothing and sportswear, John Varvatos now represents an entire men’s lifestyle that includes footwear, bags, belts, eyewear, limited edition watches, men’s fragrances, as well as the younger, edgier John Varvatos U.S.A. Collection and Boys’ line, as well as Converse by John Varvatos.

The collection is distributed in freestanding John Varvatos boutiques across the U.S. — including his famed 315 Bowery boutique in New York City, formerly the seminal underground music club CBGB’s — and online, as well as in better department stores throughout the world.
