Choosing Chrysler's second generation 300C rather than a conventional BMW 5 Series, Audi A6 or Mercedes E-Class will be a bold choice to make in the segment for used full-sized executive saloons. But it's one that makes a rather unique statement - and a car that's hard not to like.
You might be looking for a used BMW 5 Series / Mercedes E-Class-sized Executive saloon, but that doesn't mean you have to buy a BMW or a Mercedes. It doesn't mean you have to make a predictably boring choice. Is this the most efficient, the most dynamic or the lowest-depreciating car of that kind you could choose? No. But will you care about that when one is scaring passers-by from your driveway, causing dawdlers to scuttle away from your path in the outside lane or frightening children and small animals when you park outside the dry cleaners? Also no.
True, you need a certain personal chutzpah to be able to carry off a car like this. And probably, given the likely running costs, a certain amount of influence with your company accountant. But given those two things, a used MK2 model 300C would make a very pleasant purchase. Just practical enough to be the car you really need. But also just wild enough, at least in part perhaps, to be the kind of hero car that life and circumstance always denied you a chance to drive, to own and to lust over.
Do it now. Be one of the tiny handful of British buyers in this segment who'll do something different this year with their day-to-day automotive lives. Choosing one of these might not ultimately number amongst your most sensible decisions. But it'll be one of the ones you'll remember most.
