Echoing show cars from the 1950s by Virgil Exner and Ghia of Italy, the classy and modern Chrysler Chronos concept car was a major hit at the 1998 Chicago Auto Show. The styling study wore massive (at the time), 20-inch front and 21-inch rear tires. A 350 horsepower, 6.0 liter V-10 engine purred under the long, low hood, and came mated to a four-speed automatic gearbox. A modified Dodge Viper suspension was used for the Chronos. Built into the handsome Chronos cabin was a cigar humidor, plus, the tortoise shell and California walnut trim inspired the details used in the cabin of the 2005 Chrysler 300 four-door sedan.
