2007 Chrysler Nassau Concept

[cars name="Chrysler"] is finally taking the hint. The big, in-your-face, American-in-a-German-way 300C was the biggest hit the brand has had in years. Why not use the same formula again? Start with a luxurious German sedan, cut a few costs here and there, add a dash of American badassness, let it simmer, and you have a heavy helping of success. This time, Chrysler has started with the sleek Mercedes-Benz CLS four-door coupe, and the result is the Nassau you see here.

Although the Nassau has the same wheelbase as the 300C, it stands out in a couple ways. Chrysler has given it full-length glass roof panels and a hatchback. It foregoes B-pillars, just like its big brother, the Mercedes-Benz CLS. The Nassau also sports LED lighting, twenty-one inch wheels, and a 6.1-liter Hemi V-8. Chrysler design boss Trevor Creed says that the Nassau was intended “to show we can really do elegant-looking vehicles.” We think the boattail look works better with Bugattis or a Buick Riviera then it does here.
