Show up at a wedding these days and it is highly likely that you’ll see a Chrysler 300C parked outside the church doors with a bouquet strapped to its massive radiator grille. The vehicle seems to be a popular choice for couples who are about to tie the knot. But all good things must come to an end, and that time has come for the large American sedan.

The last 300C has just rolled off the production line in Canada, and it did so in spectacular fashion. Limited to just 2,200 units, these final-edition vehicles have been fitted with a rather potent 6.4-liter Hemi V8. The 485hp engine is kept in check with Brembo brakes, a limited-slip differential, and adaptive dampers. The cars are also decked out in black chrome exterior accents and a special 300C emblem.

While the 300C is no more, Chrysler will continue to fulfill remaining orders for lesser variants until the last day of this year. This date will effectively kill off the 300 series in the automaker’s lineup, which is in line with its plans of moving to a fully electrified product portfolio.

The Chrysler 300 was introduced in 1955. Its latest iteration debuted in 2011 and is loosely related to the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, a result of the American brand’s former partnership with Daimler. The model also had rebadged derivatives in the Dodge Magnum wagon and the Lancia Thema for select European markets.
