Chrysler says its new 2012 300C Executive Series is poised to be "the most luxurious Chrysler flagship sedan ever." That's a pretty tall order, but one quick glance at the Executive Series' spec sheet makes us think that The Pentastar may have hit the nail right on the head.

What makes the 300C Executive Series so swanky, you ask? For starters, the normal seats have been wrapped in two-tone Nappa leather, the front passengers are greeted by a hand-stitched Italian leather dash and there are hand-sanded real wood accents all throughout the cabin. But it doesn't stop there. The instrument panel, center console, side panels and upper door panels can be wrapped in a choice of either Mochachino or Black Poltrona Frau "Foligno" leather. Those Nappa leather seats feature 12-way power adjustment up front, and of course, there's a host of Chrysler's latest infotainment technology housed in its Uconnect Touch system.

The Executive changes aren't just limited to the interior, though. Outside, the chrome fascia, mirror and door handle accents have been replaced with a platinum finish, and new 20-inch wheels give the whole package an impressive stance. Under the hood is the 300C's 5.7-liter Hemi V8, churning out 363 horsepower in this application.

So, is this the most luxurious Chrysler flagship ever? Judge for yourself in our high-res image galleries below.
