(autoinsidenews) - the Chrysler Group unveiled its Nassau shooting brake concept at the North American International Auto Show. The Nassau concept explores a new expression of the Chrysler brand and hints at the brand's future styling direction, reports Trend.
Traditional exterior proportions have been enhanced with a silhouette that recalls the classic English shooting brake,' said Alan Barrington, principal exterior designer of the concept. This provides SUV-like interior volume with a lower, more roadworthy physique.
The Nassau is based on the LX platform and powered by the 425-hp 6.1L HEMI out of the SRT8. The Nassau has short front and rear overhangs and appears more visually compact than a comparable Chrysler 300C. The upper portion of the rear hatch is steeply raked, and the back light sweeps to the C-pillars. The grille is a new take on the traditional eggcrate Chrysler grille, and is bracketed by long, narrowing headlamps.
The interior of the Chrysler Nassau is specially designed for a younger audience with its cell phone-like appearance. The instrument panel is inspired by the look of expensive watches. The overall interior theme is of a flowing seamless sculpture composed of leathers and fabrics.
