The Chrysler 300M front end needed serious revision. As it stood it was crudely executed. This diagram shows an alternative schematic break up of the front wing, headlamp and bumper.
In essence, the graphics asked questions the engineering department could not deal with and the actual solution defeated the graphics. It is tempting to say the graphics were not really feasible.
Here is a concept that assumes that the bumper and wing could be fitted tightly:
The very thick line over the headlamp is the result of the ‘overslam’ requirement. This leads to a large gap between the bonnet and the front bumper to account for the impact of the bonnet on its landing surface. European cars tend to have a smaller overslam requirement or else deal with it more effectively. I still haven’t dealt with the door shutline.
