New Chrysler Crossfire Review
The Chrysler Crossfire is a combination of a British designer, American styling and German technology and all in all this combination works extremely well. Andrew Dyson originally came up with the concept of the Chrysler Crossfire in 2001 and two years later the first Crossfire's were rolling off the assembly line. The distinctive styling gives the American feel to the Chrysler Crossfire but don't be fooled, built as part of the DaimlerChrysler partnership the Crossfire uses the platform and many of the mechanics of the first generation Mercedes SLK, in reality with just under 40% Mercedes content and the fact that it is built in Germany by Karmann the Chrysler Crossfire's roots may well be classed as European.
A 3.2 litre V6 Mercedes-Benz engine that produces either 215 or 330 bhp depending on specification provides power in the Chrysler Crossfire and because the platform is from the SLK you can be assured of a comfortable ride. Power is applied via either a six speed manual box or a five speed automatic.
Available in a choice of either Coupe or Roadster all Chrysler Crossfire models have a top speed of 155 mph and can go from 0 - 62 mph in 6.5 seconds, but if you need that little bit more go, opt for the Chrysler Crossfire SRT models, they have similar top speeds but the timing on the 0 Â? 62 mph is clipped to a highly respectable 5.3 seconds.
Like the looks of the Chrysler Crossfire, why not check out the Mazda MX5, the BMW Z4, the Mazda RX8, the Audi TT or the Nissan 350 Z.
