Chrysler Crossfire SRT6 Roadster
The Chrysler Crossfire is a rear-wheel drive sports car that is sold by DaimlerChrysler's Chrysler marque and replaced the Plymouth/Chrysler Prowler. It is produced by Karmann in Germany and shares most of its components, including interior, drivetrain, and chassis, with the Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class (R170). It comes in two styles - coupe and roadster. The "Crossfire" name is derived from the two character lines that run from front to rear on the car's sides. This design creates an upward facing surface at the rear fender, but then crosses in the middle of the car's door to eventually meet the front fender in a downward facing surface - a reference to the alliance of Chrysler and Daimler-Benz.
Features of the Crossfire include a 6-speed manual or optional 5-speed automatic transmission. The 3.2 L, 18-valve, SOHC V6 engine produces 215 hp and 229 ft·lbf of torque in base models. Also, in 2005 Chrysler launched a Crossfire convertible and the SRT-6, a high-performance model powered by a supercharged engine providing 330 hp and 310 ft·lbf torque.
Sales of the Crossfire have been slow, with an average 230-day supply as of November 2005. Despite this, the Crossfire has outsold its predecessor - the Plymouth/Chrysler Prowler. To clear out inventories, Chrysler listed their car on Overstock.com in December 2005. Few Crossfires were imported to the US and Mexico in 2006, and the SLK platform underwent a Vision-SLR redesign that same year. However, the Crossfire remains the only car using the older SLK chassis. The car is expected to fully return to the US and Mexican markets in 2007.
