THE CHRYSLER CROSSFIRE

From Daimler-Benz's point of view there was little gained from owning Chrysler. For Chrysler, on the other hand, access to Mercedes-Benz engineering and even its parts bins, improved many of Chrysler's automobiles which had suffered from a lack of development capital and lagged badly behind even its struggling competitors in the U.S.

One of these bright spots was the Chrysler Crossfire, a sporting coupe and convertible based on the chassis and drivetrain of the first generation M-B SLK. The SLK and Crossfire were positioned to compete with Porsche's Boxster and BMW M Roadster. While the chassis and driveline of the Crossfire were pure SLK, the body and interior design were wholly American projects. Assembly was farmed out to Karmann in Osnabrück, Germany and with interiors and some accessories added in the U.S.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

Chrysler decided to take full advantage of their access to the Daimler-Benz parts bin and create a performance based model, referred to as the SRT-6. At the heart of the SRT-6 was a 3.2-liter helical-supercharged, intercooled, aluminum SOHC V-6 which was used in the Mercedes C32 and SLK32 AMG models. The AMG powertrain was only available with an automatic transmission which included the responsive AutoStick shifter. In addition to the upgraded powertrain, Chrysler upgraded the braking performance, handling prowess, exterior design, aerodynamics, and interior sportiness/comfort to create the ultimate sports tourer.

This superb 2005 Chrysler Crossfire STR-6 Roadster is finished in Sapphire Blue Metallic with a black convertible top. Inside, the car is clad with Dark Slate Gray Nappa leather, trimmed with Alcantara suede inserts, which fully complement of the upgraded SRT-6 Crossfire equipment. The clean Carfax shows only 2 previous owners which helps to explain why this 26,000 mile example is in such great shape.

After testing the newly released model in August of 2004, Car and Driver stated – "Cult-car alert! Twenty years from now, the SRT-6 will be one of those scarce machines that will command a prominent location at concours across the country. Just consider its exotic concept-car-derived styling, its Mercedes-based mechanical bones, and its outstanding acceleration, handling, and braking." With both the summer driving season and this soon to be classics appreciation curve just around the corner, this very rare SRT-6 Crossfire is a very smart buy.
