Chrysler Crossfire

Chrysler Crossfire

Whoa! This is a response usually reserved for comments made about a good looking member of the opposite sex!

But on rare occasions, it is used for a car that has the X-factor that can turn heads at the drop of a hat. Enter the Chrysler Crossfire. This is such a great looking vehicle. Everything about it is balanced; everything about it is powerful and captures high velocity in car design. The Chrysler Crossfire also has the little details that draw the eye. Take, for instance, the three lines chiselled into the bodywork behind the front wheel arches, the striped indentations on the long sweeping bonnet, the twin exhausts set in middle at the rear, the satin silver door handles and the sexily spoked mags. The palette range for the Chrysler Crossfire’s body is smart and select, with Inferno Red being the most eye-catching. The list of beautiful details just goes on.

There are two versions in the Chrysler Crossfire line-up. There is the hard top version and the cabriolet. The cabriolet would be my pick because open top motoring in a car like this is sheer pleasure. To match the hot looks of either version of the Chrysler Crossfire, a 6 cylinder 3.2 litre V6 motor is at the heart of the beast. A six speed manual or automatic transmission is available, depending on which you find to be the more fun. The transmission is a smooth one that is able to run the Chrysler Crossfire up to 62 mph in a zesty 6.5 seconds. The motor gives good acceleration right throughout the range. The torque is a massive 310 Nm at 3000 rpm and the maximum power output is 160 kW at 5700 rpm. Put all this into the right foot and the Chrysler Crossfire is very capable of running on to a top speed of 155 mph. The Chrysler Crossfire SRT6 is more powerful still. With 246 kW and a 0-100 km/h of just over five seconds you are flung back into your seat as the throttle is squeezed. This is one enjoyable ride!

Slide onto these leather-trimmed seats and one soon becomes aware of the fabulous comfort levels. A beautiful clear CD sound system blasts out superb quality tracks – even with the hood down in the cabriolet version of the Chrysler Crossfire. There is comfortable seating for two, and sharing the pleasure of a journey in the Chrysler Crossfire is definitely worth it – especially if your passenger is the attractive member of the opposite sex mentioned above.

The Chrysler Crossfire is great fun to drive – whether it’s on a long motorway journey or pushing the taut suspension through tight corners. The Chrysler Crossfire offers loads of attainable grip during cornering manoeuvres and covers distances quickly. The ABS brakes with emergency brake assist and traction control are tenacious and can bring high velocities down to a halt in a lightning quick response.

The safety features in the Chrysler Crossfire are exemplary, with driver and passenger side airbags, driver/front passenger airbags and occupant protection system and side impact protection beams all coming as standard.

The Chrysler Crossfire is a car to be seen in. There is no escaping the admiring onlookers’ gazes in this one. The attention to detail is second to none and the Chrysler Crossfire is a car that pleases.
