Chrysler Crossfire Roadster (2003-2007)

There is no ignoring that the Chrysler Crossfire Roadster was designed to be an American car but in fact it was built in Germany and underneath the skin is the capable chassis of the 1996 Mercedes SLK, a Mercedes engine and many other Mercedes components. The styling is pure americana though and this continues to the interior. Buildquality is generally very good however some of the interior plastics feel a bit low-rent. The compact V6 engine is fast, smooth and tuneful which gives this roadster some extra character.

It’s an admirable car but doesn’t really shine among the likes of The Porsche Boxster and BMW Z4. Perfect if you are looking to break the mould with something a little unusual. The Crossfire was discontinued at the end of 2007 as part of Chrysler’s cost savings.

Chrysler Crossfire SRT-6 Roadster

The Chrysler Crossfire SRT-6 featured a supercharger along with the 3.2 litre V6 which pushed performance but only lasted a year before being phased out so is quite a rarity. The uprated engine makes it a genuinley quick car and somepowerful brakes mean those horses can be easily tamed.
