There is no ignoring that the Chrysler Crossfire 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. 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 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 Crossfire was discontinued at the end of 2007 as part of Chrysler’s cost savings.
