The Chyrsler Crossfire was first on showroom floors for the 2004 model year, although it had been displayed at auto shows starting in 2001 as a concept car. It was available as a two door coupe or a convertible. Chrysler was attempting to build a luxury sports car without the high price of it’s competitors. Despite it’s appeal in it’s early days, as more powerful models were introduced by other manufacturers, the Crossfire started to lose it’s initial appeal. As sales decreased Chrysler started selling the cars online at Overstock.com. Even the discounted online prices did’t produce enough sales and production was halted with the 2008 model year.
This 2005 convertible belongs to a Clavey Auto customer. It is equipped with a 215 HP, 3.2 liter V-6 engine. There is a retractable spoiler at the rear of the deck lid that activates when the car reaches 60 mph.
It has 19 inch rear wheels and 18 inch wheels in the front creating a poised stance when veiwing the car from the side. The interior boasts high backed bucket seats and the twin cockpit layout complements the exterior.
Despite the Crossfire’s poor sales numbers, several movies and television shows have featured the car. It was shown in the movies “Crash” and “The Fast and the Furious:Tokyo Drift” as well as MTV’s “Laguna Beach”. Even this extra exposure didn’t help the car’s sales and it was dis-contnued in 2008.
