Spotted - Chrysler Crossfire

Well, the title says it all, last night on the way through Warrandyte Vic I spied with my little eye a black Crossfire. Are they actually on sale yet?

PS, before anyone gets in no I didn't get a picture.

Re: Spotted - Chrysler Crossfire

Yep have seen them at dealers already. Apparently they are a pretty shoddy thing - Top Gear gave them an absolute pasting in their most recent show and that's good enough for me!

Re: Spotted - Chrysler Crossfire

Yes, I saw one a little over a week ago. Must say that, in this case, they look a hell of a lot better in the PICTURES than they do in real life.

I was underwhelmed!

Haven't you noticed? British car magazines hate ANYTHING that is not European or British! Check out all the other American and non Euro cars reviewed.
Wouldnt suprise me if they prefer the Calibra to the Monaro

Re: Spotted - Chrysler Crossfire

Haven't seen one yet, but will definately be looking out for it. The price seems to be a bit steep...and on the base of that article...it doesn't seem as though it should be anywhere near that high. Why is it that Chrysler think that their cars should be sold at a high price...when I think prestige, I dont think of them.

Price is a bit steep, but hell I LOVE THE LOOK OF IT!

Given that the car is essentially a Mercedes SLK with a different body on it it could be considered quiet cheap given they start around $100K.

Re: Spotted - Chrysler Crossfire

$70,000 at your local dealer. A bit steep for a 160kw V6 'sports car'. What were they thinking.
