Chrysler Crossfire Pictures
The 2008 Chrysler Crossfire Coupe and Roadster continue as sleek, modern offerings in the sports car segment, distinguishing themselves from the competition.
Updated safety equipment for 2008 includes a standard, updated Tire Pressure Monitoring (TPM) system that makes it easy for customers to maintain correct tire pressure.
Low-slung with a sculpted appearance, the Chrysler Crossfire features distinctive lines and dynamic proportions. The Crossfire’s rear view is instantly recognizable with a tapered, “boat tail” appearance that emphasizes the sports car’s 19-inch rear wheels. Both Coupe and Roadster versions feature a retractable spoiler designed into the rear of the vehicle that activates when the car reaches 60 mph. The center high-mounted stop lamp (CHMSL) runs the width of the deployable rear spoiler on the Roadster.
The Crossfire Limited’s seats are trimmed in leather with Chrysler’s signature winged badge embossed into both head restraints. The ignition switch is located on the instrument panel, as opposed to the steering column, while the car’s precise, white-on-black gauges feature black bezels and satin silver trim rings. The center console has a metallic finish that flows from the top of the instrument panel through the center of the car to achieve a twin cockpit look. Satin silver accents are featured throughout the interior, including the doors, steering wheel and instrument cluster.
The 2008 Chrysler Crossfire Roadster was developed in parallel with the Coupe from its inception, which enhanced the Roadster’s structural rigidity. Chrysler Crossfire Roadster customers enjoy a tight, solid and quiet ride thanks to the car’s exceptional body torsional stiffness of 29.2 Hz. Chrysler Crossfire Roadster offers more torque (229 lb.-ft.) than Porsche Boxster (192 lb.-ft.) and BMW Z4 (214 lb.-ft.).
Under the hood, a 3.2-liter, 90-degree, 18-valve, single-overhead-cam V-6 engine delivers 215 horsepower (160 kW) and 229 lb.-ft. (310 N•m) of torque at 3,000 rpm to both Coupe and Roadster drivers.
