Possibly the best and most affordable Mercedes is a Chrysler? This
2005 Chrysler Crossfire combines unique looks with German
engineering to create one of the most interesting coupes
German engineered, German built, but American style...The Crossfire
is an interesting vehicle that we will likely not get to see again.
That makes it a shoo-in for classic status. The Crossfire's design
was ahead of its time, and all you have to do is look at the
tapered rear end of the current Jaguar F-Types as proof. And the
center-exit exhaust reminds us of a Porsche. The European
connection is not just with the design. Beneath the skin, this one
also has the quality that comes from a German-built coupe that sits
on a Mercedes-Benz platform. The white paint has a timeless look of
elegance, and the deeply tinted windows make a nice contrast. The
overall exterior condition of this coupe will remind you of a daily
driver. And that's fine because it's a young classic with a ton
more practical years ahead of it. The difference now is that you
get to enjoy the practical years, and whenever you decide it's time
to have a more show-ready Crossfire, today's value price allows you
to leave room in your budget/savings for the improvements you want
to make someday in the future.
The interior shows a lot of care and respect that makes this quite
a nice place to spend some time. In fact, the layout and materials
of this Chrysler are exactly how you'd want your Mercedes to look.
From the handsome black leather bucket seats, to the grippy
steering wheel, to the swatches of shiny silver trim that looks
like raw aluminum - it all has a very European feeling. Plus, with
a long list of standard features, it has a Mercedes-level of
luxury, too. This includes power windows, power locks, power seats,
keyless entry, cruise control, dual front airbags, side airbags, a
powerful AM/FM/CD stereo system, and cold-blowing air conditioning.
And within that big hatch is plenty of cargo space for a weekend
The 3.2-liter fuel-injected V6 under the hood was also a
Mercedes-Benz transplant and delivers smooth performance befitting
a car of this stature. In fact, all the mechanical bits are lifted
almost directly from the excellent Mercedes-Benz SLK roadster,
which means you get a rock-solid platform, superior engineering,
and terrific performance. There is a lot of versatility in the full
package. You have a five-speed automatic transmission that is quick
with kick-downs into power or just smoothly delivers overdrive
cruising. The German-engineered fully-independent suspension works
in harmony with the power steering and four-wheel power disc brakes
w/ABS for a feeling that's both comfortable and sharp.
Complete with owner's manual, the everyday affordable price tells
you the classic car market hasn't caught up to the Crossfire yet,
so don't let this be a missed opportunity. Call now!
