Possibly the best and most affordable Mercedes is a Chrysler? This 2004 Chrysler Crossfire combines unique looks with German engineering to create one of the most interesting coupes around.
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. It's this kind of potential that has kept this coupe in such great condition. It's a dozen years later and the original Alabaster paint still looks fantastic. The Crossfire's design was ahead of its time, and all you have to do is look at the tapered rear end of the new Jaguar coupes as proof. But beneath the skin, this one also has the quality that comes from a German-built coupe that sits on a Mercedes-Benz platform. It's a level of quality that you'll recognize every time those doors shut with a reassuring vault-like "thunk."
The interior of this Chrysler is exactly how you'd want your Mercedes to look. From the handsome two-tone 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, heated seats, a powerful AM/FM/CD stereo system, and automatic climate control. It is truly an enthusiast's luxury sports coupe right down to the stick shift boldly protruding from the center console.
The original 3.2-liter 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 CLK roadster, which means you get a rock-solid platform, bulletproof reliability, and surprising performance. You are in complete control with the six-speed manual transmission, and combined with the German-engineered suspension, you'll constantly be searching for the backroads. Add in great anytime driving features like power steering, four-wheel disc brakes, and grippy BG Goodrich gForce tires on those large 18/19-inch factory alloy wheels, and this is a recipe for your new favorite car.
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 today!!!
