Chrysler Crossfire

 

CARBARN | Chrysler Crossfire | the car was marketed in 2008, a car that has luxury facilities and also very sporty indeed rare to find, because perhaps some people throughout the whereabouts of the car yet this year, well here we report information about this car. 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.  To achieve an even more dynamic appearance on the Crossfire Roadster, satin silver painted sport bars appear just behind the driver and passenger seats. They ride in two race-inspired fairings integrated into the top of the tonneau cover, which complete the Roadster’s rakish look. A long hood and fast back give the Chrysler Crossfire a dynamic side view. The car’s broad shoulders envelop 19-inch rear wheels, while the front wheels measure 18 inches. The larger rear wheels give the side profile a poised stance. The Chrysler Crossfire sports a distinctive side view character line that moves precisely and rapidly from front to rear. The character line crosses to a negative formation as it travels from the front through the rear fender, giving credence to the name “Crossfire.” A central spine runs from the bottom of the front fascia through the grille, hood and into the rear deck and fascia.


Inside the Crossfire’s twin cockpit interior, this same center spine shape bisects the center console, shifter and instrument panel. From the driver’s seat, the center spine shape appears to continue from the instrument panel through the windshield and onto the hood, inspiring similar design cues in other Chrysler brand vehicles. 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 Coupe, measured dynamically, has a body structure that is twice as stiff as a Porsche Boxster and as stiff as a Porsche 911. This technical achievement allows Crossfire Coupe to demonstrate its sedan-like ride while maintaining true sports car handling characteristics. 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. The Chrysler Crossfire is equipped with a standard Electronic Stability Program (ESP), which is designed to help drivers maintain control during extreme steering maneuvers and low traction conditions. The Crossfire’s ESP senses when the car is starting to spin (oversteer) or plow (understeer) and attempts to correct the vehicle’s course by automatically controlling the throttle and applying the brakes at individual wheels. This provides directional stability in turns, even on uneven surfaces.

All-speed traction control also is standard on all Chrysler Crossfire models. This feature senses drive-wheel slip and individually brakes the slipping wheel and/or reduces excess engine power until control is regained. This enhances the Crossfire’s mobility and prevents wheel slip when accelerating on slippery surfaces. It also provides a measure of directional stability control and helps keep the car on its intended course. The Crossfire Coupe and Roadster’s standard four-wheel, Anti-lock Brake System (ABS) with Brake Assist keep the cars straight and retain steering capability while braking on slippery surfaces by preventing wheel lockup.
