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 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. 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 getaway's luggage.
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!
