Clean carfax and only 8800 miles! 2005 Chrysler Crossfire SRT-6. As the only SRT vehicle to feature a 6-cylinder supercharged engine, the Crossfire SRT-6 was also the only vehicle other than the Dodge Viper SRT-10 to feature a coupe and roadster variant. The car was a unique infusion of German engineering, American design, and American tuning. Based on the Mercedes-Benz R170 platform that underpinned the first-generation Mercedes-Benz SLK, the Crossfire SRT-6 performance story started with a hand-built 3.2-liter supercharged V6 engine that was originally used in the SLK 320 AMG. It was tuned to produce 330 horsepower (246 kW) and 310 lb.-ft of torque in Crossfire SRT-6 form. The 3.2-liter was mated to a 5-speed W5A 580 automatic transmission. The 3.2-liter supercharger was supplied by IHI, the same manufacturer as the SRT Hellcat, SRT Hellcat Redeye superchargers. It featured a water-to-air intercooler that helped deliver a relatively flat torque curve, delivering 90% of the engine’s peak torque between 2,300 to 6,200 RPM. Of course, it used a unique SRT engine cover and a performance-tuned exhaust system. Now while the car was basically an SLK underneath the skin, SRT engineers worked to deliver a stiffer, sportier performance ride with reduced understeer compared with the regular Crossfire and SLK. Both the Chrysler Crossfire SRT-6 Coupe and Roadster models benefited from stiffer spring rates which were tuned differently to optimize their own handling characteristics compared to the regular Chrysler Crossfire models. The design team also integrated performance-themed appointments within the interior of the Crossfire SRT-6. A set of race-inspired seats were designed to provide increased support for those taking their cars to the track. The seats were fitted with Nappa Pearl Leather and featured enhanced grip thanks to Alcantara suede inserts and bolsters and unique SRT-6 badging embroidered onto the headrest. The seats and the steering wheel featured subtle gray stitching which was unique to the SRT-6 models. Of course, there was a 200-mph (320 km/h) instrument cluster added to SRT-6 as well. The Chrysler Crossfire SRT-6 has proven to have a cult following in recent years. While relatively cheap on today’s market, there has been a resurgence of several SRT-6s on social media channels doing various track day and drag strip events over the past few years. While some modified versions being able to tackle the quarter-mile in under 11.5-seconds, the Chrysler Crossfire SRT-6 continues to be one of the most underrated SRT vehicles in the division’s portfolio. This particular cream puff only has 8791 miles with a clean Carfax previously loved by a little ol' lady (no Bull!) who said she used to race cars back in the 60's and wanted something with good handling and performance. Her only regret was it is an automatic, it was the first automatic she had ever owned. Now is the chance for you to have fun!
