Chrysler Crossfire Coupe (03-08) - rated 2.5 out of 5

Debuting in 2003, the Chrysler Crossfire was the American brand’s first take on a European sports car, although it wasn’t an offering that buyers clambered in significant numbers to own, disappearing without replacement after five years.

Under that dramatic skin, complete with stylised grooves in the bonnet, were the underpinnings and 3.2-litre V6 engine from the first generation Mercedes-Benz SLK roadster – a car that had already been replaced by the time the Chrysler Crossfire Coupe went on sale.

Not only was the Crossfire Teutonic in its make-up, it was also built in Germany by coachwork specialists, Karmann, previously responsible for cars as diverse as the Volkswagen Golf Cabriolet and Nissan Micra C+C.
