Default Chrysler Crossfire SRT-6?!

Quote:
The Crossfire SRT-6 will pump 330 horsepower and go zero to 60 mph in just over five seconds. In a video Chrysler showed, the Crossfire SRT-6 bested the Porsche Boxster. The two-seat convertible Roadster edition will follow.

Whoa! I know it said it bested the Porsche... but don't know in what. Straight line probably.

But what's it like in the twistys?

Doesnt the Crossfire use the MB's 3.2L V6 in the C320?

so SRT-6 will use the supercharged version of the MB 3.2L (the one n the C32 AMG)? If so, they should get more than 300hp out of that right?

i am pretty sure you are right. the crossfire has the SLK rear suspension too, and the drive is serious tight.

I've a co-worker with this car. It's beautiful, with really aggressive styling. turned my head, anyway.

$35K though, and 3.2L in it pumps about 215 BHP. If they get the SRT6 into it, it'll be a screamer.

I am not at all impressed by the crossfire. They say its looks are its strong point, but I think it is horribly ugly. It isn't all the great for the price, so I am sure the SRT-6 will be subpar as well.

yea since when did the boxster become the benchmark for all modern sports cars? the boxster is overpriced and underpowered. now if the srt-6 could f with a gt3 then they'd have something to write home about.

The crossfire is also tiny inside and because of the way the roof is designed if you're taller than a midget you'll crack your head when you get out.

Ive driven a non S boxter, completely unimpressed. I thought my 2.5rs was a hell of a lot more fun.

Bested the Porsche in what? 0-60? woopidy dooooo!! Boxters aren't drag cars.

I've driven the S and standard boxter and they deffinately aren't posuer porsches. Handling doesn't get much better in a stock car. They are some of my favorite cars i have driven. They are way overpriced though.
