Daimler-Benz’s mixed DNA and the Chrysler Corporation produced their first offspring in 2003, and hairdressers cheered. The Crossfire is just the kind of ready-to-wear floral that appeals to people in the fine art world. Crossfire definitely looks good.
The car’s name is also an unintended pun on DaimlerChrysler; Since their 1998 merger, executives have been regularly bombarded by the crossfire between Stuttgart and Detroit. The latest forced exit was Chrysler Group Chief Operating Officer Wolfgang Bernhard, who was launched in May to talk a lot about Mercedes’s woes and his resistance to a $ 7 billion spending plan to bail out Mitsubishi.
He probably thought the money should be used to attract more people to buy Crossfires. As of May 1, according to Commercial News, there was enough torpedo-tail coupe in stock for the Karmann plant in Osnabrück, Germany, to take a five-month lunch break before short-lived Chrysler dealerships entered. The company believes the magic laxative can lower the base price to less than $ 30,000 for 2005 by removing some standard features such as hot seats.
Meanwhile, the stylishly clothed Crossfire, which shares the skeleton and muscle of the first generation Mercedes-Benz SLK Roadster, is the first Chrysler product to win the performance-enhancing SRT mark, awarded to date. Just in shuffle.
