    Chrysler ups Crossfire performance with supercharged SRT-6

    MOVE OVER SRT-4 AND Ram SRT-10.

    Those hot Dodge models from Chrysler’s Performance Vehicle Operations shop are about to be joined in the showroom by PVO’s first stab at a souped-up Chrysler: the 2005 Crossfire SRT-6.

    Due in September 2004, the Crossfire SRT-6 follows the May 2004 introduction of the sharply styled Crossfire Roadster convertible. SRT-6 is powered by a supercharged version of the car’s current 3.2-liter V6 engine. Output jumps from the 215 hp provided by the naturally aspirated 3.2-liter engine to 330 hp. The same supercharged engine makes 349 hp in the SLK32 AMG.

    Chrysler’s chief operating officer Wolfgang Bernhard promised 0-to-60-mph times under five seconds for the supercharged Crossfire. The hotter Crossfire gets special wheels and badging and a fixed rear spoiler replacing the motorized pop-up job on the current model. Chrysler will make the SRT-6 engine available on the coming Crossfire Roadster, along with all-weather Z-rated high-performance tires.

    3084 lbs. + 330HP + six speeds + super car brakes & handlobraesing = one potent little Chrysler.
