    Video: FB Tuning debuts 400-hp carbon-bodied Chrysler Crossfire in Monaco
    1398891480

    The Chrysler Crossfire was, suffice it to say, a matter of taste. Based on old Mercedes-Benz mechanicals, it included retro styling accents and an armadillo roofline. Some loved it, but there was clearly room for improvement – not to mention more sales – and that's just what Italian ...
