AutoWeek is a fan of the open-top SRT-6ified Crossfire in every respect except one: no freaking stickshift. Which is really too bad, since the car has almost everything else working in its favor: a supercharged 330-hp V6 that whisks the Art Deco-ish chariot to 60 mph in five seconds, very competent brakes, and handling that exceeds the coupe's on account of how it can manage crisp maneuvering without sparing a comfort. The entry fee is also kind of unfortunate, as a $49,120 hit will get you pretty close to a car better in all sporting respects— the C6 Corvette, which does indeed allow you to row your own.
