From the outside, clues that something is different about these two Crossfires are subtle. The wheels are slightly larger and the chin spoiler integrated into the front fascia is hardly noticeable.
The fixed rear spoiler, however, is very prominent and is the only strong indication that something is special about these two cars. The Crossfire SRT6, available in both coupe and roadster form, is powered by a 330-hp supercharged 3.2-liter V6. This amount of power will push the SRT6 from 0 to 60 in about 5 seconds.

On the track, the cars feel deceptively fast. Their German heritage comes through behind the wheel. Both the Roadster and the Coupe are composed and smooth, while providing communicative steering and suspension. The Convertible is slightly softer than the Coupe, with the hard top having sharper responses and a little more edge. The Crossfire SRT6 is a very balanced package overall. Additionally, the SRT6 convertible is the only [Chrysler] convertible [to get the SRT treatment].
There are a couple complaints that just cannot be left alone. First of all, it is the price. You can get more power and utility in the larger SRT8 series at a lower price. Chrysler is playing in a crowded marketplace. Even though the SRT6 looks great and has a respectable amount of power, there are other cars we?d rather spend our cash on. Secondly, these two vehicles beg for a manual transmission. The Chrysler Crossfire SRT6 does not come with a manual transmission, and it would help the driving experience tremendously. I feel like the driving experience is just a simple change away from being incredible. It was impressive and would probably make an awesome street car, but it was missing something on the track.
