Default Very rare color combo 2008 Crossfire. Silver/Red interior


Hello,

Over a year ago I purchased this 2008 Roadster after enjoying a 2004 coupe for years.
I've yet to see any others in this color combo. I've seen plenty in the sapphire blue with red interior, but this is bright silver with red. Though it often tends to look like the blue when it's reflecting the sky.

I love it.

Richard Green

That's a very attractive combo.

I didn't know of any other true silver Crossfires. Cool!

Ah thanks.

Yeah I haven't hardly seen any in this color combo..especially in a roadster. Probably a few and a few coupes out there with it.

BSM w/cedar interior was common on coupes toward the end.

So was Oyster Gold Metallic with the same reddish insides.

Almost went silver and red with a cheap low mileage 04 manual

Then my better half, who learned to drive on a stick in her daddy's pickup, reminded me she lost that ability when she got her PhD So I went for the SRT instead.

I did bookmark the thread on the guy who put a Cedar interior into his SRT (so he could give it to his daughter?)

Check out my signature for a pix of my Roadster.

It sure looks like the same color as the original post (and yes mine has the Cedar interior).

I just assumed mine was an SSB, but mine sure looks Silver to my old tired eyes.

Does the door or an engine label list the original color...???

Thanx...

That one is the Sapphire blue. Mine is true Silver. Two different colors, but the true silver can look like the sapphire blue because of reflecting the sky. My previous Crossfire was a 2004 Coupe that was blue.

The SSB looks silver but I've never seen the silver look SSB. THey had one in the showroom for years at a dealer in St Peter's MO. would not deal at all on it in 2009. But It is no longer there. It did not have theCedar seats or a stick shift so my interest was low.

The silver is a popular MB color and when first viewed the silver Crossie looks more like an MB that our crossies normaly appear. In my view the cedar seats are classic MB 320 and tend to re-enforce that perception.

Itis a great combonation. Especially if you are prone to putting MB badges on the car.

Really a great looking combo on your roadster. It's the first I've seen like this setup. Chris L has an 08 Bright Silver Coupe that is also good looking.

The Bright Silver is almost as good looking as the Machine Gray. ALMOST!!

If not mistaken the color is called "Machine Grey" two new colors were introduced in later models, Machine Grey and Oyster Gold.

I thought machine grey is a blue actually. Same as the Chrysler color Pearl coat Magnesium.

A rare color and beautiful. I have seen only three Two coupes and a roadster,

I've seen the Machine Gray or Grey both ways in various publications. But per the actual window sticker from my car, it is listed as 'Machine Gray'. (see attached) The 2007 Crossfire brochure also shows it spelled 'Machine Gray'. Color was initially offered with 06 model year. Again in 07. Not sure about 08. The Oyster Gold was offered 06-08.

And, yes, when up close Machine Gray has a bluish metallic look. Sorta like a piece of fresh steel - e.g., Machine Gray!

Well, it is really her SRT or she claims it is hers. LOL, The interior was put in a year or two after she had been driving it. I have my own. I amThinking I should put the red steering wheel and red airbag in hers that I have .

Yeah the Machine Grey is really nice. That was one of the colors I was on the lookout for.
Especially with the beige interior.

My 07 Roadster is BSM with Cedar interior. I love the BSM because it's completely monochromatic. Silver strakes/silver windshield frame/silver wheels/silver everything.
