It's a pity the hood is not closed properly.


Details from a 2001 pamphlet.

Don't feel bad Pat, Sandman50 and I were there, but the group waited until we walked over to check out the Black AMX on the other side of the room, then they bunched together for the photo.

I love that concept car so so much... I'd go as far as to say that from the side and backside; it's one of the best looking cars I've ever seen and although the production Xfire isn't as bold; it's at least close...

Great pictures, thanks for sharing them!


Surprising how worn the seat bolster is on the driver's seat:

Well I've finally had time to load my pics from the museum and Woodward 2010. Take a look; some pictures of some great cars. A great collection, including our concept car.

Great photos! Brings back memories. My favorite concept car that I worked on. I not surprised the seat has not been repaired as I am not sure Chrysler has the funds . A small correction to a post earlier, the car debuted at the 2001 Detroit show so it is not quite ten years old yet. Ten years ago it was still a clay model

WOW! I first saw that car at the Los Angeles car show when it first came out! I knew I had to have one, but it wasn't available (the crossfire wasn't on the market yet), and the lease on the car I had was coming to an end. I leased a Chrysler300 (5 year lease), and the next year, the Crossfire hit the streets. I wanted one SO BAD, and when the lease was up on my 300, I started looking for a Crossfire. I test drove the standard tran, and loved it, but wasn't sure I wanted to be bothered with a stick shift in L.A. traffic, and the car at the dealership wasn't quite the color I wanted. I had decided I wanted a Saffire silver blue, (same color as the concept car) with the convertible top (didn't know the proper name at the time), automatic tran, and upgraded sound system with nav. I searched everywhere, and could not find one new in my area. So one day, I did a search on the web, and there it was!!!!!! Exactly what I wanted. Used with 11,000 miles on it, one year old 2005. Only problem was, it was located a further than I wanted to drive. I called the dealer, and he told me that he had just gotten it in from a lease return. While I was on the phone with the dealer, my brother was busy researching crash and repair info on the car. It was as clean as it looked in the pictures, and the dealer was eager to sell. By that afternoon, I had the car in front of my house, (the dealer brought it to me!), and the rest is history. I was the proud owner of a Saffire Silver Blue Crossfire Limited Roadster! To this day, absolutely love this car!

Judging by the wear on the front rotors this car gets driven?? I would assume this car would get trailered and pushed into venues.

As much as I love the production Crossfire, I still like the concept better. We know that concepts never make it to production intact, and I have always wondered how designers feel when their designs get homogenized for the mass public. Has anyone ever asked Erik this question? I would be curious what his thoughts were on this.

Also, what are those 3 red things on the passenger side below the dash?

It is a trio-gauge cluster. I guess the dash gauges were not hooked up?
