The Chrysler Crossfire concept car, unveiled by Daimler-Chrysler, is a small, sporty coupe.

This distinctive two-seater has a 2.7-liter, 275 horsepower, V-6 engine, along with nineteen-inch front wheels and huge 21-inch rear wheels. The designers figure the car will do 0 to 60 mph (97 kph) in about 5.8 seconds.

The Crossfire also features some impressive technology; but, unlike the Super8 Hemi, this technology is aimed at highlighting the performance of the car, rather than entertaining the passengers. The car has a data-acquisition system, much like the ones used on Champ Cars, that displays information on acceleration and other performance parameters.
