Chrysler has unveiled its latest new products at the Detroit Motor Show – together with four striking concept cars and the announcement that Dodge will be launching in Europe.

For the UK market, Chrysler took the tops off two vehicles that are due to arrive during 2004 - the new PT Cruiser Convertible and the new Chrysler Crossfire Roadster.

2005 Chrysler Crossfire Roadster

The new 2005 Chrysler Crossfire Roadster features a powered convertible fabric top and full power hard tonneau cover. Under the bonnet is a 3.2-litre 90-degree V-6, 18-valve SOHC engine available with a six-speed manual or a five-speed automatic transmission.

The Roadster shares the Coupe’s stunning rear view with a tapered, 'boat tail' appearance that emphasises the sports car’s mammoth rear wheels plus a retractable spoiler that activates when the car reaches 62 miles per hour.

To achieve an even more dynamic appearance, the Roadster features satin silver painted sport bars that appear just behind the driver and passenger seats. Two race-inspired fairings integrated into the top of the tonneau cover complete the dynamic appearance of the sports car.

Pricing, specification and timescales for the arrival of the right hand drive Crossfire Roadster in the UK have yet to be confirmed.
