Well Chrysler is Mercedes so lately many of their newer cars look like Mercedes cars. The Crossifire is based on the Mercedes SL which influenced the desing of the SLR so your not wrong in noticing the similarity. Attached is a pic of the Chrysler Crossfire.

Also incase anyone would like to read up on the SLR, here is a few links to Edmunds reviews and drive tests on the SLR.

I love everything about that car except the front end. Mainly the part in the center that looks like a big nose extending into the front bumper.

It's an impressive car, but I still can't get used to the front end either. And for that price, I'd rather have an Aston Martin Vanquish and a Ford GT.

It has a complete carbon fiber body too.

Esquire magazine had an article on it, and some lucky journalist actually got to drive that beast.

Where did you find all those pictures coyotefreek? I was looking for one to use as wallpaper on my computer and
could'nt find jack.

I got them all of Edmunds.com, they also have the drive tests I posted the links to before. Edmunds always has great pictures for every car available, only problem is that they arent that big.

the shift knob is schweeet... :bowdown:

but you know what i'd rather have than a SLR? a Viper, then with my money left over - send it to that Lingenwhatchamacallit guy who did the corvette THEN with the money i would still have left over... i'd buy a big house with a massive garage. and yet STILL, with my left over money, i would order a pizza AND tip the delivery guy $50 bucks, just because i would STILL have money left over :biggrin:
