This supercar, according to developers, will serve as a proving ground on which people have various innovative technical and technological solutions. Novelty can boast a unique rigid body, which is used when creating new composite materials, aerodynamics and delicious, so even at extreme speeds ME 4-12 retains ideal handling and stability.
Derivation of the future car market - the question of solutions, the only question is skillfully positioning the machine. In addition, it is necessary to take into account the interests of the German partner with its supercar SLR
From zero to one hundred kilometers per hour and 4.12 faster for 2,9 sec., A distance of 402 meters car passes for 10.6 seconds. Speed new items a little less 400 kilometers per hour. As the gear used 7-speed Ricardo double-clutch (in the style of DSG) and sequential shift, which spends on switching from one transmission to another of about 0.2 sec.
Unlike traditional "exhibition" of show cars, 4-12 from the company Chrysler is, according to experts, most likely pre-production prototype, not the usual "toy" for the entertainment of visitors to showrooms. Despite the fact that the prototype full swing wound miles of test ranges in the next year or two cars at the base 4.12 on sale, we do not see. The most probable time of its appearance - 2007.

Dimensions Salon 300C allowed Chrysler designers to create a spacious and luxurious interior with lots of amenities. With a wheelbase 3048 mm component, 300C has a maximum length of in-class space to accommodate the feet of the rear passengers (maximum value - 1020 mm) maximum length of the space to accommodate the feet of the front passengers - 1061 mm. Ease of access to the cabin is provided by large doorways (doors open at an angle 72 degrees).
300C outperforms its competitors and the height that allows you to locate the driver's seat above on the road surface, improving visibility. Distance from seat cushions to the ceiling is as follows: front - 975 mm, rear - 959 mm. The driver of any size would be able to easily find the best position of his chair, which has eight different adjustments to the servo. The steering column is also equipped with a servo-controlled adjustments for length and angle. Pedals (accelerator pedal and brake pedal) can also be adjusted with a servo, but this option is set to order. In this case, the range of longitudinal adjustment of the pedals is 76 mm. Built-in memory lets you save settings for two different drivers.
Both front seats have manual lumbar stop. The range of longitudinal adjustment of the driver seat is 270 mm - a 50 mm more than the previous model Chrysler. Rear seats 300C equipped with three headrests and a folding center armrest. The rear seat is on 60/40. It can also be folded completely forward, thus freeing up additional space for cargo.
The luxurious interior with a rich set of additional equipment As befits sedan premium ", 300C has a rich base set. Developers car paid much attention to reducing noise and vibration, including aerodynamic noise due to the motion of the car. The result is a luxurious car that meets the most exacting tastes.
Devices of the front panel dials are colored plaster with black lettering and black as arrows. Highlighting scales performed fluorescent light on a contour dials. After headlamps devices glow green and blue light. The front panel includes: speedometer, tachometer, fuel level indicator and coolant temperature and the central display driver information system (EVIC). Driver Information System is an interactive system, the central display can operate in seven different modes. Scroll keys and function keys of the system are located on the upper spokes of the steering wheel. There also are key audio controls.
The center console lid and automatic transmission selector made of plastic coated "for aluminum. The center console are the nozzle air-conditioning, Analog Clock, stereo system, satellite navigation systems (installed on request) and controls the climate setting. Part of the center console located between the front seats, a box for small items with a rosette of 12 volts. Top box covered with a padded armrest. Not forgotten, and two tip-up cup holder.
Patented laths "under the tortoise shell, similar to those used for decoration spectacles, frame door handles, decorated with the selector lever and the upper part of the ARC steering wheel. These parts form a distinct, unique style. The illusion of "tortoise shell" is created by applying a translucent yellow-gold plastic on an aluminum base, and then applied another layer of dark, spotted polycarbonate gives to products finished appearance.
Chrysler 300C, designed for the European market, has tinted windows that reduce heat transfer, and thick (5 mm) glass front doors to reduce noise in the cabin. Two-band system of climate control is equipped with advanced sensors that allow completely independently regulate the microclimate in the right and left areas of the cabin. The system includes two light sensor located in the upper part of the control panel and can automatically adjust the work of the climate installation, depending on the level of illumination. Participating in the management of climate system is only in the initial installation of the desired parameters. Depending on your settings in the system provides two ranges of fan speed.
The vehicles, intended for sale in Europe, will be installed speaker Boston Acoustics-class "high-end". New audio of this class will already be installed as standard. This system has six speakers and speaker amplifier 288 watts. On the order can be established even more powerful amplifier power 380 W with additional loudspeakers. In both models there is a high-frequency speaker located on the center console, and 8 inch low-frequency speaker in the rear of the car. The antenna for the radio is built into the rear window.

From the remote control can also enable and disable the security alarm. Ignition key has a button for opening the trunk. Trunk can be opened and the button on the front panel.
Chrysler designers have developed a new approach, which allowed the company to return to the market rear-wheel drive luxury cars. " The long hood and short trunk, lifted the lower limit of glazing with high doors and smaller side windows, together form a distinctive and expressive image of sedan 300 C.
Short front and rear overhangs Chrysler 300 C stress greater wheelbase and large wheels, located as it were, outside the body, create an image of the car, which is the winner in the battle with the road. Body panels are made of conventional and high-strength steel, hood and trunk lid is made of aluminum alloy.
The dominant feature of the design of the Chrysler 300C is the design of the grille. Emphasize high, it smoothly above the contours of the bonnet and front bumper. This design decision - a tribute to cars, Chrysler release late fifties, wearing the same literal notation. Because of this new parts Chrysler 300 C can not be mixed with any other car. For the first time in the development of new products, engineers used a full-size car in the blowing wind tunnel of DaimlerChrysler in Detroit. It was able to optimize not only the general contours of the body, but small parts of the exterior. Were carried out research work on aerodynamics poddnischevoy zone car as has ever been made by engineers Chrysler. Through these activities, air resistance coefficient Cd of the new model is just 0,343.
Chrysler 300C offers both a rich set of passive safety. Three programmed deformation zones dampen the energy of frontal impact into the body. Dual front side members made from two types of high-strength steel, transmit shock loads to cross the front shield, which, in turn, redistributes the efforts on the side and lower bearing elements so as to maintain the Chrysler 300 saloon with the living space. Highly placed the lower boundary of the lateral glazing allowed to make a door, which have the smallest ratio of glass area to their total area compared to most other cars. Structurally, the door consists of two molded panels. This feature of construction, as well as the use of the internal amplifiers and tubular reinforcing beams ensures reliable protection of passengers in the event of a collision.
The electronic control unit airbag system uses four sensors to determine the impact of its intensity and direction. In addition to the adaptive front airbags driver and front passenger next generation car installed side curtain airbags, which are attached to the bearing elements of the roof above the doors. All passengers Chrysler 300 fitted with three point seat belts. Seatbelts driver and front passenger seats are equipped with pretensioners with force limiters tension.
Bearing elements of the rear Chrysler 300 are designed in accordance with the stringent requirements, prescriptive test the central body blow from behind at a speed of 80 km / h. The design of the type "pipe in pipe" provides the body rigidity and a character of deformation upon impact, where the fuel tank is not damaged.
The electronic device can help when reversing. To do this, the rear bumper installed sensors for detecting obstacles. To a driver with the Chrysler 300 - means of sound and light alarm, warning of possible danger. Outside mirrors automatically rotated when you select reverse gears. Frontal Visibility from the driver's seat improved by the installation of two new sensors. Rain sensor will automatically turn the front windshield wiper at the start of rain and light sensor will automatically turn on lights with the onset of darkness.

Based in the deepest crisis of Chrysler LLC introduced the Auto Show in Detroit is a very interesting vehicle called the 200C Concept. Some experts say that if Chrysler will be able to put this model on the conveyor, it can become the lifeline to pull Chrysler from financial ruin. The car some Americans really get very interesting.
In terms of size Chrysler 200C Concept will compete with such cars as the BMW 5-Series and Mercedes-Benz E-Class. Although the price it is, of course, would be a completely different niche. But Chrysler is not want to talk about the cost model. Representatives of the company are focused on design and engine. From design, everything is clear, he was successful. And now with regard to the power plant. Under the hood lies 200C hybrid engine, which has a total power of 268 hp In this case the electric motor gives in terms of kilowatt once 74 hp, which allows for low speed does not include a standard engine, which feeds gas ... (one electric 200C can drive about 60 km).
In general, all sounds very interesting. However, while representatives of Chrysler could not say when the 200C will go into mass production. But now we can certainly say - even if the model and stand on the conveyor, then it would be normal under the hood of the motor. And if it is a hybrid, it will eat gasoline. After the U.S. is now virtually non-existent infrastructure of fueling cars with gas.

The intersection of the highway with 66-m road
Rear-drive Chrysler Crossfire from the German word "donor" got the engine, transmission, and certain elements of the suspension. The big and heavy hood compartment is the engine capacity of 3.2 liter V6 with three valves per cylinder and one camshaft. His power - 215 horsepower and torque - 310 Nm, and it accounts for a maximum of 3000 rpm, but the engine is able to allocate 90% of the time in the range from 2600 to 5300 rpm. The choice offered 6-speed manual gearbox or 5-band "machine" with the function AutoStick. Calm, in principle, the nature of this unit in conjunction with a clearly aggressive in appearance - this is the main attractive point of the car. And even the sound of the engine does not extradite in Crossfire greedy "devourer of miles, it seems that he is ready to walk quietly through the city, basking in the admiring glances of others. The city feels himself in the spotlight, everyone is looking at Crossfire with interest and try to touch the car unseen hands. Indeed, even the streets of Moscow, this machine looks quite strange, but if we continue to cherish self-esteem, then you can click on the center console and rear will be a small spoiler. The effect on the surrounding surpasses all expectations.
Hand on heart, to ride in traffic jams on Crossfire difficult, a small interior area of glazing, and mirrors rather decorative rather than functional element.
German engine and automatic gearbox make it possible to move around the city in the same walking mode, however, stiff suspension sensitive to the countless bumps and creases. Having finally out of town, you can give to his feelings, which if laid up in a small cabin compartment. The dynamics of dispersal and the sound of the engine no relation to the notorious road of aggression do not have. The car accelerates confidently and smoothly, under the barely audible accompaniment motor box as smoothly and with almost theatrical pause, change gears. Bored? Far. None of the anxiety and anguish in the sound of the engine, from which very quickly get tired. There is a comfort and a sharp, tight steering, which allows to instantly change the direction of movement without any unnecessary manipulation and delay. At speeds over 100 km / h electric "produces" rear spoiler is without a driver, without his participation but also the reverse, as soon as the speedo needle would return to a mark of 60 km / h.
In the guise of "free American" lives "honest burgher." While a respectable "German" is sometimes a desire to frolic. "Barefoot" in the strict low-profile tires car at the entrance to turn begins to behave like a temperamental residents of the southern states. The rear axle is so persistently sought out that the driver starts to feel like a pilot site, the system stability for the time being remains neutral, as if assessing the qualifications of the driver and if in its opinion, it is sufficient, the electronics only their presence icon on the odometer. Despite such "beastly" habits, the car is easily stabilized, and the driver begins to feel mixed emotions. After a moment ago it seemed that the Crossfire - the next qualitative Gran Turismo. It appears not. US-German Role Coupe combines the two, although this has the merit of tires, "multigrade" which nominally. Disabling stabilization system, you can check the strength of his nervous system, because the car "dissolved" finally and now the driver gets the adrenaline rush that he needs.
Like any dynamic machine, Crossfire rely powerful brakes, coupled with electronic systems. Their "national identity" is hard to determine, Short-pedal, but soft, and in which the driver feels the dynamics of braking and can easily predict it. Electronics, as in the case of the stabilization system, in no hurry to intervene in the process.
The new machine - it's always emotional and always open. Chrysler Crossfire - the sea of positive emotions on the exterior of the car plus the reliability of the German units. The fact that such a symbiosis can exist, without doubt. I wonder on what side of the Atlantic synergetic effects generated by the car will have to court more?
Sunday, August 16, 2009
Synergetic effect - is coherence between the parts of the system. The fruit of such interaction between the parts of a large corporation can truly be called Chrysler Crossfire.
Across the Atlantic
New Concept 2-seater coupe from Chrysler was unveiled at the Detroit Motor Show in 2001, and already in 2003 with minimal modifications the car went into the series. Developed by Chrysler design center in Michigan and manufactured in Germany's car makers to immediately thrown into the crucible of competition from more than worthy rivals - Nissan 350Z and Audi TT. Given the current market conditions, the company offered to customers on both sides of the Atlantic car in which those and others will find "their native".
On the podium car looked bigger than when he appeared before us. Coupe Crossfire - a rare combination of American "gigantism" and popular in the 30 years of the last century, European-style art deco. The U.S. is, of course, prevails. Should look at the huge hood, large headlights with two "guns" and the imposing grille, as becomes clear on what a poet of the subconscious decided to play designers. Quite simply, because Americans revere their car culture as well as the flag of the country, their enormous coupe early 70's - the object of worship. Moreover, such a fine job with the emotions of the potential client can disguise the "donor" units Crossfire - Mercedes-Benz SLK 320. It is absolutely a win-win move! In the design of a new car emphasis on details and attributes, whether chrome windshield frame, or "gills" on the front fenders. In really huge wheel arches - shestispitsevye wheels, 18-inch front, 19-inch rear, shod "in season tires Continental. The roof line with a spectacular "backbone" in accordance with the ideology of the car smoothly falls to the rear bumper, making the Crossfire like classic Bugatti and Talbot Lago. Visitors from the past looks and door luggage, which is hidden inside the spoiler - it warms the hearts of romantics road, yet have forgotten what they were cars "golden age". Only dual exhaust pipe and modern "feed" lighting us back to the XXI century, where romance often sacrificed to pragmatism.
The car in sports is low, it is almost "lies" on the pavement, so even through a wide door to enter it not so easy, especially for a man is tall.
Beauty is small but designed in such a way that both passenger Crossfire receive a maximum of comfort, albeit in rather cramped conditions. The seats are indeed reminiscent of sport buckets, in fact are not, they have decorative lateral support and absolutely "civil" pillow. Driver's seat has eight elektroregulirovok, but the node control were located in a place that adjust the seat under him had to open the door, or hand simply not fit between the cushion and the door. This cozy, despite the fact that the texture of plastic is far from perfect, and leather upholstery, "American style" tough. Front panel divides into two zones: the center console, finished in the plastic under the metal on it - mersedesovsky control unit air conditioning, radio Infiniti and function keys.
Convenient, almost sports steering wheel made of soft plastic with a big button signal is governed only by the departure. Dials on the instrument panel of three: speedometer, obviously overloaded extra "graphics", tachometer and combined into a single "ring" standard sensors.
Strangely, the feeling of finality "plot" does not arise, many times we have seen the strange process of free exchange of interior details within a large corporation. Perhaps, in financial terms is justified, but in terms of emotional perception seems somehow sad.
On the other hand, the American car immediately "explains" the driver, why do you need and what kind of work closer to him, otherwise the trunk would have been bigger, and visibility back not be puzzled. "Environment" Crossfire - free direct route.

The highest priority in the design of maneuverable sport coupe (like Chrysler Crossfire) is an active safety (accident prevention). However, the Crossfire is equipped with all devices and passive safety, which could wish for. Acting in conjunction with the crumple zones of the body, they provide optimum protection for people in the cabin at real road accidents.
Chrysler Crossfire in the base version equipped with the latest active safety systems: anti-lock braking system (ABS), a system emergency braking assistance (BAS) and dynamic stabilization system (ESP ®). They increase the force of adhesion with the road surface and vehicle directional stability even under the most adverse weather conditions.
Unfortunately, still there are situations where it is impossible to avoid a collision. In this case the system of airbags (SRS) assesses the severity of impact and adequately respond to it. Chrysler Crossfire is equipped with a three-point seat belts mount, pretensioners and force limiters and belt tension. In addition, the number of passive safety devices Crossfire includes: front and side airbags (the latter are built into the door) for driver and front passenger, knee pads to protect the driver, as well as special deformable lining, covering all areas of the ceiling of the passenger compartment, which in an accident may injure the head of passengers.

I took note of what he said: "This is a real rocket and I like it," West Syed, that on the day of his driver out of the nine out of 10 rating. Maybe he gave it 9 instead of 10, he deserves because he is jealous, NASA does not use his "missile" at the recent Phoenix Mars mission. If you look at this photograph of 300C Condo in Florida, apparently, they used white instead of 300C Adam Black 300C with 4-wheel drive and the batmobile of license plates ...
BIG BAM hammer came down. Fiat is the new owner of most of the assets of Chrysler, they closed the case, perhaps, more eggs and ham breakfast. It said the new company will focus on small cars, the areas in which Chrysler has been weak. Well, if you reduce the 300C, it will look ridiculous, I think. They should fix some of their thoughts on this, you do not agree?

The current generation of Chrysler 300 debuted in 2005 model. Until 2009, 300C, of 5.7-liter V8, made 340 hp, but the powertrains were otherwise unchanged. The model was built in 2007, has received several additional features compared to previous years, and this was also the first year for the WP Chrysler Executive Series. In 2008, the model has been updated with some additional features and freshened styling external, and the 2009 Chrysler 300 have received significant updates, including the power to stimulate change the valve timing at 300C in 5.7-liter V8 and a new active transfer case to all wheels for improving fuel economy and efficiency. This year was also the debut of the comfort-tuned suspension and limited to the model 300C for those who are looking for a softer ride, an optional Chrysler 300C Heritage package, offering the same sports-tuned steering and suspension, as the Dodge Charger R / T Daytona, with a revised SRT8 a new grille, revised suspension tuning and standard equipment.
As fossil data, Chrysler 300 has a long history, but spotty. He emerged in the mid 1950's as a means of demonstrating the new Chrysler "hemi" V8 engine. The first 300 was introduced in 1955 and was based on the New Yorker two-door hard. Its 5.4-liter V8 developed 300 horsepower. After that, Chrysler began drawing sequential letters at the end of "300" for each year, and also offers various forms of bodywork, including a convertible. 1957 300-C, usually considered the most beautiful and desirable in these early cars. In the hemi engine was discontinued in 1958 after the 300, Chrysler, but they continued to use the letter of the do'65 300-L. After that, it was plain 300. In total, there were seven generations of the car before it was discontinued after the 1971 model.
300 name was briefly resurrected in 1979 for a special version of a rather awful Cordova. It will take another 20 years ago, Chrysler has decided to roll out 300 moniker again. That was in 1999, 300M. In contrast to previous 300, it was the only front-wheel drive sedan. On the basis of the second generation of Chrysler in the "cab forward" LH platform, 300M used 3.5-liter V6, resulting in 253 hp (this is the net horsepower, much more conservative than the standard "gross" rating used until 1972) and mounted longitudinally in the engine bay. It was built based on the model 2004.
In the Chrysler 300c is a large five-passenger sedan with rear-wheel or all-wheel drive. It was designed to appeal to consumers desiring something with a little more personality than a regular family sedan or an alternative to the popular Japanese or European entry-luxury sedans. Some of the 300c in the main, based on the original Mercedes-Benz technology, and its sister platform for the Dodge Charger.
300c in the styling, of course, American. A large chrome grille, double-lens headlights, high beltline, bulging fenders and large wheels of its strong presence on the road. A long 120-inch wheelbase shortens up the front and rear overhangs and opens up a lot of passenger seats in the territory. Cabin sizes generous in all directions, as well as more than 300c proposals for the feet than most of its competitors. Its overall interior design has been described as a simple but elegant. In the dash area effectively combines sporty, semi-deluxe and retro motifs.
In the Chrysler 300c comes in LX, Touring, Limited "," C "(labeled at 300C) and SRT8 trim levels. While the budget-oriented consumers may be attracted to the LX model of the low price, we recommend stepping up a tourist, or limited, as these trim levels come with the type of the standard functions expected for this class of cars. In the 300cC and SRT8 versions of the performance-oriented models. The main difference between them is that the SRT8 version has been configured and equipped to ensure maximum productivity, despite the fact that the 300cC Heritage Package reduces the processing space, 300cC equipped with sports-tuned suspension and steering. To the rear drive Touring models, and 300cC, Chrysler also offers the WP Chrysler Executive Series. This model is going to 6-inch-wide wheel base and provides additional leg in the back seat passengers.
For the power base of 300c is based on a weak 178-horsepower 2.7-liter V6, connected with four-speed automatic gearbox. Tourism and BMI have limited 3.5-liter, 250 hp V6, a five-speed automatic. On the top shelf, 300cC and 300cC SRT8 features V8 engine with five-speed automatics. At 300c in the V8 makes 359 hp and the SRT8 boasts of 425 horsepower. In the SRT8 also includes a rigid suspension setup, more powerful brakes and larger wheel and tire package. 300c Most are rear-drive, but Chrysler offers all-wheel-drive versions of the tour, limited and 300C.
In Edmunds.com reviews of the Chrysler 300c, the car is made fairly well. Our editors have commented favorably on its male appearance, powerful engine V8, the long list of safety features and value in U.S. dollars. Bans little but focus on the meager output of the base model V6 car and the poor external visibility. Those desiring maximum fun, no doubt, will be pleased with the 300C SRT8, which can hit 60 miles / hour and the deadlock just 5.7 seconds.
We found these two Chrysler 300C replicas are based on "Intorg". While the Rolls-Royce derivative can deceive one eye Siberian pariah after half a bottle of vodka shots, a Bentley, which is actually more similar to the Rover 75, is less likely to be mistaken for an Arnage or a Continental Flying Spur, as Siberian guy we talked about before, to get lucky in a Russian winter. However, if any of these faux British grew a hair or two on the chest, the "Bentley" is built on the 2007 Chrysler 300 V6 2.7L, and it can be yours for $ 32,895, while his "Rolls Royce" counterpart, is built on 2005 Chrysler 300 AWD V6 3.5L, and it costs $ 37,895.
