DaimlerChrysler AG expects that its new Crossfire will boost Chrysler's image in Europe, even though the car will be in short supply. Chrysler says the Crossfire, priced at 37,200 euros in Europe, is positioned against the Audi TT, BMW Z4, Mercedes-Benz SLK and Nissan 350Z. The Crossfire is built by independent coach builder Karmann in Osnabruck, Germany. Karmann specializes in convertibles, leading to speculation that the coupe will be followed by an open-top version.
