THE HAGUE — SRT is a well-known indication for car lovers. For those who are not familiar with the abbreviation: SRT stands for Street and Racing Technology. Dodge uses it for the Viper, the Neon and the Ram, always followed by the number of cylinders. The SRT versions are race-inspired and street-legal.

Now Chrysler is also going to use the SRT badge for the Crossfire coupe and roadster, which will also be the first SRT vehicles available outside North America.

Chrysler presented the 2005 Crossfire SRT-6 at the Geneva Auto Show earlier this month.

The new version is equipped with a hand-built 330 horsepower, 3.2-liter supercharged V-6 and 310 foot-pounds of torque working with an upgraded version of Chrysler’s five-speed automatic transmission with AutoStick. The SRT-6 should be able to perform zero to 60 mph in five seconds.

The interior is souped up with leather sport seats and embroidered SRT-6 badges.

On the outside the fast versions are recognizable by the rear spoiler, the front fascia “chin” spoiler and the 18/19 inch wheels with low Michelin Pilot Sport tires.
