Welcome to the Crossfire Innovations website. The site has largely been brought about by the amount of interest shown in the various Crossfire developments I have been working on intermittently over the last 2 years. Encouraged by this interest, my own unending enthusiasm for this car, and the relative lack of interest from the tuning and aftermarket fraternity, I have decided to develop some of my ideas into actual products. Things are very much in the early stages and this is still a personal site, funded and maintained by myself in my spare time, so updates and progress maybe somewhat sporadic.

I am still constructing the site so it is currently a bit disorganised. As things progress I will rationalise the various sections and try and pull it all together. I have just tried to add as much information as possible and index it as best I can as time allows. be adding more detail and a lot more pictures, video and information.
In the meantime please have a look around and feel free to email me with your comments via the contact page. The Gallery is probably the best place to start.

My philosophy for developing modifications has always been to gain a full understanding of the systems on the car and how they interact, before making any changes. Whilst this approach takes more time, I believe it is the best way forward if major problems are to be avoided further down the line. I will be extensively testing everthing on my own car, both as my daily driver and trackday stead. Apart from liking things to be properly engineered, I also think you should give them a certain visual impact, which is exactly what drew me to the Crossfire in the first place.

The Crossfire 'TrackSport'
My Ultimate aim is to develop a complete range of modifications to produce a more sporting, track-oriented version of the Crossfire, along the lines of Porsche's RS variants, which I will be designating the 'TrackSport'.

The focus will be on weight saving, increasing power, improved braking and handling, some and subtle cosmetic additions to distinguish it from the standard car. This will be achieved through a combination of electronic tweaks, replacement parts and panels. I am also determine not to compromise the original car's refinement to the point where it can no longer be used as a daily driver; there's little joy in a 200 mile round trip with a droning exhaust and rock-hard suspension. Reliablity is also paramount. By any stretch this is a massive project, and it can only be completed after I have developed all the constituent parts. I may end up with a complete 'white elephant' but I will never know unless I try!
You can find out more in the TrackSport section where I will soon be adding concept sketches and a full specification.
