We’ll be the first to admit that the Chrysler PT Cruiser, which feels like it has been around forever, is starting to show its age. The world first saw the PT Cruiser back in 2000 and so far over 7000 Australians have taken one home, joining over 1,300,000 buyers worldwide.

Despite its age, if you’ve ever wanted to own this iconic car now is the perfect time with the arrival of the 2009 Chrysler PT Cruiser Special Edition starting from $29,990 drive away (manual).

The Special Edition PT Cruiser is based on the PT Cruiser touring and is powered by the same 2.4-litre engine which produces 105 kW and 214 Nm of torque. It will be available either as a 5-speed manual or an optional four-speed automatic transmission.

Chrysler Australia says only a handful of the limited edition models are destined for Australia and subsequently, the cars are only available in “Brilliant Black”.
