The Viper powered Dodge Tomahawk concept certainly looks great and it boasts an impressive set of figures. The 500 horsepower Viper V10 engine powering the dual rear wheels gives this radical vehicle a potential top speed of nearly 400 miles per hour - for anyone who wants to test it.
"This is a bold faced slap against mediocrity," said Trevor Creed, Senior Vice President - Design, Chrysler Group.. "Tomahawk is a scintillating example of what creative minds can do when given the opportunity to run free. It is a pure mechanical sculpture and a joyous celebration of the artistry and emotion of design."
This four-wheel, single passenger bike is a sleek, rolling sculpture that combines art-deco styling with extreme engineering.
It certaily packs a huge 'Wow" factor and the 8,300cc aluminium Viper V10 engine is a proven performer. The only problem was that the rider couldn't turn corners and even in a straight line the Tomahawk, packed just a little too much punch! Still it looks fantastic!
