Dodge Tomahawk
Life just got more extreme. Much more extreme

The Viper-powered Dodge Tomahawk concept vehicle, revealed by the Chrysler Group at the 2003 North American International Auto Show, shatters all the barriers of conventional thinking about personal transportation. This four-wheel, single-passenger vehicle is a sleek, rolling sculpture that combines art-deco styling with extreme engineering.

The 500-horsepower Viper V-10 engine powering the dual rear wheels gives this radical vehicle a potential top speed of 420 miles per hour – for anyone who wants to test it. "The Dodge brand philosophy always challenges us to grab life by the horns," said British-born Trevor Creed, Senior Vice President – Design, Chrysler Group, as the Tomahawk roared into view. "In the case of Tomahawk, grabbing and holding onto anything for dear life is a necessity. It’s just that extreme and passionate; a glimpse into the soul and commitment of true enthusiasts."

Initial reaction to the concept vehicle typically comes in two words: "Wow!" and "why?"
