The insane potential widowmaker Dodge conceived and subsequently
named the Tomahawk was first seen in 2003 at the Detroit
Auto Show. The bike is powered by the same 500 hp 8.3
litre V-10 found in the legendary Viper,
and is capable of propelling the concept up to 300 mph+,
theoretically. However in practice the poor aerodynamics
of the bike would cause it to become unstable at high
speeds and it would be suicidal to try.
Dodge produced the Tomahawk concept to hammer home its
power orientated design philosophy, which encompasses
cars such as the Viper, Magnum
SRT-8 and Hemi Super
8 among others, it was never intended for mass production.
Dodge sold a very limited number of Tomahawks as rideable
pieces of modern art to a select few of rich enthusiasts.
Overall the design of the Dodge Tomahawk is one of clean
machined lines housing the massive, partially exposed
engine and 4 oversize wheels.
