|Dodge Tomahawk - Viper V10 powered insanity
The insane potential widowmaker Dodge conceived and subsequently named
the Tomahawk was first seen at the Detroit Auto Show in 2003. The
bike is powered by the same 500 hp 8.3 litre V-10 found in the legendary
Dodge say the Tomahawk is capable of over 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. Interestingly it also features hub-center steering.
