2003 Dodge Tomahawk Concept

The Viper-powered Dodge Tomahawk concept vehicle 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 nearly 400 miles per hour - for anyone who wants to test it. The Tomahawk roared into public view at the North American International Auto Show.

"The Dodge brand philosophy always challenges us to grab life by the horns," said Trevor Creed, Senior Vice President - Design, Chrysler Group. "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."

The "wow" is easy to understand from Dodge, the brand that continues to drive its foot to the floor - most recently with the all-new 2003 Viper, Heavy Duty and Light Duty Rams and an SRT lineup dedicated to engineering the most powerful production vehicles in their segments.

But "why" would a company, famous for its innovative car and truck designs, go down this particular path?

"Tomahawk is an icon of the extreme thinking for a brand that is known not only for the legendary Viper and Ram, but also for all new, innovative vehicles such as the Magnum SRT-8 and Durango concepts," said Creed.

That extreme thinking produced a machine in the true tradition of power-junkie passion, powered by a 505 cu. in., 8300 cc aluminum Viper V-10 engine.

"This is a bold faced slap against mediocrity," Creed said. "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."

The Dodge Tomahawk is a Chrysler Group design concept that is as much a Viper-powered work of art as it is a whole new type of vehicle invention. It is both a sculpture that can be ridden, as well as a bold statement about the Chrysler Group's enthusiast culture and passion for design.

"Tomahawk moves design concept introductions and the concept car game to a whole new level - as only Dodge and the Chrysler Group can," said Creed.

Old subject . . . . . but here's some more info from 2003:



Auburn Hills, Mich., Oct 01, 2003 - The Dodge Tomahawk concept bike made a lot of noise at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit in January 2003. A second Tomahawk is about to be heard from.

DaimlerChrysler has commissioned a hand-built reproduction of the Dodge Tomahawk, the four-wheel, single-passenger vehicle that has captivated enthusiasts in the United States and internationally since its debut. The Tomahawk replica, sculpted out of aluminum around a 505 cubic inch, V-10 Dodge Viper engine, will be sold through the prestigious Neiman Marcus Christmas book published this week.

The reproduction is priced at $555,000. The sleek, rolling sculpture combines art-deco styling with extreme engineering in a vehicle that has come to symbolize DaimlerChrysler’s commitment to creativity and innovation. "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" said Trevor Creed, Senior Vice President, Design, Chrysler Group.

The Tomahawk reproduction will be fabricated by the original builders as a piece of automotive sculpture. It is intended for display only; the reproduction will not be fully operational and cannot be legally operated on public roads.

The Tomahawk reproduction is featured on Page 61 of the Christmas Book from Neiman Marcus, the up-scale Dallas-based retailer. The bike will be delivered 90 days after the order is taken.

In addition to the vehicle commissioned for Neiman Marcus, up to nine additional Tomahawk reproductions may be produced.

i was going around the photo gallery in www.dodgetomahawk.com & i found pics that show the headlights located between the front & rear wheels. & on the specification page it says that 0-60 is est. 2.5 secs & topspeed of 300+ mph est. are they serious?
i saw this bike in a Durango ad on TV.

Yes, they're serious that they estimated those times. But then again, I'm seriously estimating that I'll make a million bucks this yr too.

they're just estimates, and haven't been proven. probably never will be.
