When it comes to personal transportation, the Dodge Tomahawk concept vehicles shatter all the barriers of conventional thinking. This thing is a rolling sculpture which combines extreme engineering with art-deco styling.
The Dodge Tomahawk was a non–street legal concept vehicle introduced by Dodge at the 2003 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, Michigan.

The Dodge Tomahawk – extreme engineering plus art-deco styling!

The Art Deco design was the work of Chrysler staff designer Mark Walters and featured the 500 hp (370 kW) 8.3-litre (510 cu in) V10 SRT10 engine from the Dodge Viper. The vehicle has two front wheels and two rear wheels, making it a kind of motorised quadricycle rather than a typical motorcycle. The pairs of wheels move independently, allowing it to countersteer and lean in turns like a motorcycle.

Hand-built examples of the Tomahawk were offered for sale through the Neiman Marcus catalog at a price of US$ 555,000, and up to nine of them might have sold. Well, the figures seem impressive, but who would be willing to test it? I mean, since Evil Knievel has retired. Check out the video to find out more!
