The Tomahawk is a Viper V-10 based motorcycle, a 500 horsepower engine with
four wheels beneath it. Chrysler will be selling the original Tomahawk
concept and nine replicas through Neiman Marcus, for up to $555,000 each. The
motorcycles cannot be licensed, so they cannot be legally driven on public
roads. A Chrysler spokesman told Reuters they were meant as rolling sculptures.
Rumors had the Tomahawk selling for under $200,000, most likely at a loss or
breakeven price, for publicity purposes – but still fully drivable. Wolfgang
Bernhard, Chrysler’s not particularly respected first mate, was said to be
enthusiastic about that project, so much so that hundreds were projected to be
built at under $200,000 each. They reportedly cost Chrysler over $100,000 to
build (admittedly the work is outsourced). The Dodge Tomahawk can reach 60
miles an hour in about 2.5 seconds, and has a theoretical top speed of nearly
400 mph. Each pair of wheels is separated by a few inches and each wheel has an
independent suspension. Bernhard said four wheels were necessary to handle the
power from the engine. The Tomahawk remains on display at auto shows –
though well out of reach of the general public, elevated on a special display.
