    just noticed this little gem
    i think it would technically be a car as it has 4 wheels, kind of, and they are individually suspended, it looks that way anyway

    basically a viper engine on wheels then, nice :D

    ladies and gentlemen, the dodge tomahawk


    msrp $12,995 (maybe)

    "But officer I just wanted to feel the power between my legs"

    Dodge is putting a viper engine in their truck as well.....Enter the SRT-10..Ram

    Same engine but top speed is only 150mph....

    Read about this a few months ago. Gonna be a very serious bike. I think it's going to retail at something ridiculous like £100k IIRC.

    I remember reading that they only have an estimated top speed as no-one's taken the bike up high enough. But jesus, add two wings and it'll probably fly.

    My favourite bit of the article/interview has the last part when they asked what's the project's current status. Dodge replied, "We're trying to figure out a way of making it turn". :hehe:

    400mph down a freeway, and a bus going the other way... = 470mph closing speed.... I wonder how far into the bus the bike would go and how many people it would wipe out :D

    you know at an accident site they mark "bits" with white circles? A biker hit a bus going at 60, he was doind 120, and the marks on the road looked like someone had taken a handful of grit, tossed it on the road and circled every bit of grit.

    My cousin's husband is on the "accident mess" cleanup team, and inadvertadly they were finding bits everywhere as they went along, and they found the helmet with the guys eyeballs stuck to the visor.

    Well at least the helmet saved something for identification...
