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

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
