The SRT Tomahawk Hypercar Is A 2,590-hp Monster, Unfortunately It Doesn't Actually Exist Yet

Don't get too attracted to this sleek-looking SRT Tomahawk, because at the moment it's just a concept. As part of the Vision Gran Turismo project developer Polyphony Digital has been partnering with various car makers to produce concepts supercars to introduce to Gran Turismo 6 for players to drive.

The SRT Tomahawk is one of those from Chrysler, who see a release date for the real-world model being around 2035, so you only have two decades to wait. But it'll be coming to the PS3 this summer so that's something.

It comes three ways, the Tomahawk S, entry level, which has 1,007hp, the racing GTS-R which has 1,450hp and can travel up to 300mph, and an experimental 'X' version with 2,590hp which can hit up to 404mph and requires the driver to wear a G-suit for cornering. Of course, this is all just virtual.

Here's some more info on it:

The main power source of the Tomahawk is a 7 litre V10 engine with a 144 degree bank angle. The front tyres are connected to a pneumatic power unit that stores compressed air to produce drive force. This pneumatic power unit not only drives the front wheels, it also operates the air suspension system for all 4 wheels and powers the pressurisation of the G-suit worn by the driver.

In addition, it is also utilised to activate the aero panels placed all over the body. The Tomahawk has built-in aero panels above the 4 fenders at the rear end of the body sides and at the rear, which are activated by pneumatic power as necessary to produce downforce and even perform yaw control of the car in corners.

A revolutionary active camber system adjusts the wheel knuckles to “lean” the vehicle into turns, with each wheel angling outboard or inboard to maintain the optimum tyre contact patch and highest possible mechanical grip. (via)
