Dodge Unleashes a Monstrous 2,590HP Virtual Supercar for Gran Turismo 6
It’s hard not to argue that Dodge is the current king of horsepower. What with 707-horsepower Charger and Challenger Hellcats in the lineup, affordable horsepower is less than $70K away. But what if Dodge went after Ferrari and McLaren on the (virtual) track?
That’s exactly what they did with this 2,590-horsepower monster of a machine called the Tomahawk. Don’t worry, though, it won’t be wreaking havoc on any neighborhood streets near you. Or real-life tracks, for that matter.
The Tomahawk hypercar concept was created in collaboration with Gran Turismo designers specifically for the new Gran Turismo 6 video game. Yes, it has a ridiculous amount of power, but it was created by SRT engineers to predict the future of racing 20 years from now. That means the 7.0-liter V10 under the hood is helped by a hybrid gasoline-pneumatic powertrain.
It also comes in three flavors: S, with 700 horsepower, GTS-R with 1,450 horsepower, and the hardcore 2,950-horsepower Tomahawk X. The latter should be the one you really want to drive.
The Gran Turismo team hasn’t announced when the Tomahawk will be available for download. When it is, it should blow all other virtual supercars out of the water.
