Monday October 6, 2003 DaimlerChrysler has announced that a hand-built replica of the Dodge Tomahawk concept - the monstrous four-wheel motorcycle first revealed at the North American International Auto Show in January 2003 - is to go on sale at a price of US$555,000.

"Unconventional" doesn't begin to describe the extreme engineering showcased in the Tomahawk.

Art-deco styling and a sleek aluminium frame surround a 505 cubic inch, V-10 Dodge Viper engine driving the dual-rear wheels to a potential top speed in the vicinity of 400 miles per hour.

Testing this top-speed will not be an option for those interested in the US$555,000 replica - fabricated by the original builders as a piece of "automotive sculpture", the Tomahawk reproduction is intended for display only and will not be fully operational and cannot be legally operated on public roads.

The vehicle is being sold through the Christmas Book from Dallas-based retailer Neiman Marcus.

In addition to the vehicle commissioned for Neiman Marcus, up to nine additional Tomahawk reproductions may be produced according to DaimlerChrysler.
