Chrysler muscle car aims at Corvette

2005-01-10 08:27

This muscle car is powered by a 6.1-liter HEMI V8 engine and its chassis is sourced from Dodge Viper.

The SRT-developed engine is exclusive to the Chrysler Group's high-performance products. It has a power output of 315 kW while torque is 569 Nm.

The Firepower uses a rear-wheel drive chassis with suspension and brakes fitting of a thoroughbred performance vehicle. A world-class 5-speed automatic transmission with AutoStick melds luxury and sport.

The exterior is covered in Hydro Silver Pearl, with dark carbon fiber and polished aluminum accents.

In addition to embodying Chrysler grand tourer spirit in the exterior design, Computational Fluid Dynamics modeling was used to shape the body with aerodynamics in mind.

Design for proper engine cooling as well as down force in the rear are achieved through this modeling.

Although there are no production plans insiders suggest that this concept could become reality to rival the iconic Chevrolet Corvette.
