New Chrysler V8 fires at Corvette

The Firepower is a grand tourer concept car which is powered by the company's 6.1-litre HEMI V8 engine.

However, the concept's name will be changed before the show as the name "Firepower" is apparently not legally available.

Insiders suggest that it will have a top speed of 296 km/h and if it makes production it will rival sports car icons such as the Corvette.

Chrysler says that the car is based on the sizzling Dodge Viper. It is a two-seater featuring a tinted glass roof that extends to the tailgate, allowing driver and passenger an enhanced feeling of spaciousness.
