SRT Tomahawk Vision Gran Turismo

As the Vision Gran Turismo project continues, companies are rolling out ideas for hyper cars one after another. This time, Dodge brings their SRT Tomahawk Vision Gran Turismo to the table, Dodge’s high-tech and high-performance concept for Gran Turismo 6 on the Playstation. This is a digital version of sheer automotive genius, but unfortunately this is a concept that will never have a chance of making it to the production line.


Like many of the other Vision Gran Turismo concepts, the SRT Tomahawk is a bold, outrageous design that’s primary focus is to make the air avoid the car. A low-slung roof, wide stance, massive air intakes, and active aerodynamics all seem like things that were though of by a sci-fi movie director, but they actually work. Using lightweight materials, the SRT Tomahawk clocks in a weight of only 2,026 pounds in its base configuration, dropping all the way to 1,658 pounds in the range-toping X configuration. All of the active aerodynamics on the car are driven by a pneumatic system that is also used as a propulsion system. An active, scanning laser system is the eye for the active aero system, as it is constantly changing depending on driving conditions.


While little has been said about the interior of the SRT Tomahawk, Dodge has made it clear that the inside is laid out as a single-seat configuration. Based on the appearance of the exterior, many people are speculating that the interior will be equally as futuristic as the exterior, with touchscreens scattered everywhere and racing gadgets that allow for engine and chassis tuning.


The real attention-grabber of the Tomahawk is not only its looks, but also the drivetrain. The entry-level S version of the Tomahawk receives a powerful V10 engine, producing 792 horsepower and when it is paired to the pneumatic engine that produces 215 horses, that is a grand total of 1,007 total horsepower. Top speed for the S model is in excess of 250 mph. The top of the line X model tops the charts with 2,168 horsepower coming from the V10, while 422 horses come from the pneumatic system. This gives the SRT Tomahawk X version a total of 2,590 horsepower. The X version has a top speed of 404 mph and requires the driver to wear a G-suit, preventing passing out while driving.
