Chrysler Hurricane !

September 17, 2012

The Jeep Hurricane is a concept off-road machine that was unveiled in Detroit, in 2005, at the North American Auto Show. Its name obviously refers to the Willys Hurricane engine, which powered other Willy’s and Jeep vehicles for more than 20 years. The hurricane’s body consists of one piece and is composed generally of light-weight carbon fibers. Its skid plate is an aluminum spine that connects the chasis to the underside of the jeep. Inside the hurricane have place for two people, without doors and roof.

The thing that makes the difference between Hurricane and other jeeps is Hurricane’s ability to rotate around its center. This is possible thanks to Millen Works who designed four-wheel steering system. This system also allows the vehicle to move sideways.
The vehicle is equipped with two 5.7 liter HEMI engines with 335 hp each, so the driver can use total power of 670hp. But that’s not all – the driver can choose if he want to use 4, 8, 12 or 16 cylinders. This is probably the fastest accelerating jeep reaching 100 km/h in less than 5 seconds.Chrysler decided not to put it into serial production because it comes too expensive and probably the demand won’t be enough.
