Description

The "Chrysler Firepower Concept was a concept car based on the Dodge Viper chassis which was first unveiled at the 2005 Detroit Auto Show. With styling cues taken from the Chrysler Crossfire and ME-412 Concept, 'Computational Fluid Dynamics' modelling was used to shape the body with aerodynamics, sufficient down-force and engine cooling in mind. It was finished off in 'Hydro Silver Pearl' with dark carbon fibre and polished aluminum accent and enormous 7 Spoked wheels. The Viper's 6.1 L Hemi V8 was estimated to take the car from 0-62mp/h in 4.5 seconds with a top speed of 175mp/h (282km/h). The 5-Speed automatic transmission allowed for both luxury and performance. With initial speculation of a production model, Chrysler put an end to the rumours in December 2006 with Senior Vice-President of Design, Trevor Creed, stating "We're not doing Firepower; we just couldn't find a viable way to do it."

The Hot Wheels version is a rare non-Japanese design by Jun Imai which debuted in the 2006 First Edition Series.
