    It would make sense that most of the engine is made by Mercedes...That is going to be one awe-inspiring car when it comes out.

    Sweet car! Definitely looks like a supercar, but has a few original design cues and a few Chrysler design themes as well...

    Dream on. Chrysler doesn't have the balls to build something with more power per pound than a GSXR-1000. They just tease, and send us more barges.

    They could build a car like the Radical, without stealing the engine from a motorcycle, (so it could have reverse) and still retain the sequential shifter for less than the cost of a Civic. Performance like that always seems to come with an inflated price tag and too many cylinders.

    If you don't know, a Radical is a car that uses a Hayabusa motorcycle engine. It has an open cockpit and seats two. Lap times are better than stock sportbikes and comparable to highly modified ones. One that costs less than a Civic wouldn't have some of the exotic hardware, but most of the exotic stuff really doesn't make it a lot faster, just a little faster, it is the basic geometry that has the magic. A production line is what would make it affordable.

    To make my point about the exotic hardware, I remember reading an article in a motorcycle magazine about 15 years ago. It was about a superkart that used a 250cc 60 hp two stroke motorcycle roadrace engine. It had no suspension at all, but it lapped 10 seconds faster than the pure racebike (TZ250) the engine was meant to power. Nothing is less exotic than a kart chassis. Except maybe a wheelbarrow.
