Last week, Dodge shared some teaser images of the newest addition to the Vision Gran Turismo project: the SRT Tomahawk Vision Gran Turismo. Yesterday, Dodge unleashed the Tomahawk to the world and it is now available in Gran Turismo 6. The Tomahawk was design to be Dodge’s look into the future of motoring and what their company will be making then.
Like Dodge said last week, the SRT Tomahawk is a single-seat, hybrid hyper car that will have a lightweight body and wide aerodynamic properties. Dodge did fail to mention massive V10 that will power the front wheels, and unusual compressed air driven pneumatic energy system that will basically function like an F1 car’s KER system that will power the front. This system can also operate the different, always moving aerodynamic panels, change the variable spring rate, and pressurize the driver’s G-suit.
Dodge has created three different performance levels of the SRT Tomahawk which can all be driven in GT6 once you have completed the driver challenges. The entry-level Tomahawk S will have a 7.0 L V10 that delievers 792 hp, combination with the 215 hp pneumatic drive, for a total system output of 1,007 hp. This will be the heaviest version of the SRT Tomahawk, coming in at just over a ton, and will easily reach speeds over 250 mph.
The racing Tomahawk GTS-R will push the system output to 1,450 hp, with the V10 creating 1,137 hp and the pneumatic drive producing 313hp. This will be the lightest version of the Tomahawk, coming in at around 1,459, giving the Tomahawk nearly a one-to-one power to weight ratio. The GTS-R will be able to reach speeds over 300 mph.
Lastly, the ultimate Tomahawk X will push the technology to the very edge of performance. The total system output is an eye watering 2,590 hp, with the V10 creating 2,168 hp and the pneumatic drive producing 422hp. This much power will push the Tomahawk X past speeds of 404 mph, and will require the use of the G-suit in-order to protect the driver.
Since this is on GT6, gamers can expect to some nice paint schemes, and some tuning and tire options. This is Dodge and Fiat Chrysler’s first time working with Polyphony Digital, Inc, and hopefully this will not be the last.
