Hey, here's a pic of it.
(I love how there are some spelling errors in sites... doesn't anyone proofread?! They need to hire me!!! ex: chryslr)
Anyways, question... if it's so lightweight and fast (as many cars nowadays are tending to be) what are the SAFETY factors? I can picture that car zooming into a wall and getting totally crushed from front to back. Lovely. [paranoid]
Oh, and it's really HOT!!! [:D]

Saw it at the car show a laughed at it all those times are not accurate their estimated its another concept car that will never come into production just like the Cadillac Sixteen
Ill take an Italian Supercar over that any day of the week The Bugatti is gonna be fast once they actually let someone test out the times

the bugatti HAS been tested. in fact, the prototype vehicle almost crashed into a wall when they were testing it on one of the circuits in europe. go figure.
and the chrysler is NOT a "concept". it's a prototype, meaning fully functional, and ready to go into production, given the go-ahead.

This is sooo last year. I posted about the Chrysler ME Four Twelve in the "2004 Detroit Auto Show" thread. Anyways, it's hella bad. So is the Saturn. See my thread for details.
