chrysler me 412

anyone else seen this bad boy?? was watching ESPN2's coverage of some auto show at work yesterday, and they were talking about it. wtf!?! 0-60 in 2.9 seconds, 0-100 in just over 6 seconds. 850hp, 850 lbft of torque... "ME" for mid-engine, "412" for 4 turbochargers, 12 cylinders. insane!!

PIC

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.

Oh, and it's really HOT!!!

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.
