What would you trade for a Jeep Hurricane? - DUAL 5.7L Hemis - Unbelievable

Stumbled across this today and I am absolutely amazed. I would trade a kidney for one of these...

From Jeep HERE

"Show-stopping concepts and extreme expressions of the Chrysler Group LLC brands aren't new: Dodge had its Tomahawk and Chrysler, the ME Four-Twelve. But when the Jeep® Hurricane blew onto Auto Show stage, it raised the bar for the Jeep brand."Jeep Hurricane is simply the most maneuverable, most capable and most powerful 4x4 ever built," said Trevor Creed, Senior Vice President—Chrysler Group LLC Design. "It pays homage to the extreme enthusiasts' Jeep vehicles in form and off-road capability, but is a unique interpretation of Jeep design. Simply stated, it is the extreme example for the Jeep brand."


Hurricane represents the continued success of bold concept vehicles for the brands as a means of demonstrating Chrysler Group LLC's creative and mechanical expertise. For example, powerful powertrain performance is an understatement considering the Hurricane is not just HEMI®-equipped, but HEMI squared. There are two 5.7-liter HEMI engines in the vehicle: one in the front and one in the back. Both engines deliver 335 horsepower and 370 lb-ft of torque—a total of 670 hp and 740 lb-ft of torque.
Can you have responsible excess? To test the theory, we equipped both HEMI engines in the Jeep Hurricane with the Chrysler Group LLC Multi-Displacement System (MDS). Depending on the driver's needs, the Hurricane can be powered by 4-, 8-, 12- or 16-cylinders. All of that translates into buckets of torque for climbing obstacles other 4x4 vehicles can't even comprehend. In addition, it has the power and traction to move from 0-60 in less than five seconds.


The power is delivered through a central transfer case and split axles with a mechanically controlled four-wheel torque distribution system. The front and rear suspension is short/long arm independent with 20 inches of suspension travel, controlled by coilover shocks with remote reservoirs.
The design is lightweight with high strength, and it boasts a functional appearance.



Jeep Hurricane is an honest, minimalist approach to its design augmented with the Jeep signature seven-slot grille, two seats and no doors. On the inside, occupants will be surrounded by exposed carbon fiber and polished aluminum with Black Thunder and Tiluminum accents"

Since it'll never be produced, it's kind of a moot point...

and who wants a car that can't decide what direction it wants to go!

Guess I should of added this , because it appears that I killed the thread. She does need a kidney but I was just joking. Now back to your Hurricane dream.

You know.. As amazing as the specs look on this old concept jeep.. I don't want it. A jeep without solid axles... Screw that. Might as well be a hummer or FJ cruiser in my book.
