1. Dodge Tomahawk

This mean machine runs on four wheels instead of two. It is so massive that it needs two extra wheels to support itself on the asphalt.

With an 8.3 litre 10 cylinder V-type engine and 500 bhp this mean machine can go from zero to 97 mph in 2.5 seconds. The top speed of this quadricycle is 640 kph. Power doesn't come to all and this Dodge proves the same.

Only 10 of these powerful lugs were made throughout the world which fetched an eye wobbling figure of $555,000 each.
