Jeep Hurricane

The Jeep Hurricane is a concept vehicle that was unveiled at the 2005 North American International Auto Show in Detroit by Jeep, a subsidiary of Daimler-Chrysler. The Hurricane's one-piece body is composed largely of light-weight structural carbon fiber. Its skid plate is an aluminum spine that connects the chassis to the underside of the vehicle. The Hurricane doesn’t have side doors or a roof, and there is only seating for two people. The driver and passenger enter the vehicle over bulkheads on each side. The Hurricane features a MillenWorks designed four-wheel steering system that allows the Hurricane to move sideways. Its principal exterior designer was Aaron Pizzuti. The concept went on to win IDEA Silver Award, a Popular Science "Best of what's new" award,and an AutoWeek Editor's Choice award in the "Most Fun" category. It is not expected to be a production vehicle. However, many patents were secured in the Hurricane’s development. Specifications :
