Concepts: Chrysler ME Four-Twelve
Chrysler ME Four-Twelve
The engine in the ME 412 is a very light, aluminum engine. This V12, coupled with the four turbochargers, is one of the lightest V12 engines in any production car, as well as one of the most powerful, with 850 horsepower. The car can accelerate from 0-60 mph in 2.9 seconds, and 0-100 mph in 6.2 seconds. It can cover a quarter mile in 10.6 seconds, with a trap speed of 136 mph (219 km/h). These numbers result in an estimated top speed of 248 mph (399 km/h), just 5 mph slower than the original Bugatti Veyron.
