Decision time for ME412

Discussion in 'American Cars' started by ajzahn, Aug 30, 2004.

  1. Chrysler’s 850bhp ME-Four-Twelve might be down, but it’s not out yet. Many wrote it off after the departure of its champion, former Chrysler chief operating officer Wolfgang Bernard; it has recently been spotted in development at the Laguna Seca raceway in California however, and has a new hero in DaimlerChrysler chairman Juergen Schrempp.

    The AMG V12-powered, quad turbocharged supercar will have to be a money-spinner for its maker though. Chrysler CEO Dieter Zetsche has warned that he’s not prepared to take a loss on the project, which would be largely outsourced to specialists like Roush and Ricardo. A final decision is expected before the end of this year. (Autocar)
     
  2. make it! give you some brand identity to go along with the viper and new SRT cars
     
  3. QUIT STALLING & BUILD THE DAMN THING!!!
     
  4. Will Chrysler/Mercedes have the money to make it? But if i were them, i would call it a Mercedes if anything. But hey, hopefully it will be a good car, no matter who makes it.

  6. Produce it, but maybe with twin turbos.
     
  7. The who idea is to make it an American named supercar. Naming it a Mercedes would destroy the whole idea....they already have supercars.
     
  8. If theyre looking to profit from this type of car then they dont get it. This car is to technically demonstrate to the world what Chrysler can put together, the recognition and greater respect the world over is where they should be expecting the main returns.
     
  9. theyll have to do what ford is doing with the gt and sell them for just enough to break even
     
  10. Any European who downs the Ford GT ( and I havent heard one make a sound yet) is just jealous.
     
  11. as long as they don't lose money

    the free advertising and merchandising rights(toys, games, ect)are worth every penny not spent
