2. Plymouth Prowler

The Hot Rod culture is one of the key ingredients of the American automotive landscape. However, no company ever dared to present a factory built Hot Rod until 1997 when Plymouth presented the Prowler – a retro-futuristic roadster with a V6 engine and fantastic looks. Imagined as the follow up of the Viper, the Prowler was the hit on the show circuit and Chrysler wanted to capitalize on that. Despite having initial success, the car proved to be a failure mainly due to the fact that customers expected V8 and not V6 power.
