Massively popular as a concept, the Prowler took three years to make production but when it did, demand was huge, to the point where its $40,000 price quickly doubled on the second-hand market. It was headed by Chrysler design head Tom Gale, himself a hot rodder, who wanted to give the public a new slant on a 1930s hot rod. The idea was to keep it light, with an aluminium chassis to which slender A-arms were attached either end for full independent suspension. At the front, the coilovers were mounted inboard as per race cars, while the rear had a multi-link arrangement. To distribute weight evenly the gearbox was mounted out back. It all added up to neutral handling and supercar cornering. The only slight let down was the power - although the 24v engine was linear in output, it didn't have enough torque to make the Prowler a true hot rod.
