Dodge Demon

This curious-looking creature - the car, not the passenger - is the Dodge Demon, an ambitious attempt by the Chrysler Group to produce a lightweight, nimble roadster.

In fact, with the exception of that truck-style crosshair grill, you could be forgiven for mistaking the Demon for a small European roadster.

And that's exactly what Dodge is aiming for. The Demon is similar in size to the Mazda MX-5, and gets a 172bhp 2.4-litre petrol engine powering the rear wheels. There's even a six-speed manual 'box - a sure sign of heavy European influence.

There are plenty in Geneva who are enamoured by the Demon's styling, but we're still a touch unsure. It's a good effort, but it doesn't seem to quite fit together.

We'll withhold final judgment until the Demon makes it to production, though.
