2008 Chrysler Concept ‘Cuda

Hot on the heels of the production Challenger, this one-of Barracuda might be Chrysler’s next new car.

Created by Gaffoglio Family Metalcrafters for GM and an ambitious customer, the Concept ‘Cuda is the next step in Chryslers retro-themed releases. Styling comes directly from the 1970 Hemi ‘Cudas which represent the upper echelon of muscle car performance.

This 2008 Concept is built on a modified Charger platform and uses it’s interior. Attached to this is a completely new body with carbon fiber accents. Zenetti 22 inch wheels complete the package.

With the positive response received during the car’s launch at the 2007 SEMA show, Chrysler should be seriously considering a small production run of this little-forgotten classic.
