Legendary Motorcar Company decided to create a twin-turbo V10 1,000+ horsepower monster of a 1970 Chrysler Barracuda – a project that has taken over 5,000 man hours over the course of nearly two years. Just days after completion, LMC took the ‘Cuda to Chrysler’s Proving Grounds to race it against a Ferrari Enzo supercar.
LMC started with a rusted out shell of a 1970 Barracuda and a salvaged red Dodge Viper. Then they spent two years combining the two together in the process of creating a supercar-rivaling beast of a classic. When it was all said and done the folks at LMC said they invested 5-6,000 hours creating this metallic green ‘Cuda, and their hard work paid off as they broke 200 mph at Chrysler’s Proving Grounds in Michigan.
