2012 Plymouth Barracuda

cudaAnother muscle car that we’ll never see! The Plymouth ‘Cuda concept is the work of Rafael Reston, a digital designer from São Paulo, Brazil. The ‘Cuda concept was inspired by the 1971 Plymouth Barracuda, and follows the recent trend of reviving legendary muscle cars like the Dodge Challenger, Chevrolet Camaro and Ford Mustang. The ‘Cuda concept is based on the platform from the Chrysler 300C, while the proposed power source is a 5.4 litre bio-fueled HEMI V8. The 22″ wheels and aggressive, purposeful looking body of the ‘Cuda is formed from aluminium. While the hood, spoilers and side panels are made from lightweight carbon fiber. Reston created the ‘Cuda concept using Alias Studio Tools 2008, Rhinoceros 4.0 was used for the interior, with the final rendering in Bunkspeed Hypershot. The final rendering was completed by John Boyd using PhotoShop CS4.
