Cuda 71

 

 

The engine is a Hemi 572ci all-aluminium that makes 870hp on pump gas...  

The Cuda has a C5 Corvette suspension with a six-speed transaxle. The front brakes are 15 inch Red Devil titanium with six piston calipers...

 

 

 The front fenders, hood, and front and rear spoilers are custom molded out of carbon fiber. Curb weight is an anorexic 2,800 pounds....

 

 

 

The 535-pound engine is set way back in the chassis behind the front-axle centerline, yielding a front mid-engine layout. The rear-mounted gearbox is positioned so far forward that the front of the trans case is within an arm's-length of the driver seat.

 

 

The 572ci Hemi is fitted with a Hogan's sheetmetal intake manifold and a FAST EFI system. It features an Indy Legend aluminum block, a Callies crank, Eagle rods, and Wiseco 11.5:1 pistons topped with a set of Indy heads. Air enters through a pair of Accufab 90mm throttle-bodies, and a 268/264-at-0.050 cam actuates the valves. Keeping it lubed is a four-stage dry sump oiling system by Missile Enterprises capped by a Charlie's aluminum oil pan. The exhaust, with 2.25-inch header primaries and 3.5-inch collector pipes, were custom bent by Alan Johnson. Power is sent to a trick twin-disc 10.5-inch Centerforce LMC aluminum clutch, and a Lakewood Top Fuel-style direct-drive bellhousing allows eliminating the torque tube. The bulletproof T56 transaxle was built by Rockland Standard Gear utilizing 9310 nickel-alloy gears, and the Drive Shaft Shop provided the halfshafts. Tightening up the suspension are Hyperco coilovers with Bilstein shocks, and Addco torsion-bar-style sway bars. Putting it all to the ground are Michelin tires measuring 295/30-19 up front and 335/30-20 out back, mounted on one-off 19x10 front, 20x12 rear, Colorado Customs two-piece wheels.
