Wicked “Medusa” ‘Cuda With A VIPER V10 Under The Hood

- in Cars

Here’s a fire-breathing 1971 Plymouth Barracuda street machine called the “Medusa”, the car no Mopar fan is able to resist.

This car is the work of All Speed Customs in Muskegon, MI. They started off with a plain old 1971 Barracuda, then they went nuts.

Their 1971 Plymouth Cuda “Medusa” catches the eyeballs with unique body mods like extended quarter panels, shaved drip rails, door handles from Aston Martin, rear diffuser panel with a center-exit exhaust that was adapted from a Ferrari and more complemented by one-off 20-inch Forgeline wheels and killer paint job.

The car rides on a Roadster Shop FastTrack chassis with C6 Corvette front suspension and a four-link rear with Penske double-adjustable coilovers. Instead of a HEMI under the hood of their Medusa Cuda team All Speed Customs have inserted a nicely detailed Dodge Viper V10 motor beefed up to 750 horsepower. Behind that sits a six-speed automatic transmission controlled by paddle-shifters, connected to a Strange Engineering 9-inch rear end.

14” Wilwood disc brakes handle stopping the Viper-powered beast with 6-piston rotors up front and 4-pistons out back. The brakes are engaged with the help of a Hydratech power brake assist to make it stop on a dime without putting the pedal through the floor. The wheels are custom Forgeline’s that measure 20×10” front and 20×12” rear wrapped in 335/30ZR20 Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires.

The interior is pretty wild as well. The dashboard and center console are completely made by hand, first built of sheet metal and then molded in carbon fiber. There is an iPad in the vertical orientation (like the screen in a Tesla Model S) in the center of the dash, featuring a GPS and full audio controls.
