1971 Plymouth Barracuda from Furious 5 at Barrett-Jackson 2011 - Click above for high-res image gallery
A 1971 Plymouth Barracuda
is a wonderful sight to behold. However, for the producers of Furious 5
(the upcoming installment in the Fast and Furious
franchise), it's apparently not quite furious enough. How do they solve the problem? By stuffing a 636 Hemi under the hood and attaching a blower larger than Vin Diesel's impression of himself.
The car features five-point harnesses, leather-lined race seats and a custom dash signed by Paul Walker, Vin Diesel, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and Justin Lin. Based on the "Frankencuda" Muscle Machine diecast toy, this custom 'Cuda is a fantasy car come to life.
